The cloud-based practice management application MyCase announced this week that it has  been acquired by AppFolio, a company that creates software for use in residential property management. MyCase founder and CEO Matthew Spiegel announced the acquisition in an email to subscribers this week, saying that he will continue to run MyCase.

Here is what he said in the email:

Over the past two years, you have helped make MyCase the best and fastest growing web based practice management application on the market. It is with incredible pride that I say we have the most amazing customers a company could ask for. You provide us with valuable feedback and understand that we are working tirelessly to improve MyCase and provide unmatched service.

MyCase is passionate about providing the most robust solution with incredible customer service. We are committed to being the most responsive company in the marketplace and providing a simply perfect customer experience. We are committed to improving MyCase through user feedback and doing it extremely expeditiously and we will always do whatever we need to in order to keep that promise. It is for this reason that I am so very proud to share the news that MyCase has been acquired by AppFolio!

AppFolio is based in Santa Barbara and the team has many years of experience developing web-based software that is designed for businesses in specific vertical markets. They were founded by the same team that founded GoToMeeting and GoToMyPC, applications that most everyone is familiar with. The flagship product (AppFolio Property Manager) allows property managers to improve their workflow so they save time and get more done. AppFolio and MyCase are built with the same infrastructure and technology; we both have really happy customers who love our software; and the AppFolio team is just as dedicated to providing the best product and service available as we are. We really have so much in common with the AppFolio team – the match between our companies is incredible!

I want you to know that this merger means absolutely no change to you as a MyCase customer, other than better service and a better product. I will continue to run MyCase and our team will remain completely intact, with the addition of many people to help accommodate our continued growth. The whole goal of this endeavor is to make MyCase the best practice management system in the industry. I want you to feel very comfortable with this fact and I am personally available to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

This is a monumental time for MyCase and our community. I want to again thank each and every one of you for being incredibly loyal MyCase subscribers. The future is so bright for us and we look forward to sharing it with you!

AppFolio is headquartered in Goleta, Calif. According to its website, its chief strategist, Klaus Schauser, was responsible for creating Citrix GoToMyPC and GoToMeeting, and its CTO, Jon Walker, has been a founding member of multiple start-up companies.
