Rocket Builders Has Named Aquatic Informatics to the 2016 Rocket Cleantech List for Its Outstanding Growth and Water Software Market Leadership

VANCOUVER, BC  --(Marketwired - March 04, 2016) - Aquatic Informatics Inc., a global leader in providing innovative software solutions for water data management and analysis, announced that it was named a cleantech leader on the 2016 Ready to Rocket Cleantech list. Aquatic Informatics is among the cleantech companies that are best positioned to capitalize on the technology sector trends that will lead to faster growth than their peers, according to Rocket Builders, a respected management consulting firm servicing the technology industry.

"The Cleantech sector in B.C. is very strong, and the companies on the list have overcome significant commercialization hurdles to become well established," according to Dave Thomas, Senior Partner at Rocket Builders. "These companies benefitted from acquiring key industry partnerships to establish great channels to market. Growth rates are better than any other region in North America."

"After much research into the trends driving growth in the Clean Technology sector, it became clear that Aquatic Informatics is well positioned to capitalize on these trends," said Geoffrey Hansen, Managing Partner, Rocket Builders.

Ed Quilty, President and CEO at Aquatic Informatics, discussed water sector trends, "Water issues like droughts, floods, and pollution are in global headlines every day. Climate change and over-use of water will mean that nearly 50% of people will live in water-stressed areas by 2030 according to the OECD. The need has never been greater for timely, accurate water information to ensure the sustainable use of natural water resources. As leaders in this high profile, high growth market, Aquatic Informatics delivers water data management and analysis solutions that help solve the world's most critical water challenges."

"We believe that growth in the environmental software market will accelerate, especially in the water industry. Water quantity data is increasingly combined with water quality data, especially driven by water recycling and more intensive management of water stressed, heavily regulated water markets, as in California," explained Grant Ferrier, President and CEO of Environmental Business International Inc. "Aquatic Informatics is well positioned to be at the forefront of this trend in water data collection, management, and use."
