Salesforce to buy document-editing startup Quip for about $582 million


(Reuters) - Cloud-based software maker Inc <CRM.N> said on Monday it agreed to acquire document-editing startup Quip for about $582 million.


Salesforce has an existing investment in Quip, whose word-processing platform is designed to be used by teams to edit documents or spreadsheets on mobile devices, wearables and desktops.


Quip will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Salesforce once the deal closes.


Quip Chief Executive Bret Taylor, former chief technology officer of Facebook Inc <FB.O>, was appointed to Twitter Inc's <TWTR.N> board last month.
