Demandforce, a software-as-a-service operations management tool for small businesses, has been acquired by Intuit for $424 million dollars. Never heard of Demandforce? That’s okay — they didn’t really want you to. Says Bill Gurley of Benchmark Capital, Demandforce’s largest investor: “Demandforce focuses on local professional businesses and has chosen to keep an intentionally low profile… We never even announced Benchmark’s funding of the company, which I believe is unprecedented.” [Source: Bill Gurley]
