Salesforce announced it has completed its acquisition of Slack Technologies.
Marc Benioff, Chair and CEO of Salesforce, said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have Slack as part of the Salesforce family, combining CRM and the trailblazing digital platform for the work anywhere world. Together we’ll define the future of enterprise software, creating the digital HQ that enables every organization to deliver customer and employee success from anywhere.”
Bret Taylor, President and Chief Operating Officer of Salesforce, said, “We’ve learned over the past year that the workplace isn’t snapping back to the way it was. Together, Slack and Salesforce Customer 360 will give every company in the world a single source of truth for their business and a single platform for connecting employees, customers, and partners with each other and the apps they use every day.”
Stewart Butterfield, Slack CEO and Co-Founder, said, “We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to rethink and reshape how and where we work. Salesforce and Slack are uniquely positioned to lead this historic shift to a digital-first world. I could not be more excited for what’s to come.”
