Decade Software is based in Fresno California, and was founded in 1986. Decade provides SaaS environmental health and safety software, and sells primarily into the State and County government space. The solution is focused on meeting the needs of inspectors such as those monitoring restaurants, bars, pools, water supplies, and other public and private facilities that are subject to health inspection and regulation. Although Decade has customers across the US and elsewhere, most notable is that 55 of the 58 counties in California are Decade customers. Decade was acquired by Accela, Inc. based in San Ramon, CA, a leader in civic solutions for governmental agencies of all sizes, in a highly strategic deal that will allow Decade to expand its reach into new markets.
One thing we noticed was that when we hired Corum to represent us, the buyers took us a lot more seriously. They knew that if they didn’t buy us, someone else would, and that’s a big deal in creating an urgency for them to act.
