Right Networks Acquires Rootworks

Cloud-based technology solutions provider Right Networks has acquired firm-improvement organization Rootworks.

Rootworks will continue to operate as an independent line of business within Right Networks, giving the latter’s accounting firm customers the option of subscribing to Rootworks’ Modern Firm® suite of front-office tools and resources for management, organization and execution.

“In an era marked by profound change and a new normal, the accounting profession needs focused, dedicated guidance and support now more than ever, so this merger could not have been better timed,” says Darren Root, the co-founder of Rootworks, who will stay on to serve as Rootworks GM and Right Networks VP of Market Strategy. “Firms will greatly benefit from the combined strengths of both companies, including Right Networks’ unparalleled expertise in cloud-enabled technology solutions and Rootworks’ deep insight into firm operations and proven track record with targeted education and coaching – not to mention the proven leadership across both companies.”

“Firms need the business context, the ‘why and how,’ in order to adapt and move forward,” adds Joel Hughes, CEO of Right Networks. “Rootworks has pioneered and perfected a repeatable business model for The Modern Firm, supported by education and dedicated coaching via a technology platform and peer community that fosters success. Firms owners need help. Right Networks with Rootworks can deliver the level of help they require.”
