Just a year ago, Dude Solutions, best known for its SchoolDude product suite, raised $100 million. Today, the Cary-based firm disclosed an acquisition – the buying of Canada-based Windmill Software and its “TheWorxHub,” a senior living solution.

Dude providers a variety of software-as-a-service (SAAS) solutions. Warburg Pincus made the investment in Dude last February.

As part of the deal, Dude will open an office in Toronto, where Windmill Software is based.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

“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 announcing the deal.

“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.”

TheWorxHub is already used by more than 650 senior living centers across Canada and the U.S.

“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,” said Jo-Anne Kempe, Windmill Software’s president and founder. “There is a great cultural fit as Dude Solutions echoes our commitment to helping create successful senior living communities through powerful operations solutions.”
