ONLYOFFICE wins Gold award
These achievements have not gone unnoticed. This Fall, 2021, ONLYOFFICE was awarded Gold in the File Sharing & Collaboration category of the prestigious Cloud Computing Insider Awards.
The Insider IT-Awards, based on an annual survey of readers’ choices, are powered by Vogel IT-Medien, one of the most prominent publishers and event organizers for Information Technology in Germany.
Readers of the Insider media portals (BigData-Insider, CloudComputing-Insider, DataCenter-Insider, Dev-Insider, IP-Insider, Security-Insider and Storage-Insider) vote for their favorite services and solutions in various categories, and in 2021, their votes went overwhelmingly to ONLYOFFICE!
ONLYOFFICE now on WeChat
ONLYOFFICE, in its determination to grow with China’s online ecosystem, of which social media are a hugely important and vibrant part, has also announced that it is opening it channel on WeChat, the hugely popular and versatile messaging service that has quickly overtaken other local ‘weibo’ messaging services, while also remaining popular with large numbers of users outside China.
ONLYOFFICE for Chinese Android users
ONLYOFFICE’s WeChat presence follows the availability of the ONLYOFFICE app for Android on the Chinese software distribution platforms Huawei AppGallery and Xiaomi GetApps, in versions fully localized into Chinese.
China’s trademark regime follows a first-to-file system and so does not recognize international trademarks, if they don’t have official status on the mainland. Consequently, ONLYOFFICE decided to go ahead and register our trademark locally. This step allows us to do business in China and enter into partnership with Chinese software resellers and distributors.
“While it’s often assumed that Western businesses will find it tough going in China, for a host of reasons, including, obviously, linguistic and cultural differences, ONLYOFFICE sees this vast market as a great opportunity,” commented Galina Goduhina, Head Of Sales, at ONLYOFFICE. “Communication and collaboration don’t take place in a vacuum. Cross-border businesses seek to compete and collaborate online with the best tools available, and at ONLYOFFICE we’re confident we’re supplying those tools. We think a great future of working with and for our Chinese customers lies head”.
