BOSTON & SEATTLE & SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Appfire, a global provider of Atlassian software and enterprise services and Atlassian’s largest commercial add-on vendor, today announced that they have reached a definitive agreement for Appfire to acquire Wittified – a Seattle-based software company, and manufacturer of 19 popular Atlassian add-ons.
The Wittified team will remain fully dedicated to their current product line as members of the Appfire family, and co-founder Daniel Wester will remain the visionary behind their incredible tools.
Thanks to a powerful collection of Wittified-brand add-ons that enable the delegation of core administrative tasks to non-admins, many enterprise customers are now better able to scale their global Atlassian deployments.
"By combining the Wittified customer base with that of Appfire’s existing Bob Swift product line, Appfire products are now used by 1 out of every 5 Atlassian customers worldwide." said Randall Ward, co-founder and CEO at Appfire. "We’ve been working with Atlassian products for over a decade, and we have yet to see an add-on manufacturer selflessly contribute as much back to the developer program as Daniel Wester. It speaks volumes about his values and that of the entire Wittified team."
"We’re excited to join forces with Appfire" said Daniel Wester, co-founder of Wittified. "This partnership will allow the Wittified brand to continue providing world-class service to our existing customers while making larger investments in new and innovative products. It also enables us to serve a larger segment of customers worldwide."
