The company's first product was a Windows-based program designed specifically for the family pest control business of Richard Deering. After selling his lawn and pest control business, Deering and his family began to focus on Service Pro.net, which has evolved into web-based programs with more than 1,400 databases between its two flagship products, ServSuite and ServBasic, the company said. The company, which started with less than ten employees, now employs nearly 100, Service Pro said.

Service Pro.net recently introduced ServSuite Mobiel for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
