Our Purpose. Our Mission.
Aquatic Informatics is a mission-driven software company that organizes the world’s water data to make it accessible and useful.
We are guided by our “3P” core values which balance Planet, People, and Prosperity. These values run through the entire business and can be seen in decision making, employee support, software donations, volunteer work, and commitment to customers
Data silos are making information inaccessible and prevents critical life-saving actions. Unlike any other organization in our space, Aquatic Informatics can manage data from any discrete or time-series data from source water through to the receiving environment.
As the world’s largest water data management company with more than 1,500 customers in 60 countries, Aquatic Informatics is unique in that it provides information technology solutions for all water.
From raindrop to sewer discharge, we help our customers drive the efficient management of water information across the entire water cycle to protect human health and reduce environmental impact.
As our urban water resource data management platform, Aquatic Informatics is enabling the City of Bellingham to efficiently produce water data of the highest standards. With Aquarius, water data management activities are completed much more efficiently. I’m not only saving time, but I can also ensure that I provide end users with the highest quality data. I’m better able to meet their needs for timely, accurate information
By creating an environment of kindness and support, we unquestionably support our people in times of need.
We aim to improve the environment and minimize our footprint by keeping the environment at the forefront of our decisions.
We aim to conduct business in a fair way for all. We are aligned. We are committed to our customer. We strive to always be always fair.
We aim to be a high-growth company. We embrace lean principles. We don’t like waste. With great people, we innovate and achieve more.
