GCA advises TEAM Software on its sale to WorkWave
Much like WorkWave’s recent acquisition of Real Green, on which GCA advised Real Green, the acquisition of TEAM Software marks another moment where market leaders are coming together to create something unique. Combined, these companies bring over 100 years of experience partnering with the best service providers in the world, allowing WorkWave to offer the broadest and most complete set of solutions that empower service companies — from SMB to enterprise — to grow their business, improve profitability and beat their competition.
In addition to its market-leading position in the pest control and green industry verticals, WorkWave will become a leading software provider in the commercial cleaning, facilities management and security service industries with the acquisition of TEAM Software and its enterprise-level solutions. TEAM will also expand WorkWave’s presence in key international markets, creating a local presence in EMEA and APAC that supports WorkWave’s increased presence overseas. This further supports WorkWave as it delivers on its mission of helping customers grow their business, service their customers and maximise their money in these new vertical and geographic markets.
David F. Giannetto, CEO of WorkWave, said: “This acquisition marks a major step forward in the execution of WorkWave’s strategy to push into new markets, while leveraging our proven track record of helping our customers provide superior service and build fast-growing and highly profitable companies. We are thrilled to be joining forces with TEAM to deliver on our shared commitment to provide the greatest value to our entire customer base.”
Darren Roos, Chairperson of the Board at WorkWave, added: “With the acquisition of proven brands such as Real Green, Slingshot, Coalmarch, and TEAM Software, WorkWave now stands alone as the premier provider of the broadest set of SaaS software and solutions supporting the widest range of service industries. WorkWave has a proven track record of delivering customers value, so empowering more customers, across more geographies, with more industry-specific solutions adds fuel to the company’s continued growth.”
John Leiferman, CEO of TEAM Software, commented: “We are thrilled to join an industry leader like WorkWave, who has proven service-industry expertise along with a commitment to supporting customer growth through powerful solutions and exceptional service. WorkWave’s mission and approach mirror how we think and operate as well. Together, we can provide more value-driven innovation to the industries we support through our greater combination of world-class tools, expertise, and experience.”
