Australia-headquartered software company Atlassian, the maker of team-work focused software such as Trello, has entered a deal to acquire Slack-application creator Halp, the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.
Halp’s main product is an application that runs on team-communication platform Slack, allowing the creation of “tickets” to track workflow progress. It can also be integrated with Microsoft Teams, Zendesk and another Atlassian’s product, Jira.
Halp said in a separate blog post it would be able to use Nasdaq-listed Atlassian’s resources to expand its product and improve its Jira and Confluence integration.
When contacted, Atlassian declined to comment on the deal size.
Brad Armstrong, vice president of business development and corporate development at Slack, said in the blog post that his company supported the move by its strategic partner Atlassian.
“With its messaging-first approach to support ticketing, Halp is an outstanding tool for any team already collaborating in Slack channels. We see enormous opportunities in building this business together with Atlassian.”
Halp had previously raised $2.7 million from a pre-seed and two seed rounds, with investors including Matchstick Ventures and eonCapital, according to data from Crunchbase.
Last month, Atlassian reported a net loss of $158.8 million for the quarter ended 31 March, narrowing from a loss of $202.8 million in the year-ago quarter, on marking its exchangeable senior notes and related calls to fair value; revenue for the quarter increased 33 percent on-year to $244.2 million.
