Cary, N.C.-based Dude Solutions Inc. has acquired Toronto-based Windmill Software, including its flagship senior living operations software, TheWorxHub.

Dude Solutions, a 15-year-old software-as-a-service (SssS) provider specializing in operations management, will now open its first office in Canada as a result of this purchase.

TheWorxHub is an integrated suite of operations service delivery applications being used in more than 650 senior living communities throughout the U.S. and Canada. With this acquisition, Dude Solutions will now be able to provide software support in the areas of housekeeping, room bookings, transportation, inventory, security and information technology.

“Dude Solutions’ goal is to become the undisputable leader in the markets we serve. For senior living, one of the fastest growing market segments in North America, acquiring Windmill Software will position us to become the clear market powerhouse offering a robust suite of facilities and operations software to senior living,” said Kent Hudson, CEO of Dude Solutions, in a press statement. “Combining TheWorxHub’s best-in-class products and thought leadership with our industry-leading delivery, support and long-standing commitment to product development and innovation is a win-win for senior living operations professionals and the organizations and clients they serve.”

Jo-Anne Kempe, Windmill Software’s president and founder, added: “I’m excited about the next phase of growth for the combined organization as this acquisition provides our team the scale and support needed to significantly increase our market penetration. There is a great cultural fit as Dude Solutions echoes our commitment to helping create successful senior living communities through powerful operations solutions.”
