Salesforce has signed a definitive agreement to acquire HeyWire. HeyWire, an enterprise mobile messaging company. In 2008, HeyWire launched the world’s first implementation of ‘mobile cloud messaging’. Instead of being associated with a physical mobile device, an SMS message could be associated with the identity of the individual (via the phone number), thus allowing text messages to be sent and received from any device, anywhere and at any time.
