Next Gear Solutions, acquired by CoreLogic in September 2021, has announced that restoration franchise PuroClean will upgrade to the full Next Gear Solutions enterprise-level software suite for contractors – DASH, QA Assist, LuxorCRM, ProAssist and Dispatch — at over 350 of its franchise locations.
PuroClean, named one of Inc. Magazine's annual Inc. 5000 – Fastest-Growing Businesses in 2021, after shopping many notable software vendors, selected Next Gear Solutions as its preferred restoration technology provider. A former customer, PuroClean returned to Next Gear Solutions because of its proven best-in-class technology, cross-network consistency, data integrity, consultative training approach, and job management blueprint that can be scaled across PuroClean's entire franchisee network and support the growth of the organization. By adopting Next Gear's technology, PuroClean can eliminate multiple independent software programs to create a more cohesive and efficient approach to restoration job management.
Next Gear Solutions is a workflow platform provider for property restoration. It is a platform property insurers, and restoration contractors use to modernize their claims handling workflow. Next Gear touts its cloud-based suite of market-leading products, such as DASH, QA Assist, and MICA, as having transformed how property insurers and contractors collaborate, driving better outcomes for those experiencing a property loss.
"We are excited to have been selected by PuroClean to help scale their award-winning company and bring Next Gear's leading-edge technology and proven methodology to their growing network of franchisees. This collaboration further demonstrates PuroClean's commitment to investing in the most innovative and forward-looking restoration technology companies," said Garret Gray, CEO and founder of Next Gear Solutions and managing director of CoreLogic Claims. "The consumer's growing demand for self-service solutions and digital experiences in restoration requires innovative solutions to provide a seamless experience to property owners while also implementing programs and tools to keep team members focused and engaged. The Next Gear Solutions blueprint checks both boxes, and we are excited to work together again."
Bud Summers, executive vice president of operations for PuroClean, added, "We are excited to rekindle our relationship with Next Gear Solutions, and now CoreLogic. We have a long history of using the DASH restoration management platform. After spending the past few years trying to run our business without DASH, it is clearer than ever why it is the market leader. We are so passionate about the property restoration industry, its participants, and their success. Next Gear Solutions has the internal processes and culture of commitment to developing enhanced solutions to help them see real results. My advice is to be prudent in your research. All products in our industry are not created equally!"
The rollout of Next Gear Solutions software to PuroClean's locations is set to begin in January 2022.
