Measuring lumber bundles volume accurately and efficiently has always been a challenge for the industry, as it is a costly process in terms of time and money. Until now it has been that the more accurate you want to be the more expensive it is to achieve. Specialized machine tally systems are bulky, expensive, hard to use and time-consuming. On the other hand, manual measurements rely on human decision, which is error prone.
TallyExpress - the revolutionary lumber tally app – promises to offer an affordable and accurate solution from your smartphone. Using artificial intelligence and sophisticated computer vision algorithms, TallyExpress allows you to measure bundles in a fast and reliable way, directly on your Android device. With just a photo, TallyExpress recognizes and counts each board individually, calculates their respective widths and computes the total volume in a matter of seconds.
How it works
After you download the app from Play Store, place the reference on the bundle and take the picture (see video below). TallyExpress will automatically detect and count the boards, also computing the volume. Next, the app generates a tally report with a picture. The whole process takes no longer than one minute.
1. Take a picture of the bundle
2. The app detects the boards
3. A tally report with picture is generated
TallyExpress sets high standards, achieving a 98% level of accuracy on volume. Any faulty detections can be quickly adjusted. The software gets smarter the more you use it to measure your bundles. The more you use the app, the smarter it gets and the more accurate it becomes.
Your measurements are synced to the TallyExpress web application in the cloud, where you can review the results, make any final adjustments, share by email or export them to your inventory system. The entire process can be done by a single employee, with no other assistance needed.
