Foundation Software, LLC Acquires Construction Safety Software Provider Harness

Strongsville, OH and Toronto, ON, CAFoundation Software announced today the acquisition of construction safety software provider, Harness Software. With this acquisition, Foundation adds a much-asked-for piece to their ever-growing software platform.

Creators of The Harness Safety App, Harness offers easy-to-use safety tools for specialty contractors, including those in the roofing, electrical and mechanical trades. With Harness, contractors can easily track toolbox talks, inspections, training, certifications and more — increasing jobsite safety and allowing for better management of company health and safety programs.

“When we started Harness Software, our goal was to help as many contractors as possible to improve their health and safety programs,” said Tom Whitaker, CEO of Harness Software. “By joining with a large, successful company like Foundation Software, we’re able to expand our reach to better achieve this goal.”

Harness will join Foundation’s expanding construction management platform, which currently features accounting, project management, estimating and takeoff software for specialty contractors, and a construction-specific payroll service.

Mike Ode, CEO of Foundation Software, elaborated on what the addition of Harness to Foundation means for the industry as a whole.

“We’re thrilled to add Harness to our family of companies,” Ode said. “In talking with contractors over the years, a dedicated safety application was always one of the top-requested features. With Harness, we’re able to offer our customers another industry-specific tool to help run their business.”

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed. Massumi + Consoli LLP served as legal advisor to Foundation Software.
