GTCR bought GreatCall Inc., an emergency response services provider, for an undisclosed amount. The deal comes after the private equity firm purchased Sage Payment Solutions, a payment processing and services merchant, for $260 million.
GreatCall, headquartered in San Diego, offers health and personal emergency response assistance for senior citizens. More than 800,000 users across the U.S. subscribe to the target’s services. GreatCall also designs hardware for elders to access trained agents with the touch of a button. Trained agents are prepared to dispatch emergency personnel, connect family caregivers and answer questions. The GreatCall deal is expected to close in the third quarter of 2017.
