Earlier it was tough to keep track of the whole material and calculating the logs measurement at the same time. Now the process is very easy and there there is no chance of errors.
You can monitor the work of staff in machines they can’t replace the logs with other logs, they can’t feed the wrong girth of log because Timbba will identify immediately. Also, Timbba can check the decreasing CFT value of each log in real-time. Also, you can get the reports for a variation on logs at the end of the day.
