SEOUL, South Korea, Aug. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Korea-based Polaris Office, an innovative leader in the cloud office market, today announced its expansion to India and emerging markets in Asia with the PC version.
Polaris Office, which is a subsidiary of Infraware and installed by default on more than 900 million smartphones in the world, is an office software that supports not only MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint but also Adobe PDF and ODF, an open-end document format. It has achieved a great success by retaining 43 million users in two years after its release on the market.
Specifically, 92% of its users are outside of Korea with 45% of this figure showing use in the IT advanced countries, such as Japan, the United Kingdom, and Germany which shows that it has firmly established its presence with the recognition of its quality and functions in the global market. With its stability and trustworthiness earning recognition in Korea as well, the office software has been purchased and used by public institutions and companies.
The Indian market which Polaris Office is to enter in earnest has a surging demand for office software due to its vast human resources, and high economic growth momentum and potential. Its expectation for software quality and price affordability has grown in proportion to its growing demand for software.
In Korea, Polaris Office's PC version has been recognized for its technology and quality while satisfying particular foreign and domestic customer needs. Through its entry into the Indian market, it plans to firmly consolidate its position in the Indian and ASEAN market and prove its quality and excellence for its corporate and general users in the region again.
