Finnish Flowdock, a real-time social collaboration hub, has been acquired by Boulder Colorado-based Rally Software. Rally Software provides cloud-based solutions for managing Agile software development. Acquisition adds Rally Software’s first international R&D site in Helsinki. The financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed. In 2011 Flowdock received 650000 dollar seed funding from a group of investors (helsinkibusinesshub.fi/article/flowdock).
With more than 35 integrations, Flowdock is an information aggregator that brings together activity from project management tools, version control systems, operations monitoring and customer feedback channels. After the acquisition Flowdock will continue to stay as an independent product, but will be integrated more closely with AgileZen, Rally Software’s project management app.
