McRock Industrial Internet Fund Backs RtTech Software

Toronto, Ontario–(February 24, 2015) – McRock iNFund, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) venture  capital fund managed by McRock Capital, has led a $3 million Series A financing in Moncton-based  RtTech Software. Existing investor New Brunswick Innovation Foundation also participated in the round. 

RtTech develops and markets software apps that provide Operational Intelligence for industrial facilities.  RtTech offers two main solutions – RtDuet, a real-time software app designed to improve equipment  availability and utilization in industrial facilities like manufacturing and power generation, and RtEMIS,  an energy management information system designed to reduce energy consumption. 

As part of this financing, Scott MacDonald and Whitney Rockley, the co-founders of McRock, have both  joined RtTech’s Board of Directors.  

“This funding could not have come at a better time as we look to capitalize on the exploding IIoT markets. We are adding features to our flagship industrial software apps that will leverage cloud-based  technology and will make our products more widely accessible and affordable to our global industrial  facilities clients”, said Pablo Asiron, CEO of RtTech Software. “The McRock founders have a tremendous  amount of experience growing technology companies. We are proud to have attracted an investment  partner with such a strong focus on the Industrial Internet”. 

In January 2015, McRock announced a strategic investment in its venture capital fund by Cisco Systems  and two of Canada’s largest fund-of-funds investors, Teralys Capital and BDC Capital.
