Salesforce has completed its $27.7 billion acquisition of Slack Technologies.
Salesforce said the combination of Salesforce and Slack will deliver the “Slack-first Customer 360,” which ensures that businesses have access to a single source of truth and also a single platform that connects employees, customers and partners to their everyday applications.
The deal will ensure Slack continues to operate under the Slack brand and will continue to be led by CEO and co-founder Stewart Butterfield.
Commenting on the deal, Marc Benioff, CEO of Slack, said, “We couldn’t be more excited to have Slack as part of the Salesforce family, combining the #1 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.”
