NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Signpost, a leading marketing and communications software solution for home service providers, has announced the closing of its acquisition of Securus Contact Systems, an innovative live chat and receptionist service platform, based in Portland, Oregon. The combination enables contractors to provide an exceptional, "always on" experience to its clients throughout the sales cycle and customer experience.
"The acquisition of Securus immediately solves a need for our core clients," said Signpost CEO George Bilbrey.
