About Tenco
Tenco is one of New Zealand’s largest exporters of forest products. We have built to this position since 1991 when the company was set up to export lumber to growing Asian export markets.  Experience and reputation count; from small beginnings Tenco has become the largest independent exporter of New Zealand lumber and New Zealand’s 4th largest log exporter.  Tenco has a regular shipping program of their own log vessels and in combination with these and other ships currently calls  at 7 New Zealand ports (5 North Island and 2 South Island).
Tenco buys standing forests.  Tenco currently has a number of forests which they purchased at harvestable age to log over a number of years for export and domestic markets.  Tenco also regularly buys smaller tracts of forest to harvest immediately or immature forests to hold until harvest time.  Tenco is interested in broadening  the  base of owners from whom it purchases forests and stands of trees.  A deal with Tenco is a certain transaction.  The owner and Tenco will agree on a value of the tree crop and then Tenco will pay this amount to the owner either in a lump sum amount or on rate per volume unit out-turn from the forest depending on the nature of the tree crop.
Tenco knows there are a lot of farmers who have trees that are close or ready to harvest and will be asking themselves how they should proceed with the sale of their trees.  For some farmers the kind of certain transaction with money in the bank could well be appealing. Tenco is actively interested in buying harvestable forests or trees from areas including all the North Island (except the Gisborne and East Coast districts) and Nelson & Marlborough in the South Island .

If you own a forest in this area (16 years and older) and are ready to enter into this kind of agreement Tenco is interested to develop something with you.

March 2013

NZFFA have implemented a web-based Member Management System (MMSalso called a "Member Relationship Management system" or MRM) with a full suite of management solutions for our membership. This includes online subscriptions and restricted web content, managed through a web interface and database, with a range of user access options.

Radiant CMS

Our MMS is based on Radiant CMSContent Management System. Radiant is open source software (i.e. no licensing fees) with a strong development community behind it. There are a number of reasons why we chose Radiant over other content management systems:

This all makes Radiant a simple yet powerful, extensible, easy to use, Ruby on Rails-based content management system. Because Ruby on Rails is an intuitive programming language and framework (taking advantage of the convention over configuration paradigm) this enables fast and low cost web development and customisation. 

Our Member Management System

Our requirements were for:

User Access where:

  • Administrators access and manage site content, subscriptions and a web-based membership database ;
  • Members are able to access and edit their own membership details, and subscribe online to multiple groups without fuss;
  • Subscribed content is available to members using membership login;
  • Each branch secretary has access to a branch membership directory that can be edited;
  • Limited "back end" user access where users can create and edit website content themselves (such as branch web pages);
  • "Front end" access where users can create and add to searcheable information archives.

Features also include:

  • a web marketplace platform and business directory;
  • administrative email functionality for emailing individual groups or multiple groups;
  • web content that is easily created and maintained by laypeople;
  • an advanced subscription system for managing complex, multiple group levy choices and online payment.
Rob Guthrie and Craig Ambrose from Enspiral delivered the custom programming for our web-based community. We now have a membership database where subscriptions, content and members are all managed centrally and online. Our web based membership database is the heart of our community, with customised roles available for both front end and back end access so that our members can do exactly what they want within our site.
