With the help of a Horizon 2020 SME Instrument-phase 2 project, they will be able to add Integrated Pest Management (IPM) functionalities and bring VECMAP®IPM to the market. Within 5 years Avia-GIS will enable 2000 SME pest controllers and 2340 local authorities to shift to IPM strategies. With the grant they will raise revenue from 2 M€ to 14.2 M€ in 2024, and increase the headcount from 15 to 58.
