From the start Silvacom has been dedicated to innovation and technology. Starting as a consulting group to the forestry sector in 1983, the focus of Silvacom has always been to develop innovative software and technology solutions to support ground-breaking analytical work and field data collection systems for industrial clients. Years of experience developing on many different platforms in many different programming languages (Basic, Pascal, C, C++, C#, Silverlight, Java, and Flex) targeting various end-point devices (server, desktop, handheld, custom-built GPS computers) has given Silvacom a wealth of expertise. With a successful track record for providing leading edge solutions and products to the forestry sector Silvacom was able to build on that foundation and extend innovation and technology to other industrial clients. Today Silvacom has entire suites of solutions and products for both the energy sector and government in addition to an ongoing commitment to our existing and new forestry clients.
Most of our technology products and application development efforts are web-based for maximum agility and flexibility, using the latest generation web 2.0 Rich Internet Application (RIA) frameworks like Adobe Flex and Microsoft Silverlight, supported by Java and .Net business layers and renowned enterprise database platforms like Oracle™. Our development team is a creative and innovative group that prides themselves on always pushing the frontiers of technology to refine our existing suites and build new tools that help our clients more effectively meet their business objectives.
For our clients in forestry, energy and government that are faced with ever evolving regulatory and operational business landscapes we help turn data into meaningful information which generates faster and more accurate decisions that allow our clients to achieve peak performance.

Rifle Approach Philosophy
The success of our applications lends itself in part to a philosophy of focused simplicity where we avoid trying to provide everything to everyone all in one package for an enormous cost. We develop simple, easy to use products that precisely meet specific business requirements and are cost effective both to develop and also to maintain.
Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)
Silvacom develops effective and engaging applications with powerful desktop-like functionality that are accessed through a web interface so all you need is an internet connection and standard web browser.
Silvacom is an Application Service Provider. What is your core business? For our clients that desire it, we have the infrastructure to host and maintain your custom application once it is built then serve it up to you through the internet via a software as a service model. In today's competitive business environment, many organizations are re-evaluating their core businesses. While all modern businesses require applications to support their business, many are realizing that supporting those applications is a costly and daunting effort which takes away from their primary focus. At Silvacom part of our core business is to provide applications as a service so that our clients can focus exclusively on their core business.
