According to the news release accompanying the announcement, the InFlight platform helps enterprise organizations modernize their business applications and improve the talent and employee experience. Together, Skuid and InFlight are said to be able to offer the most complete solution for enterprises seeking to optimize people operations – from talent acquisition to talent management and beyond – by creating modern user experiences that are integrated with their systems of record, with unprecedented speed and ease.
“This is a game-changer for the future of people operations applications,” according to Ryan Niemann, Skuid Chief Executive Officer (CEO). “The combined capabilities of Skuid and InFlight present a much-needed solution for enterprises that want to design, create, and deliver impactful apps. With the addition of InFlight, enterprise companies can now leverage the unique human-centered design approach of Skuid with integrations across HCM (human capital management) applications.”
New and existing customers can use the Skuid + InFlight combination to dramatically unlock the value of existing systems, easily tailoring human-friendly enterprise applications and experiences across revenue, customer and people operations. Companies can seamlessly integrate multiple applications, unify disparate data and processes, and simplify the user experience to drive adoption and increase productivity.
Skuid was launched in February 2013 as a spinoff of Skoodat, a cloud platform focused on helping educational entities manage their data and grew rapidly as we tracked its progress (see all teknovation.biz articles on the company here). Ironically, Inflight was founded the same year.
Skuid raised a $25 million Series B in 2017 and announced “a majority recapitalization of and growth investment” from Marlin Capital Partners in 2019. Founder and CEO Ken McElrath turned over the top executive slot to Neimann last March and assumed the role of Chief Strategy Officer.
