MEDIA ALERT: Tableau Acquires Infographics Startup Infoactive

Publish Date: August 4, 2015 - 12:00pm

Tableau Software today announced it has acquired Infoactive, an infographics web app startup based in Montreal.

“Our goal at Infoactive was to blend our passion for data and design to help people make sense of information,” said Trina Chiasson, CEO of Infoactive. “We’ve always admired Tableau’s mission to help people see and understand data and we’re thrilled to work together to pursue our shared vision.”

Infoactive helps people turn live data into mobile-friendly, interactive infographics. It won the award for Best Bootstrap Company at SXSW in 2013, followed by a successful Kickstarter campaign later that year. Infoactive launched its first public beta in 2014. As part of the acquisition, its three employees will join Tableau’s development team.

“The Infoactive team will be a great addition to the Tableau family,” said Dave Story, VP of Mobile and Strategic Growth at Tableau. “Their experience in data and design as well as building mobile and cloud sharing products will be a great asset to our development team.”

To focus on its shared vision with Tableau, Infoactive will wind down over the coming months. Customers can learn more about their plan at
