Important news about IrisBG (December 13, 2019)

The software package IrisBG was a result of collaboration between three companies, Digital Forvaltning AS in Norway, Compositae AS in Norway and Botanical Software Ltd in the UK.

Recently, the decision was taken to dissolve the company Digital Forvaltning AS, which took place on the 6th December 2019. As a consequence of this, the contracts between the three companies related to the collaboration on the IrisBG software package also ended.
