PALO ALTO, Calif., September 13, 2016 – WPS Office Software, a leading office productivity suite for PC and mobile devices, announced today it is the subject of a recent On the Radar report, published by global research firm Ovum. After an extensive evaluation of the software, Ovum concluded in the report that WPS Office is “the fully functional, highly compatible, low-cost alternative to Word, Excel and PowerPoint.”
The report points out that Microsoft’s dominance of the personal computing and office productivity markets has weakened in recent years, with the emergence of Google and its native apps and, more recently, with the arrival of fully functional, highly compatible, mobile apps. Used by consumers, students, and mobile professionals, these newer office productivity apps have found favor with an entire generation of users whose go-to device is a smartphone or tablet device running Android or iOS.
The Ovum report highlights four key aspects of WPS Office, which is available as a full suite that supports both mobile devices, as well as Windows and Linux-based PCs:
“We are exceptionally pleased that after evaluating our software, an industry leading research firm such as Ovum is validating WPS Office as the fully functional, highly compatible, low-cost alternative to Word, Excel and PowerPoint for a new and growing base of users who are not tied to Microsoft Office or who seek an alternative,” said Cole Armstrong, senior director of marketing, WPS Office Software. “Consumers, prosumers, mobile workers, students and small businesses are increasingly demanding a superior, integrated computing experience, but without the high cost. WPS Office is well-positioned to capitalize on this trend as we set our sights on expanding our global footprint.”
