Cloud-based software maker Salesforce.com Inc. said on Monday it agreed to acquire document-editing startup Quip for about $582 million.

Salesforce has an existing investment in Quip, whose word-processing platform is designed to be used by teams to edit documents or spreadsheets on mobile devices, wearables and desktops.

Quip will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Salesforce once the deal closes.

Quip Chief Executive Bret Taylor, former chief technology officer of Facebook Inc., was appointed to Twitter Inc.'s board last month.
