Mobile App for Portable Band Sawmill Owners & Operators

Tell us at Norwood what functions you would like to see in a mobile app for portable sawmill operators.

Norwood Sawmills just developed a log scaling app (Norwood Sawmills Calculator) but we want to know what else would make you more efficient and productive.  What features and functions would you like in a new sawyers’ mobile app? 


Please let us know in the comments below. Thanks!

I like it but for folks like us with huge hands its hard to slide the scale and get to the right dimensions. maby not something easy to fix... or something I can fix and I haven't figured out how yet !

If so, then instead of sliding the scale, you should be able to hit the number, and type in a different one. That way, you can use the keyboard instead of the slide.

Hi there, does it also apply to e-commerce development? I mean the same principles? It is so hard to find a good developer for an ambitious project, feel almost desperate.

When it comes to eCommerce, things are a little bit different. Meaning that you need more serious IT development support to succeed. There many steps and certain stages to follow, so I think that ecommerce development team must be involved at every one of them. One person or a small team will not make it happen.
