Aspire Software, a cloud-based business management SaaS solution for landscape and construction companies, announced it will be acquired by industry-leading ServiceTitan.
The deal is ServiceTitan’s second in the past year, preceded by its acquisition of ServicePro. The $9.5 billion company helps empower over 7,500 home and commercial service trade businesses, and is backed by investors such as Bessemer Venture Partners, ICONIQ Growth, and Tiger Global Management.
“We’re thrilled to join forces with the ServiceTitan team to revolutionize the landscaping industry with best-in-class software,” commented Mark Tipton, CEO and co-founder of Aspire. “ServiceTitan has an amazing track record building the most successful software business in the trades. With their support, we’ll be able to invest more than ever before into product development, customer support, and growth. As a result, we’ll dramatically accelerate our mission of making contractors successful.”
Chesterfield, Missouri-based Aspire Software was founded in 2014 by Tipton and Kevin Kehoe. Since its origin, the company has grown to support hundreds of commercial landscapers in executing nearly $4 billion in annual transactions. Through the deal, both Aspire and ServiceTitan customers can expect growing product enhancements and improved customer service.
The solution has been named on of America’s Fastest Growing Companies by the Financial Times, as well as one of St. Louis’ 10 fastest growing companies by the St. Louis Business Journal.
“Both Aspire and ServiceTitan were born out of a desire to improve the lives of contractors who work tirelessly to serve their communities, but who have historically been underserved by technology,” said Ara Mahdessian, CEO and co-founder of ServiceTitan. “Mark and his team at Aspire have more than 500 years of combined experience in the commercial landscaping industry. Just like we built ServiceTitan to solve the problems our fathers faced, it’s that first-hand industry knowledge that has enabled Aspire to build the most powerful software in the industry with the highest customer satisfaction.”
