BirdDogHR Secures Investment by Providence Strategic Growth and Joins Arcoro

PSG invests in hypergrowth HR platform to extend the BirdDogHR leadership position in talent management. BirdDogHR serves as a cornerstone company for Arcoro.

DES MOINES, Iowa – August 15, 2018 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries, has received investment by Providence Strategic Growth Capital Partners L.L.C. (PSG), an affiliate of Providence Equity Partners L.L.C. Todd Skokan remains the President and CEO of BirdDogHR. He, the BirdDogHR leadership team and all BirdDogHR employees will continue to grow the business, serve customers and deliver BirdDogHR integrated talent management software and services.

As a part of the overall platform strategy, PSG has created Arcoro. Arcoro is the proven human capital management (HCM) software and services provider for high consequence industries and features cornerstone companies BirdDogHR and sister company, ExakTime. ExakTime is a mobile, cloud-based solution for time and attendance tracking known for its ease and seamless integration with payroll. Both companies will maintain their company names and brands but will now be known as part of the Arcoro family of human capital management solutions.

The market is vehement for easy-to-use, cloud-based software. Both BirdDogHR and ExakTime are growing quickly and are leaders in their focus areas of integrated talent management and time and attendance respectively. With over 8,000 customers in high consequence industries, such as construction, manufacturing, energy and home health care, both companies understand and have established solutions to help companies maximize workforce performance and efficiencies, build ROI and limit the risk associated with human capital management. PSG, BirdDogHR and ExakTime company leaders see synergies in joining forces as Arcoro because customers from both companies can leverage new capabilities.

McGill Restoration, a building restoration business based in Omaha, Nebraska, utilizes both ExakTime’s and BirdDogHR’s services for their human capital management. “We’re happy that ExakTime and BirdDogHR are now part of the Arcoro group, because they work really well together,” says Blake Berke, CFO at McGill Restoration. “We rely heavily on both solutions to streamline our recruiting, hiring, employee tracking and payroll processes.” Manager of Human Resources Kim Roberts adds, “When I hire someone through BirdDogHR I immediately onboard them into ExakTime. They go hand in hand. It’s a smooth process. Having the web-based reporting and custom reports from both systems at my fingertips is also invaluable.”

“This growth equity investment is a great testament to the strength of our team and the success of our customers. We are excited to join forces with PSG to expedite product innovation and ensure customer satisfaction. With this new investment in the company, the future is exciting at BirdDogHR and strong momentum will continue,” said Todd Skokan, President and CEO of BirdDogHR.

“BirdDogHR has had impressive success bringing enterprise grade talent management and compliance solutions to the high consequence industries where they matter most. The Company’s product suite helps its customers effectively nurture their workforces using industry-specific best practices. We, at PSG, are thrilled to partner with Todd and his team, and welcome them to the Arcoro family,” said Gopi Vaddi, PSG Managing Director.
