Salesforce.com Acquires Thinkfuse SaaS Provider
Thinkfuse announced today that they are being acquired by Salesforce.com.
Thinkfuse is a software-as-a-service provider that allows organizations to turn business communications into useful planning and scheduling tools.
While very few details of the acquisition have been disclosed, Thinkfuse will be shutting down by July 25th, and current users will have to export all their data by that time.
The Thinkfuse team commented about the acquisition on their blog today:
“Today, we are excited to share that the Thinkfuse team will be joining salesforce.com, where we’ll advance our mission to promote open communication and transparency in the workplace.”
“To all of our users, thank you for using Thinkfuse! We’ve been on an incredible journey thanks to your comments, feedback, and support. We started Thinkfuse with a simple idea to help teams communicate more effectively. We now have an amazing opportunity to pursue that passion on a much larger scale at salesforce.com – one of the leading companies in the space.”
Thinkfuse was founded by a group of former Google and Microsoft employees, and first launched at TechCrunch Disrupt New York in 2011. The entire company will join Salesforce.com out in Seattle at their headquarters.
