Calendly, a modern automated scheduling software for managing and scheduling meetings on the go, has acquired the recruiting operations company Prelude.
Nigerian-born Tope Awotona, the founder and CEO of Calendly says that he is thrilled to share that Calendly has acquired the recruiting operations platform Prelude.
“What makes this acquisition especially exciting is that it accelerates our vision to holistically solve external scheduling challenges for individuals and teams in companies of all sizes, from SMB to enterprise,” Tope says.
Tope continues to say that “Prelude and Calendly’s shared vision for the future is to provide one integrated solution for recruiting teams. In the near term, the Prelude name and products will continue as they are. Any future changes will be communicated to customers in advance.
In the long term, we’ll merge Prelude into Calendly to provide a unified experience for our customers — a single scheduling platform for multiple departments within the organization. It’s what I set out to do when I first founded Calendly — to listen deeply to customers about how we could best serve them, and build solutions for real people who are just trying to do good work. It’s become a key pillar of how we operate, and I look forward to collaborating with Prelude through that same strong customer-focused lens.”
