Our original founders, George and Glenn Slay were HVAC contractors and entrepreneurs. As HVAC contractors, George & Glenn were out in the field servicing customers constantly. They felt that there could be a better way to organize their office and field operations. Seeking a solution, the Slay brothers started the process of creating software that would help them manage their expanding business.
