CakeSystems logo

As of August 1, 2016 Earth Advantage sold the CakeSystems SaaS software platform, to Renovate America, a leading provider of financing for home energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements. While ownership has changed hands, service to our existing customers will persist.

The acquisition of CakeSystems allows Earth Advantage to continue providing services in the market as Renovate America’s exclusive value-added reseller partner.  As the new owners, Renovate America will be responsible for behind-the-scenes product enhancement and software hosting, which will allow us at Earth Advantage to focus on customer service and customer development.
