TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rocscience Inc., Canada’s largest provider of geotechnical software solutions announced today that they have acquired Vancouver-based geotechnical software provider, NovoTech Software.

This strategic acquisition strengthens Rocscience’s current position in the market and will allow the company to branch out into new areas of geotechnical software development.
