Aquatic Informatics Inc. has announced the successful amalgamation with WaterTrax and Linko Technology in one of the most important business combinations in recent history for water professionals looking to partner with a single software leader to solve their complex water challenges.
“This amalgamation is an opportunity to deliver greater value for our 1,000 customers, fuel accelerated growth, and realize our mission to host the world’s environmental data for the sustainable management of water resources,” said Ed Quilty, President and CEO at Aquatic Informatics. “WaterTrax and Linko are software solutions preferred by over 550 water and wastewater utilities and agencies for streamlining environmental data management to achieve regulatory compliance and operational excellence. Their 98 percent annual customer renewal rates make it clear that utilities trust these brands for superior cloud-based software and world-class service. All three organizations have a culture of obsessing over our customers and that will continue.”
Aquatic Informatics’ AQUARIUS brand will continue as the most trusted solution worldwide for surface water data management. WaterTrax will continue as a market leader in the municipal drinking water and wastewater segments with its suite of easy-to-use cloud-based solutions for compliance management and operations. Linko will remain the software of choice for industrial pretreatment, FOG (fats, oil, and grease), and liquid hauled waste management among municipal wastewater authorities.
“Integrated water resources management can help communities thrive – economically, socially, and environmentally. Our combined software offering can help water professionals better manage water – from source protection, to safe water delivery, to optimum wastewater treatment,” explained Eric Dorgelo, Chief Technology Officer at Aquatic Informatics. Vickitt Lau, Vice President of Technology and James Griffiths, Chief Financial Officer will join the leadership team at Aquatic Informatics to ensure continuity of service to WaterTrax and Linko customers. James added, “Our combined bench strength will provide synergies in research, software development, IT, customer service, and marketing so we can more optimally meet the evolving needs of water professionals and remain the industry standard for environmental data management.”
The corporation will continue to operate offices in Vancouver, British Columbia; Denver, Colorado; Ferndale, Washington; and Hobart, Australia to best service a growing global customer base. Ed Quilty added, “I wanted to extend my appreciation to our long-term local investors, including Renewal Funds, who helped support our growth.” This transaction was also made possible by new capital funding from XPV Water Partners. This investment will help expand Aquatic Informatics software suite and solidifies the company’s position as the global leader for environmental data management, analysis, and compliance software.
