LOS ANGELES, February 3, 2022 – Marlin Equity Partners (“Marlin”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired InFlight, a leading software platform that helps enterprise organizations modernize their business applications and improve talent acquisition and the overall employee experience (“EX”). The company’s solution allows enterprises to extend the life of their existing human capital management (“HCM”) systems and create modern, web-based user experiences that are integrated with their systems of record. InFlight will be merged with Skuid, an existing Marlin portfolio company, significantly enhancing Skuid’s cloud application development platform with a more comprehensive offering for enterprises that are seeking to optimize their people operations with speed and ease.
“This is a game-changer for the future of people operations applications. The combined capabilities of Skuid and InFlight present a much-needed solution for enterprises that want to design, create and deliver impactful apps,” says Ryan Niemann, Skuid CEO. “With the addition of InFlight, enterprise companies can now leverage the differentiated human-centered design approach of Skuid with integrations across HCM applications.”
James La Brash, founder and CEO at InFlight, shares, “We are thrilled to join the Skuid team. InFlight brings new integration capabilities to enterprises using Skuid, while enhancing our own customer offering with low-code UI-building capability. This marks a new era for EX in the HCM market, where enterprises can empower citizen developers and IT teams to quickly and easily improve the digital EX of their existing applications in response to changing employee expectations and market conditions. Providing enterprises with greater agility, Skuid and InFlight will enable them to gain a competitive market advantage.”
“The acquisition presents a rare opportunity to combine two companies in the low-code application development market that have highly-differentiated offerings, yet a shared vision for enhancing the value of existing applications,” said Ryan Wald, a managing director at Marlin. “InFlight allows Skuid to expand its capabilities to address talent acquisition and employee experience applications, which are currently in high demand.”
