Vancouver, Canada, March 12, 2013 – Aquatic Informatics Inc. a global leader in providing innovative software solutions for hydrologic data management and analysis, announced today that it was selected as one of the top 15 clean technology companies in British Columbia by Rocket Builders, a market strategy and consulting firm.

“Each year when we choose the Ready to Rocket companies, we are looking for those companies that have best matched technical innovation with market opportunity. Aquatic Informatics is an excellent example of the right technology for the right customers at the right time,” said Dave Thomas, Senior Partner, Rocket Builders.

“In 2012, Aquatic Informatics nearly doubled revenues as the company was laser focused on major national accounts,” said Ed Quilty, President and CEO of Aquatic Informatics. “AQUARIUS software was successfully deployed at Water Survey of Canada to manage real-time data operations for its national water monitoring network of 2400 stream gages. We then won an eight million dollar ‘once-in-a-generation’ contract with the US Geological Survey to optimize the management of water time series data collected from 8000 stream gaging stations nationally. These successes have added significant momentum globally, resulting in major new contracts in North America, Latin America, South East Asia, and Australasia. Aquatic Informatics is exceptionally positioned to capitalize on the rapidly growing environmental monitoring industry as the current market leader in hydrological data management.”
