Citrix has acquired cloud-based collaboration specialist Podio in an effort to strengthen its GoTo cloud services.
The company said that it would be taking in Podio and its services as part of a collaboration platform for Citrix's own enterprise services.
Citrix hopes to implement the platform with its GotMeeting service.
Based in Copenhagen, Podio offers a web-based collaboration platform which allows users to create and manage collaboration networks and create custom workflow tools.
Citrix said that it will keep the Podio site and service active following the close of the acquisition.
The Podio platform integrates with other cloud-based services including Google Apps, Google Docs and Dropbox.
"The Podio technology is a powerful and innovative solution that is a natural fit with the Citrix portfolio and will help foster amazing innovation in the workplace," said Brett Caine, senior vice president for Citrix online services.
"We are also excited about having the Podio team as part of our organisation."
