SAN FRANCISCO and JACKSONVILLE, FL, June 29, 2021 – Luminate Capital Partners, a private equity firm investing in enterprise software companies, today announced the sale of AutoQuotes, the leader in configure-price-quote (CPQ) and supply chain software for the foodservice equipment and supplies industry, to TA Associates. The company will become part of Revalize, a new cloud-software platform for manufacturers formed by TA.
Luminate acquired AutoQuotes in 2018 from the founding team. Since Luminate’s investment, AutoQuotes has seen strong growth, adding a world class management team and significantly expanding its product suite. In 2020, AutoQuotes acquired Axonom, a visual configuration platform for B2B finished products.

“AutoQuotes is a mission critical provider to its customers and has experienced strong performance since our initial investment,” said Hollie Haynes, Managing Partner at Luminate. “The company has done a great job of continually developing new products for its existing customer base, in addition to entering adjacent verticals,” noted Mark Haidet, who has served as chairman of AutoQuotes since the Luminate investment.
