Background and contact persons for IrisBG


Making record keeping easy since 1996

Our journey began back in 1996, when the first version of IrisBG was developed by Øyvind Rustan in close collaboration with the Botanical Garden, University of Oslo (Norway). The latest version 4 was relased in 2018 and introduced several new features to IrisBG.

We believe that IrisBG should serve as a helpful tool that can facilitate the everyday work with your collection. Whether it is accessioning, sharing plant material with other institutions, creating a new tour on your premises or tracking location on seedlings being planted in your garden.

One of our major success factors is our engaged community who is sharing their experience and guidance to other members, as well as continuously feeding back suggestions for improvement to us. Each new version of IrisBG is the result of a mix of a wishlist of features from our community, research and development.

IrisBG is one of the most comprehensive integrated software solutions available for botanical gardens today.

IrisBG® is delivered by Compositae AS.
