Today we are thrilled to announce that we’ve signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Salesforce, the global CRM leader. This marks an incredible milestone in the ClickSoftware journey, and is a strong testament to the dedication of many Clickers, past and present, to whom I am very grateful.
Our mission has been clear since day one: to be the global leader in field service management and deliver significant value to our customers, which we have achieved by combining leading-edge technology with unparalleled industry experience. With today’s announcement, I believe we can go from strength to strength. Becoming part of Salesforce once the transaction closes will provide a tremendous opportunity for us to innovate faster and make Field Service Management an even more critical and differentiated part of Salesforce’s strategy and business. By joining Salesforce, we will be able to further power mission-critical applications for global service leaders like Bosch, Deutsche Telekom, National Grid, PG&E and Unisys as well as offer a wider range of capabilities, and deliver improved efficiency, effectiveness and customer experiences to an even broader global audience.
The growing demand for Field Service Management solutions has been one factor in our incredible growth, but it’s our people who have helped us successfully deliver against our goals, and led to our market leadership being widely recognized by analysts. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Clickers around the world, and also our customers and partners in the Click community. We hope you will be able to celebrate this important milestone with us at our upcoming User Conference.
