File-sharing and syncing service Box.net (previously covered on WWD) yesterday announced that it plans to acquire Increo Solutions, the developers behind document embedding service Embedit.in and feedback app Backboard, tools that we’ve also written about previously.
Over time, this acquisition should improve the ways that you can view, share and collaborate on documents within Box.net, as the Increo Solutions tools become integrated into the service. Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box.net, said, “We really like what Increo has accomplished with their technology, which supports our goal of providing Box.net customers with a better way to share and work with documents and content in the cloud.”
However, for now, the Increo Solutions products remain standalone, and users can continue to work with the products and get technical support as before, according to this handy FAQ about the acquisition for current Increo customers.
Is this acquisition good news for Box.net customers?
