Offer the digital opportunities to the wood industry
Apinfor team has a double culture: wood field and the digital. Those experts from the field are well aware of the difficulties faced by the wood businesses, which are mostly craft companies, making the industry alive.
Very involved in the environment preservation, this sector was recognized in 2014 as the 14th French industrial sector. Today, this dynamic field has many challenges to overcome.
And to develop its competitiveness, it focuses on innovation.
Apinfor company has developed innovative mobile applications for professionals, whether in cutting, mechanical processing, transportation and/or in sales. Destined to make them improve efficiency and traceability. In fact before, professionals were writing down data on a paper, and then they had to enter it in the database when returned from the field. The handwriting was a source of error, and this double task was a big waste of time.
