Salesforce to acquire McLean-based Acumen Solutions
News comes on same day as Slack acquisition
On Dec. 1, the same day it announced that it was acquiring workplace communication service company Slack for $27.7 billion in cash and stock, cloud-services company Salesforce.com Inc. revealed that it’s also acquiring McLean-based professional services firm Acumen Solutions.
San Francisco-based Salesforce has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Acumen Solutions. In a statement that didn’t disclose the financial terms of the acquisition, Salesforce said that Acumen would become part of Salesforce Professional Services. The statement called Acumen “a leading professional services firm with deep Salesforce knowledge and extensive industry expertise across public sector, manufacturing, financial services and more.”
In June, Salesforce closed on its deal to acquire San Francisco cloud and mobile software provider Vlocity for $1.3 billion. In the Acumen statement, Salesforce said that the acquisitions meant that “customers can go digital faster and transform their industry.”
