We believe technology should be reliable, feel effortless and provide new opportunities and above all, make it easier for botanical collection holders to reach their goals in the important work they do. The concerns and needs of the community are our driving force and inspiration.
At Species360, our mission is to help institutions to better manage their zoological, aquatic and botanical collections, and to inform global species conservation efforts. We’re a non-profit tech company serving over 1,400 members in nearly 100 countries around the world.
In December 2022, the team at Botanical Software joined Species360 as the newly formed Botanical Solutions department, expanding our mission to include plant species conservation.
With more than a decade of experience working on developing plant records solutions for the community of botanic gardens, Botanical Software had recently started working on the next generation plant record system Hortis.
Hortis, launched in 2021, is a plant collection platform which extends beyond the traditional definition of a plant records system. Our aim is to redefine the role and usefulness of plant records in botanic gardens through innovation.
We’re a product-focused team dedicated to building better analytical tools for botanic gardens. We’re a friendly bunch — come and say hi : )

In April, our team focused on enhancing the user experience and unveiled our brand-new logo, carefully crafted to reflect our values and mission. Read more about April’s highlights below.
In March, we added features to help make managing your plant collection even easier. This includes an enhanced dashboard with team activity, easier tag management with filters, and the ability to filter plant materials based on their condition.
