Is Microsoft about to accumulate a cell email startup?
A deleted draft submit on the Official Microsoft Weblog, accidentally distributed via an RSS feed, has a url that concludes with the string, “/microsoft-acquires-acompli/” — an obvious reference to the cell email startup Acompli.
Neither firm is commenting on the obvious slip-up, so the standing of any negotiations or deal between the firms isn’t clear, however Microsoft’s curiosity in Acompli would make sense given the app’s Trade integration together with its deal with enterprise adoption and fast productiveness instruments for cell employees.
Based mostly in San Francisco, Acompli is venture-backed, having raised $7.3 million in Collection A funding from Redpoint Ventures and others, as noted by TechCrunch.
The app’s deal with productiveness throughout work and private lives, as proven in the video above, meshes with Microsoft’s route below CEO Satya Nadella. The app is on the market for Android and iOS, so about the solely factor lacking is Home windows.
