This deal could make it easier for people to manage their email using their smartphones and tablets.
Microsoft has now announced that it is purchasing Accompli, which is an email management mobile app, in a deal that has now been reported to be worth over $200 million.
The deal could potentially give Microsoft a boost in making email easier to manage over mobile devices.
This will give Microsoft the chance to make it easier for users to manage their email over smartphones and tablets that are based on Android or iOS. According to the vice president of Microsoft, Rajesh Jha, when discussing this mobile app in a blog post, “In a world where more than half of email messages are first read on a mobile device, it’s essential to give people fantastic email experiences wherever they go.”
The company feels that this mobile app provides an innovative way to interact with what is in an inbox.
Jha also added that “The Accompli team is passionate about this quest. Their app provides innovative ways to focus on what’s important in your inbox, to schedule meetings, and work with attachments and files.” Within the blog and at the time of the writing of this review, there was no official announcement with regards to the price of the purchase, but a number of reports were made by the media to suggest the aforementioned approximate total.
Javier Solerto of Accompli explained in his own blog that the mobile application is going to become a component of the overall strategy that Microsoft is putting into place in order to reinvent the way that people view productivity in an era of mobile devices.
Solerto went on to say that their company began only a year and a half ago and their team moved forward to create a product that would help to make email better when used through a mobile app. He added that the journey of that team has now taken a leap forward by joining a much larger organization in a way that will allow the talent, tech, and market reach to “take the vision of Acompli to hundreds of millions of mobile users across the world.”
