Appfire Sells Confluence App to Fellow Atlassian Vendor and Donates 100% of Sale to Charity
BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2019--
Appfire announced today that the company sold one of its Confluence apps to resolution, a Germany-based developer of Atlassian apps. All proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity, keeping in line with Appfire’s commitment to corporate philanthropy.
Previously under Appfire’s Wittified brand of Atlassian apps, User Limit Manager for Confluence helps teams keep license costs down by viewing user login information and managing inactive users. The move from Appfire to resolution places the app among similar tools and complements resolution’s existing line of enterprise user management products on the Atlassian Marketplace.
“While we were the first mover in this space, we recognize that this app benefits an underserved market. resolution has been building out a series of products that enhance user management within Atlassian tools, and they have the domain knowledge to unlock the full value of this unique market while providing amazing service,” Appfire CEO and co-founder Randall Ward said.
“Our distinct specialty is enterprise user management. With proven experience and trusted software in that field, our team will be able to expand the feature set of User Limit Manager and bring increased value to the existing and future customer base,” resolution CEO and founder Christian Reichert said. “Furthermore, our customers from a similar app, User Deactivator for Jira, will soon have access to essentially the same feature set across two major Atlassian platforms.”
The team at resolution also pitched the idea for the sale’s earnings to be donated, according to both companies. Funds from the sale will go toward the Appfire Foundation to be distributed among select nonprofit charities.
“This change is really a testament to the Atlassian partner ecosystem,” Ward added. “It’s two partners working together to better serve the whole market by allowing a stronger solution to emerge.”
App customers will not experience any immediate changes due to the sale but can expect improvements to the app in the future.
