Today, we announced the acquisition of Podio, an innovative collaborative work platform that empowers teams to work the way they want to work.
What’s Podio, you ask?
Podio enables small and medium-sized businesses and teams within larger organizations to manage all types of business processes and associated workflows using purpose-built apps and configurable workspaces. With Podio, teams can also modify apps or create their own, enabling workgroups to tailor their workflows and collaboration activities to their projects and the way they want to work.
Podio also integrates easily with traditional business solutions, plus data storage, online collaboration and content tools, including Dropbox, Box, Google Apps, Google Docs, Google Alerts, Evernote, Zendesk, FreshBooks, Instapaper and Campaign Monitor.
What does Podio bring to Citrix?
We’re very excited to have Podio join the Citrix team. It’s a natural fit with our collaboration line of business. Our cloud-based services power today’s way of working – enabling people to connect, share and collaborate regardless of location or device. Podio adds a collaborative work platform, a robust, free app market and the means to modify or create apps to support contemporary workflows. Along with this wonderful technology, Podio brings to Citrix a talented team whose values and passion for improving the way work is done in the cloud era line up perfectly with ours.
Plus, they have an office in Copenhagen that we can visit!
We’ll be sharing more about the Podio team in the days to come. We’ll also be revealing more of our plans for Podio at Citrix Synergy™ San Francisco, May 9–11, 2012.
