SaaS Unicorn Freshworks Acquires Pune Based Cloud Platform ‘Flint’
SaaS unicorn Freshworks has acquired Pune-based cloud platform Flint for an undisclosed amount.
Freshworks said that this acquisition will strengthen its IT service management (ITSM) and IT operations management (ITOM) capacity.
Founded by Ankur Gakkhar and Abhishek Pande in 2013, Flint offers an enterprise-grade IT operations system and an intuitively designed dashboard.
Talking about this acquisition, Prakash Ramamurthy, CPO at Freshworks, said,
“IT automation is vital to help accelerate the transition to a remote workforce and resolve service issues faster. With the addition of Flint’s intelligent automation, Freshworks takes the legwork out of tedious, repeatable tasks so IT teams can focus on high impact work while providing an exceptional employee experience.”
Founded by Girish Mathrubootham and Shan Krishnasamy in 2010, Freshworks (previously called Freshdesk) has more than 150K clients across the world and is now looking for an IPO.
