The partnership will streamline processes across North America for the pest control company.

Holmdel, New Jersey-based WorkWave, a provider of software as a service solutions partnered with Certus, Guilford, Connecticut, a pest control company focused on rapid expansion through acquisitions, to create a consolidated software platform for all of its sales and operations company-wide.

With 42 acquisitions in just two years, Certus has become one of the fastest-growing pest control providers in the industry.

“We have found immense value in selecting PestPac as our software partner across our sales and service operations because we can onboard our new companies quickly and effectively, with the knowledge that they now have access to the most powerful pest control solution on the market. Our teams complement each other well and constantly learn from one another,” says Mike Givlin, CEO and co-founder of Certus. “We’re working on a comprehensive view of all of our company data, better reporting and more efficient routing capabilities. We would not be able to achieve that comprehensive view of our business without WorkWave by our side.”

Certus selected PestPac by WorkWave in 2020, citing the need for deep pest control functionality, the ability to scale across a large operation while maintaining speed and performance, a breadth of offerings that covered both residential and commercial operations and the ability to accommodate a complex mix of service offerings found among the diverse pest control providers.

Certus then undertook a standard process to efficiently consolidate each new acquisition into one North American instance of the software.

“We are honored to be partnering with such a forward-looking and innovative company. Certus is representative of the new way of thinking among pest control operators — thinking beyond service, as we call it — focusing on a great customer experience combined with higher growth and profitability,” says David Giannetto, CEO of WorkWave. “Certus knows that they can rely on WorkWave to provide the software necessary to help them achieve their objectives, creating synergies in an increasingly complex operation and giving them the confidence to focus on growth and providing the best service possible. That’s what success means to us.”

Certus is accelerating implementation so that all of its companies will be in one single, integrated platform within the next 12 months.
