Appfire’s portfolio of 60+ apps are used by thousands of enterprises to enhance collaboration tools like Atlassian’s Jira Software and Confluence.

Appfire will use the outside capital to expand the company’s cloud-based product offerings and support strategic acquisitions of complementary apps.

Appfire’s Bob Swift, Feed Three, and Wittified brand apps help teams at companies like Google, Amazon, and Starbucks streamline product development through improved collaboration, security, reporting, and automation.

“Since starting Appfire, our founding team’s vision has been to grow the company into a leading provider of apps that enable product teams to do their best work,” said Appfire co-founder and CEO Randall Ward.
