Message from Nubera about TarPipe acquisition and the birth of Cloudwork
“Dear TarPipe user,
You may have missed our previous communication, so I am taking the liberty to contact you again as we had great news to share with you. But first I want to take you through a quick history of what we achieved.
From the beginning…
Since we launched our Beta 2008, we went a long way. We were nominated for numerous awards at startup competitions organized by SXSW, Techcrunch or The Next Web. Then in 2010 we reached the milestone of 1 million posts published from the Tarpipe platform.
Now, thanks to you we are now more than 25,000 tarpipe users and automated over 5 million tasks.
An opportunity that we could not miss
During 2012 we’ve received some interest from the company Nubera and we decided that selling our technology to them was the best step forward in order to extend the benefits of tarpipe to a much broader reach.
A few months down the line, we are proud to announce that tarpipe has been acquired by Nubera, operator of GetApp the #1 independent marketplace for cloud business apps, and is now being used as the foundation of CloudWork a new cloud apps integration service that is officially launching today.
