Dropbox has acquired an enterprise communication services known as Clementine – a development that was posted on the company’s page.
Announcing their move on the company blog, the Clementine team wrote, “We’re now excited to announce the next stage of our journey — we’re joining Dropbox. Our mission and passion for workplace collaboration remains the same. Our stage will grow dramatically as Dropbox builds on our technology to engage with its over 400 million users and 100,000 businesses.”
As for what they do, it consists of handling internal communication which includes chat services and conference calls. Of course, this type of communication does not require a phone number and is important given that people are connecting work services to personal devices.
What is also clear is that Dropbox is also boosting its enterprise services by launching an entire suite of products that are helping businesses collaborate on documents and the like. The company has recently announced that more than 100,000 companies have been using its software too.
Apart from that, it has also announced that the company now has more than 400 million registered users apart from redesigning its Android application. Also, it has recently launched a tool that helps users request files from those who are not using Dropbox.
As a result of this acquisition, Clementine will be closing down its services soon. The company found its humble beginnings in 2014.
The free part of the Clementine app will remain active for their current base of customers until the end of August, 2015.
