Salesforce Snaffles Stypi Collaborative Text Editing Platform

Stypi, the developer of a real-time online text editor with collaborative facilities, has announced that it has been acquired by Salesforce.

The firm broke the news on its blog, assuring existing users of Stypi that it will continue to be the service they are familiar with. Access to the platform, and interaction with the community, won't be changed by the move.

The blog post read: "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."

So there you have it, the Stypi team will be working on further collaboration solutions for Salesforce, but the nature of those solutions isn't mentioned.

Stypi allows users to share documents with others via email, and account holders can make private documents to be shared with only those who they trust, or are working with.
