Software solutions company WorkWave signed an agreement to acquire Walled Lake, Mich.-based Real Green Systems, which provides field service solutions in the green service industries.
WorkWave Chief Executive Officer David Giannetto on June 22, the day of its announcement, described the acquisition as “something rarely seen.”
“It is two successful, fast-growing, market-leading companies coming together to create something truly special,” Giannetto said. “It marks the beginning of a new chapter where WorkWave will help our customers focus on the future, helping them to go beyond service to create effective, fast-growing, highly profitable service organizations that also deliver the best service experience possible. Real Green believes in this same mission, and together we will allow every solution in this expanded WorkWave product portfolio to deliver greater value.”
The merger of these two companies will allow Real Green to advance more quickly and WorkWave to embrace its depth of expertise in the green industries, according to the announcement. While the Real Green solution and PestPac will remain separate, additional product offerings that support customer growth, including the equally respected Coalmarch and WorkWave Agency groups, will combine forces to maximize their development and value, the company said.
“After years of watching WorkWave develop alongside Real Green, we’ve long known that the combination of these two companies would create something special,” said Bill Nunan, president and CEO of Real Green, who will stay on as the head of Real Green operations within WorkWave, in a prepared statement. “We are thrilled to be joining such a progressive solutions provider that shares our commitment to helping customers thrive, and who so strongly supports the continued growth and development of Real Green solutions, and our passionate customer base.”
