Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Indianapolis-based software company Formstack LLC has acquired the number one form and survey building application on the Salesforce AppExchange. Financial details were not disclosed, however the company says Toronto-based Fast Forms will now be known as Formstack for Salesforce.

A spokesperson for Formstack tells Inside INdiana Business Fast Forms has eight employees who will continue under the Formstack banner. The company says support and service for both the Fast Forms and existing Salesforce integration offerings from Formstack will continue uninterrupted.

"As the market continues to demand more tools to manage and improve business processes, Formstack will continue to answer back with simple solutions that automate and speed up workflows," said Chris Byers, chief executive officer of Formstack. "Fast Forms has built an outstanding product for the AppExchange, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue building this great product and offer our customers a more complete service as a result of the acquisition."

Fast Forms was founded in Toronto in 2015. In a news release Tuesday, Co-founder Dee Guttikonda said, "We are so excited to join the innovative team at Formstack. We’ve always looked at them as a market leader, and we’re looking forward to contributing to their continued growth by further innovating on the Force.com platform."

The acquisition comes five months after Formstack added Indianapolis-based Octiv Co-founder Dustin Sapp to its team as chief operating officer. Sapp joined Gerry Dick on Inside INdiana Business in May to talk about the company and his new role within it. You can view the interview below:
