Montreal-based Infoactive acquired by Tableau

Tableau

Infographic startup Infoactive announced this week that it has been acquired by Seattle-based business intelligence and analytics company, Tableau. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The FounderFuel alumnus had this to say about the acquisition:

    When we founded Infoactive, our goal was to blend our passion for data and design to help people make sense of information. We’ve always admired Tableau’s mission to help people see and understand data; now we’re working together to pursue our vision on a larger scale.

    At Tableau, we’ll have the opportunity to make a bigger impact in the world of data and design. We’re excited to be a part of the development team and will be leveraging our experience building great mobile and cloud sharing products.

Infoactive noted that while it will be winding down operations over the coming months, the company intends to keep all existing infographics available online until 2020. Existing customers will also be able to use Infoactive on their current plans until the end of the month, however the company will no longer accept new user signups or subscriptions.

For its part, Tableau has set up a welcome page for Infoactive users with links to free alternative data visualization tools.
