Ingarp Träskydd - resources to meet growing demand

Ingarp Träskydd is a wood protection company that focuses on the treatment of wood products. As the company began using Timber by Pinja, it managed to cope with increased volumes, and also helped streamline processes.

Briefly about the cooperation

How it all started

Following the implementation project, which began in the fall of 2019, the system was put into operation in May 2020. According to Ingarp Träskydd, the implementation went smoothly, and the system worked without issues. Timber by Pinja supports the work of Ingarp Träskydd from the receipt of materials, via the impregnation and surface treatment process to the delivery. The system can exchange package information with customers’ systems in order to reduce the amount of manual work.

Ready to use: Timber by Pinja

Timber by Pinja is a versatile system with Swedish support. The ERP system has functions for, among other things, optimization and profitability calculation based on continuously updated data from the production, sales and delivery processes. Timber by Pinja is modular and suitable for both smaller companies and large groups with several units.

Efficiency, flexibility and time saving

Ingarp Träskydd is satisfied with the system’s flexibility and support. Timber by Pinja is a system that is ready to use, but the company can choose which functions of the program are essential for business. With Timber by Pinja, Ingarp Träskydd has saved up to an hour a day, which has significantly increased efficiency.

It has now become apparent that we have benefited enormously from the new system.

A versatile system supports growth and business digitalization

Timber by Pinja provided Ingarp Träskydd with a modern ERP system that helps the company to grow and eventually digitize various parts of its business. The system includes complete functions for finishing and wood processing. Ingarp Träskydd processes 70,000 cubic meters of wood per year. The company has about 20 employees and a revenue of about SEK 50 million. Ingarp Träskydd’s strength is to work with several impregnation processes that cover all needs. All processes are quality and environmental certified and meet the most stringent requirements. 

Pinja collaborates with Triona, a Swedish supplier of innovative IT solutions related to logistics and infrastructure operations. Triona offers the Swedish wood industry a Swedish version of the system, including implementation support and general support. 

When Ingarp Träskydd planned its system change, several different alternatives were compared, and the choice was Timber by Pinja. What made the system particularly interesting compared to others was the availability of Swedish support. It was also important that they, as a small company, aren’t left behind the bigger customers. In addition to a functional system, fast, flexible and personal help from Triona was also a decisive factor.

Following the implementation project, which began in the fall of 2019, the system was put into operation in May 2020. According to Ingarp Träskydd, the implementation went smoothly, and the system worked without issues. Timber by Pinja supports the work of Ingarp Träskydd from the receipt of materials, via the impregnation and surface treatment process to the delivery. The system can exchange package information with customers’ systems in order to reduce the amount of manual work.

“Ingarp Träskydd has worked actively and professionally”, says Jens Werner, CSO at Trinoa. “I think that the system really supported them at a time when demand was rising sharply, and the system helped them through that period.”

Responsive support in Swedish

“I feel that Triona was responsive to what we wanted regarding Timber by Pinja; they were genuinely interested in our needs”, says Linda Käller at Ingarp Träskydd. “There was good communication in connection with the implementation. We knew what we wanted and we had many fruitful discussions. We feel that Triona was working hard to meet our needs. We were treated fantastically!”

Timber by Pinja is a versatile system with functions, among other things, for optimization and profitability calculation based on continuously updated data from production, sales and delivery processes. Timber by Pinja is modulear and suitable for both smaller companies and large groups with several units. “It is a complete system that actually does not need any further customization. It is ready to be used on the Swedish market, as well”, states Elvis Punnek, Project Manager at Pinja.

The clear and smooth inventory management streamlines the search process in the package warehouses. Detailed information about packages is also available quickly and easily. “What we also like about the system compared to others is that we can filter out information and get the most important things, such as the wood protection class or the lengths. The function also helps with the searchability and traceability of the packages, which saves a huge amount of time. The system has many functions that we benefit from”, adds Johanna Pamp

Ingarp Träskydd says the system is flexible, and is satisfied with the support. Timber by Pinja is a program that is ready to use, but the company has selected the functions that are relevant to them. With Timber by Pinja, Ingarp Träskydd saves up to one working hour per day.

Demand for impregnated building materials increased enormously when people started working from home at the beginning of the pandemic. Due to the increased demand, the company has been working hard since the spring of 2020, and the year ended up being a record year. As the company began using Timber by Pinja, it managed to cope with the increased volumes, and it also helped streamline processes.

“By now it has become apparent that we benefit enormously from the new system”, states Käller. “Had we still used the previous system during our record year, it would have been much tougher for us. Timber by Pinja has helped us enormously, partly because of an insight of our stock, and partly due to the new way of making load orders. Printing the package notes is something that we benefited greatly from with the new system. Now we are able to make inbound deliveries, enter an entire delivery and press print – and get all of our package notes at once. “It’s absolutely golden – saves us a lot of time!”

“We can have between eight and ten loads that we need to load and print out notes on. Now we save 5–10 minutes per load, which means that we probably save up to one hour per day. Everything works in the system and with the support; we are really happy with it. In addition, being able to print notes for the entire load with the click of a button with Timber by Pinja while we do something else is really advantageous. It increases efficiency”, adds Johanna Pamp.
