Quip + Salesforce = Big News

Update (August 26, 2016): I’m excited to announce that Salesforce has closed its acquisition of Quip! We’re thrilled to be a part of the Salesforce family.

We have some big news to share — Salesforce has agreed to acquire Quip!

We’re inspired by the possibilities ahead of us. As part of Salesforce, we will be able to expand our service more quickly and reach millions of people all over the world — which has been our mission since day one. And, we’ll be able to extend the Salesforce Customer Success Platform in powerful new ways with our next-generation productivity capabilities. The possibilities of mixing data, content and communication are amazing.

A NEW WAY TO WORK

Salesforce and Quip share the same philosophy about software: it should be in the cloud, built for the mobile era, and be inherently social. Salesforce pioneered the shift to enterprise cloud computing—and Quip has been working since 2012 to reimagine a productivity platform for teams that allows them to be more connected, more collaborative and get more work done.

CULTURAL GOODNESS, TOO!

Salesforce is a company built around customer success, and that customer-first culture mirrors our view of customer love.

Beyond the business opportunity, we’re personally excited to join Salesforce, given the company's dedication to giving back to the community with its 1-1-1 Model of integrated corporate philanthropy and its efforts around equality. At Quip, we care deeply about giving back and we look forward to being part of a company that considers the community a key stakeholder.

JUST THE BEGINNING, REALLY

We’re committed to growing and expanding Quip's productivity platform as part of Salesforce. If you’re a Quip customer, please know that we’ll continue to provide you with the exceptional service and extraordinary products you’ve come to expect from us, and once the transaction closes, we'll do so as part of the world’s #1 CRM company. If you’re not yet a customer, sign your team up today!
