ECI Software Solutions, Fort Worth, Texas, a provider of cloud-based business management solutions, acquired ThermoGRID, a cloud-based solution for small-to-medium residential service companies. ThermoGRID will become part of ECI’s field service division, under division president Laryssa Alexander.
Developed by Adam Cory, a former general manager of an HVAC company dissatisfied with the offerings already on the market, ThermoGRID is a software as a service solution designed to help contractors, cleaning companies, electricians, HVAC technicians, lawn care and landscaping businesses and plumbers to manage scheduling, dispatching, invoicing, client history and inventory management, among other functions. To help accelerate ThermoGRID’s growth, ECI plans on making investments in all critical areas.
“ECI has helped small and medium businesses grow profitably and sustainably for decades,” says ECI CEO Ron Books. “Bringing ThermoGRID into the ECI portfolio will enable us to bring that experience to a new market and we can’t wait to see what we accomplish together.”
“When I created ThermoGRID years ago, my goal was to create a software for field service contractors that would make them more efficient, accurate, and profitable,” says Adam Cory, president and owner of ThermoGRID. “Over the last 10 years, we have helped many contractors achieve a high level of success by continuing to enhance ThermoGRID. Becoming part of ECI will help us continue that work in an even bigger and better way than before, creating more opportunities for our customers.”
