Bulletin: B.C.'s Bananatag merged with Germany's Staffbase to create internal comms giant

The new combined company will have 450 employees at 11 global locations serving 1,000 customers.

This morning Bananatag, the Kelowna- and Vancouver-based provider of internal communications software, announced its merger with Staffbase, a German internal communication platform.

  • The new joint company will have 450 employees at 11 global locations and will serve 1,000 customers, according to a company statement.

“This is an amazing day for Bananatag,” said Bananatag CEO and Co-founder Corey Wagner, in a statement. “Our people are incredibly proud of the brand we’ve built and the many customers we have the privilege of serving. We couldn’t be more excited to take this giant leap forward for our customers and the internal communication field.” 

Why the merger?

  • Bananatag lets users collaborate to design, distribute, and measure email communication, as well as send and schedule messages on Microsoft Teams and Slack.

  • Staffbase has built a mobile-first platform to help organizations reach their employees, no matter where they are, through an employee app and modern intranet.

The new company aims to more fully connect workplaces through faster and easier-to-use integrated communication products—end-to-end platform for employee communications.

  • Goodbye B.C. tech? As part of the merger, the new company will operate under the Staffbase brand. RIP Bananatag :(
