August 4, 2008 – Real Green Systems of Walled Lake, Mich., announces the acquisition of Practical Solutions, Inc., of Columbus, Ohio.
Real Green Systems is the leading creator of software systems for the lawn care and pest control industries. Thousands of companies, including all major lawn care franchises, use Real Green’s Lawn and Pest Assistant III software to run their businesses. Practical Solutions was Real Green’s top competitor, and this acquisition will enable Real Green to further integrate the service industry to better assist customers with all their software needs.
The acquisition came about due to the retirement of Practical Solutions owner Maris Franke, who served the Green Industry for more than 26 years with innovative software solutions, including its very successful software package “The Service Solution,” which was used by numerous companies throughout the US, Canada, and Australia.
Real Green wishes Franke well and is committed to positively integrating his business into the Real Green family and serving his company’s customers with the same high level of service and support that is their hallmark. Real Green Systems will continue to support Service Solution software for the next several months as user’s transition to Lawn & Pest Assistant.
“We are very excited to add Practical Solutions to our Real Green line of top-quality products. We believe that this partnership will further strengthen the Real Green product line and help us continue to provide our customers with the absolute finest service solutions in the industry,” said Joe Kucik, President of Real Green Systems.
Real Green Systems, along with the Lawn & Pest Assistant III software, provide the automated power that companies need to run a successful lawn care, lawn maintenance, pest control or any other service industry business. It’s simply the best in the business, offering service professionals the most comprehensive list of software and marketing tools available in the industry today.
Real Green has been in business since 1984 and currently has customers throughout the US, Canada and the UK. Real Green Systems customers vary from the sole proprietor to the national companies with multiple locations.
