Business in Vancouver selects Aquatic Informatics as candidate for distinguished award to be handed out at 2018 BC Export Awards.
Vancouver, Canada – November 1, 2018 – Aquatic Informatics, a mission-driven company that organizes the world’s water data, has been selected as a finalist for the BC Export Awards in the Clean Technology category by Business in Vancouver.
The BC Export Awards are the province’s most prestigious awards paying tribute to the success and innovative approaches of British Columbia’s export companies. The awards program annually seeks out BC’s top exporters and honours them for their achievements in 9 categories, including Clean Technology, Consumer Products, and Digital Media & Entertainment. The Awards are presented by Business in Vancouver; the Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology; and the BC Division of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters, with support from annual sponsors.
Aquatic Informatics is a water data management and analytics software company that provides solutions to customers across the entire water cycle with its three software brands: AQUARIUS, Linko, and WaterTrax. “Our company is uniquely positioned to address the world’s water issues in an integrated way,” commented James Reyes, Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. “We provide solutions to more than 1,000 customers in over 60 countries and we have seen growing success in the export of our software across all three of our brands. WaterTrax and Linko joined the Aquatic Informatics family in mid-2017 and, after many years of success with our AQUARIUS solution in Australia, we made the first WaterTrax sale in Australia earlier this year. The world increasingly needs accessible and useful water information, and through our growing global partnerships and sales efforts, we are meeting that demand.”
“Aquatic Informatics has always been somewhat unique in the BC technology sector,” commented Ed Quilty, President & CEO of Aquatic Informatics. “From the get-go, our focus has been on global markets, far beyond Canada and North America. We have customers on six continents – Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Central America, South America, and Oceania – and some of those customers even work on the seventh continent, Antarctica. While our largest customer base is in the US, water is a massive global problem. More than half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people sick from water-related diseases and nearly 2 million children die every year from unsafe water. Our purpose as a company is to protect life with open and timely water information.” Ed also added, “We are proud of our work worldwide and we also have always been a proud member of BC’s thriving cleantech export community, which is so important for our province’s and our country’s economic futures. It’s an honour to have been recognized as a finalist for this award.”
The announcement of the category award winners will take place at the 2018 BC Export Awards on November 22 in Vancouver, Canada. View the full list of 2018 BC Export Awards finalists here.
