Salesforce Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire Vlocity

A Message from David Schmaier, CEO & Founder, Vlocity


I am thrilled to share that today Salesforce has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Vlocity.

Upon the close of the transaction, Vlocity – this wonderful company that we, as a team, have created, built, and grown into a transformational solution for six of the most important industries in the enterprise – will become part of Salesforce.

Because every organization, including the world’s largest customer-centric corporations and industries, must digitally transform, it is more important than ever for our customers to have products that speak the language of their industries.

Our deep expertise in vertical industries enables organizations to digitally transform while delivering seamless, industry-specific processes and data models across any channel, helping to increase sales, service and marketing agility, operational efficiency, digital adoption and simplicity.

There are so many of you to thank.

First, our customers deserve an abundance of gratitude.  These innovators, pioneers, and leaders have adopted Vlocity across the globe to transform their companies. We look forward to the road ahead, and we hope that you do, too.

Our gratitude also goes out to our partners. Without the support, investment, shared vision, and goals of customer success across our partner ecosystem, we could not have achieved so much so fast. Our global systems integration partners (GSIs) and our independent software partners (ISVs) have been critically important ingredients in our growth and our delivery success, and we sincerely thank each and every one of you.

Congratulations and thank you to my fellow Vlocity colleagues who contribute every day to our customers’ success – from our talented product, engineering, UX, QA and documentation organizations – to our customer success organization, expert services, program architects, support, training and enablement – to our customer operations, employee success, finance, accounting, and IT teams – and to our amazing sales, marketing, strategy and alliances organizations. The technology innovation we have created is remarkable – together we have delivered 24 cloud software releases across our six industries in less than six years. All of you at Vlocity are heroes, fulfilling our important mission and keeping us laser-focused on our customers.

With today’s news, the voice of the customer just magnified. The best customer experiences are industry-specific. Together, our customers, our partners and our employees have accomplished so much. I am thrilled about our future with Salesforce.
