In 2002 Gerard Besamusca identified the need for a system that gathered all the relevant data for a vineyard and allowed an overview of exactly what was going on to make more informed recommendations for his clients.

This is our story...

Work was started on a database and desktop application to collate, and effectively output, all the information that was being collected.

As the platform became a reality and Gerard began using the resulting graphs in his reports, it quickly became apparent that the clients themselves were keen to interact with the data. It was obvious how much extra value was created once all the information was collated in the one platform.

In 2004 the cloud based visual tool was released for presenting and sharing results with growers, viticulturists and consultants. Integrape was born.

After a decade of use by dozens of Agconsult viticulture clients, the database had amassed over 50,000 samples and became an indispensable tool to many. The decision was made to break Integrape away from Gerard's consultancy, and realise its true potential as a standalone product.

In 2018 after investigating leading-edge platforms and technologies available, Integrape was rebuilt from the ground up as a GIS based system, enabling integration with a range of the latest available data.

2 years later the Vure Sampling App was acquired to provide integrated in-field data collection, and a development partnership with Spore Lab was established.

With more data options in the pipeline and a constantly improving geospatial component, Integrape looks set to be the go-to Vineyard diagnostic tool for truly grasping the health of the vineyard.
