As we reported earlier in the day, the information giant Google made a deal to acquire QuickOffice- manufacturer of professional software for mobile platforms. The products of the newly purchased company will be integrated into Google Apps and thus the package of applications will become more diverse and useful.
Information about the transaction was published in the official blog of Google. They explained the reasons why the largest search engine has decided to buy QuickOffice. The biggest role in deciding played a great experience and established practices in the areas of various file formats, which make products universal. QuickOffice offers applications that are compatible with many types of devices and formats, combined with access to remote services. The combination is powerful and sought after. It also fits into the overall concept of working at Google.According to the website of QuickOffice, the company has a substantial customer base and range. 300 million are devices that are installed on its products. Users of services are people from 180 countries worldwide.
One of the weaknesses of Google Apps is that it offers features that are professional enough to get businesses to their attention. QuickOffice is a chance for Google to move more quickly through the stages of beta testing and permanent products that work, but not sufficiently stable. Some time ago Microsoft held a campaign in which ridicule the weaknesses of Google Apps. Some of the accusations redmandtsi were quite reasonable.
