Salesforce acquires Collaborative Text Editor StypiBy: Shawn Hess - May 2, 2012
We’ve learned today that Stypi will be acquired by Salesforce.com, an enterprise cloud computing company. Their goal is helping businesses communicate and collaborate with customers in a safe and easy way. Stypi is a company that can help Salesforce add to their already rich portfolio of enterprise communications solutions.
Stypi specializes in online collaboration in source code editing, website copy, and a number of other situations that require online solutions to the editing process. Essentially they are a company founded on the concept of facilitating productive and simple online collaborations.
Yesterday, in their blog post, co-founder Jason Chen and Byron Milligan explained a little about the acquisition and how in Salesforce, they have found a like-minded ally. The Palo Alto startup also expressed their enthusiasm for joining up with Sales force.
Here’s what Jason Chen and Byron Milligan had to say about the acquisition:
“We’ve found that they share our vision for collaboration and all of its possibilities and together we’ll be able to create even more amazing collaboration solutions.”
“We’re super excited about this new leg in our journey, and can’t wait to share these steps with you.”
“Most importantly, Stypi will continue to be the Stypi you know. Our users will continue to have access to this great service, community, and innovation.”
So the great thing about the acquisition is their products will still be available to people who have enjoyed and taken advantage of their services in the past. Salesforce has not yet commented on the acquisition.
