A Mosgiel based company, TracMap, has won a prestigious award at the annual Australian Wine Industry Impact Awards. The company provides grape growers with GPS guidance and mapping systems to manage activities on vineyards. The award was an indication that the technology can make a difference according to CEO, David Glen. The technology enables growers to plan, perform and report on jobs performed and understand which actions work or do not work when planning for the next season. The technology is being used by a number of wineries in Australia, including the biggest grape grower Treasury Wine Estates, and TracMap is promoting the solution in California.
