Shop-Ware adds Nikhil Sachdev to its Board along with raising $15m Series A funding led by Insight Partners

– USA, CA –  Shop-Ware, the automotive aftermarket’s premier cloud-based shop management software for independent repair shops, today announced that it has secured $15M in series A funding, led by Insight Partners, to support the continued growth, accelerate its innovation, and allow for a more aggressive go-to-market.

Concurrent with the financing, Nikhil Sachdev, Managing Director at Insight Partners, is joining the Shop-Ware’s Board of Directors.

“With Shop-Ware, repair shop owners and technicians can maximize operational efficiencies and customer interaction using the company’s cloud-based management solution,” said Nikhil Sachdev, Managing Director at Insight Partners. “We are excited to partner with Shop-Ware to further scale their best-in-class product and capitalize on this growing market opportunity.”

Carolyn Coquillette founded Shop-Ware out of her own repair shop in San Francisco to provide the transparency and sophistication that customers needed and that other systems lacked.

Shop-Ware handles everything for the next generation of auto repair, from digital customer communication to paperless shop operations, with an expansive product offering designed to reduce or remove the human effort needed to run the business.

“Repair shops have to adapt quickly to the increased complexity of the cars they service. Shop-Ware brings automated, customized solutions to allow shops to thrive in business and inspire their customers,” said founder and CEO, Carolyn Coquillette. “Our team is proud to serve the community of hard-working, intelligent professionals that make auto repair possible, and Insight Partners shares our passion for delivering best-in-class products and services that this industry needs to transform.”

The investment will be used to expand Shop-Ware’s engineering, support, and sales teams, to ramp the number of repair shops adopting the platform, and speeding their onboarding period.
