McKinney, Texas-based PestRoutes, an industry business management software provider, has taken an equity investment from Mainsail Partners, a growth equity firm that invests in fast-growing software companies. The company will use the capital to accelerate development of its cloud-based, mobile-friendly software platform. Additionally, the company will further invest in its customer service operations.
“This is an exciting moment in our company’s history,” says Jared Green, founder and CEO of PestRoutes. “We are proud to have built a product that makes such a big impact on our users’ daily lives. But we feel like we have just scratched the surface on the value we can provide with this platform, and recognize that the opportunities in front of us are outpacing our resources. The time is right to bring on a partner who can help us move fast. Mainsail has not only demonstrated they have the experience and resources to help us scale the company, but fit very well culturally with the values which are foundational to our continued success.”
“This is another case where a smart and resourceful entrepreneur created a solution to solve a very specific business problem,” says Stephanie Gaufin, Vice President at Mainsail Partners. “Jared was his own first user as the sales manager in a pest control company, which we have found tends to result in a very customer-centric approach to product development and top-tier customer service. PestRoutes is well positioned as an innovator in a growing and resilient market and we are excited to partner with the team to scale the company.”
