Salesforce.com has announced the acquisition of collaboration company Stypi.
The Y Combinator-backed start-up provides a real-time collaborative text editor. Users can create documents in the programme which can be changed by multiple users simultaneously via exchanging a URL.
In a statement on its blog, Stypi said: “We started building Stypi with the vision to make it as easy as possible to collaborate with others online – whether it be for editing source code, tweaking website copy, or writing a novel. As Stypi has grown, we’ve seen each of these use cases and many more unexpected ones.
“Today, we are thrilled to announce that we are joining Salesforce.com. 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.”
According to the firm, Stypi users will continue to have access to the platform following the acquisition.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
