Original Announcement by R&R on Jan. 16
R&R has learned Next Gear Solutions (NGS) has made yet another big restoration industry-related acquistion. NGS, the creators of DASH, will be officially announcing tomorrow that they've acquired Luxor CRM, the industry's only CRM software sales software specifically focused on restoration.
Next Gear CEO Garret Gray and his ever-growing tech team have made major strides in expanding the popular software and technology company in just the last few years. In early 2016, NGS announced forming a strategic and financial partnership with Serent Capital, a private equity firm.
“Next Gear weighed the decision to partner with Serent very carefully,” Gray said just after announcing the partnership. “[Serent's] alignment with our values and customer focused management philosophy drove our decision. We are excited for what this partnership will mean for our customers and the restoration industry in general as we are now better positioned to accelerate our product and service offering.”
Gray proved his point when, in June of 2016, Next Gear announced they had acquired a competitor in the restoration industry software space - ClientRunner. Since then, leaders of both companies have worked tirelessly to combine into one cohesive unit offering not only high quality products, but also top tier customer service. Gray and ClientRunner's former CEO Scott Severe, who is now NGS's CSO, sat down with R&R just last month to talk more about the acquisition and subsequent transition of combining two companies into one.
NGS is about more than growth and the bottom line. Those who work for Gray say as a leader, he is unmatched in his generosity and care for his team. The company has established a culture rooted deeply in helping and caring for their community and others, while creating cutting edge software products and having a little fun while they're at it.
R&R will have full details on this latest restoration industry acquisition when they are officially released tomorrow.
