Dropbox acquires Clementine to Enhance Enterprise Services
FREMONT, CA: Driven by the urge to stay ahead in the cut-throat Tech market, Dropbox acquires Clementine Labs, a wireless communications solution provider, to boost its portfolio by offering a technology that engages with their users and businesses, reports Jordan Novet for VentureBeat.
Clementine offers an application that enables employees to make voice calls and exchange messages with one another within an enterprise environment. This additional functionality will provide a competitive edge over its peers including Box and Google Drive. The Clementine service will be shutting down, mentions the company’s blog. The free portions of the app will remain active for current users until August 31, 2015.
Clementine’s offering facilitates users with a call and chat at work without using their personal numbers. A dedicated app for texting with Clementine and non-clementine users ensures privacy. It separates social texting from work and keeps business communication secure. Clementine’s directory is connected and crowdsourced so that users can have flexibility in reaching their company directory. This service will meet the growing demands of Bring your own devices (BYOD) in corporate sector.
