Yesware, a Boston-based startup offering an email productivity service for salespeople, announced yesterday that it has acquired, an email file-sharing startup in San Francisco.

This is Yesware’s first acquisition, which has shown a lot of promise since the company’s initial launch with $1M in seed funding from Google Ventures and the Foundry Group. The acquisition follows the company’s most recent $13.5M Series B round in September, and is a part of a strategy aimed at accelerating growth and platform expansion.

In retrospect, hints of this acquisition were evident last month, when made the sudden announcement that it would be shutting down on November 11th and suggested Yesware as the next best thing. The current five-person team from will remain, and will develop Yesware’s expansion into San Francisco.

Yesterday’s announcement marks a year of tremendous growth for Yesware, which announced in September that it had increased monthly revenue by 1,300 percent in the past year. The company currently services over 360,000 users across 184 countries.
