We are an proven team with decades of experience.
vinBalance was born when a experienced and successful winery owner collaborated with
an established software firm .
Eric Rindal founded Waterbrook Winery in 1984 as one of the pioneer wineries in the Walla Walla valley.
He grew Waterbrook to be the largest in the Walla Walla valley with a well-established tasting room and
In 2002 Eric approached Software Planning in search of a comprehensive accounting solution.
Existing software on the market didn't provide the accurate cost information he
needed to run his winery in an ever more competitive environment. He
also wanted absolute integration so that every member of his staff could
work together as a team.
Software Planning has worked since 1982 to provide complete accounting
and inventory solutions to customers in a variety of industries. Larry Nelson
and Jodi Emtman each have decades of experience in carefully analyzing
business problems and developing software to meet the need.
Two years of careful collaboration and development led to vinBalance, a comprehensive
software package that begins at the cellar door and carries all the way to the tasting
room. Every aspect of winery operation is managed in a single software system with
no duplication of effort.
With each vintage, vinBalance continues to grow in scope, sophistication
and ease of use. User driven development continues to refine vinBalance
to the needs of a changing industry.
Ingio/VinBalance LLC, a partnership of Eric Rindal, Larry Nelson and Jodi Emtman, markets and supports the Ingio winery managment system.
