VSNi and IBP have been collaborative partners since 2011 and together have developed Breeding View, a statistical analysis module, based on the solid analytical engine of Genstat to work exclusively with BMS Pro. Genstat is a world leading statistical analysis tool used and trusted by those particularly in plant breeding. Breeding View allows for rapid phenotypic and genotypic analyses of field trial observations. It offers an alternative easy user interface to Genstat which delivers a vast range of statistical techniques for both the novice and the experienced user.  

The partnership with VSNi started as a technical collaboration but quickly evolved with VSNi taking on a commercial role too. The commercial side is a very important part to the long term sustainability plans for IBP and the BMS. VSNi manage all the commercial aspects from providing technical user support to licensing and commercial sales.
