With the news of their acquisition of the popular QuickOffice suite, it’s clear that Google is keen to expand their mobile and cloud office apps offerings.
Already a big hit on both Android, Symbian and iOS, QuickOffice is billed as a “a leader in office productivity solutions” and makes it easy to convert between different office file formats.
The app (available in free and premium versions) also offers deep integration with cloud services like Dropbox, Box.net and Google Docs.
Here’s how Google announced their acquisition in their blog this morning, under the title, “Google + Quickoffice = get more done anytime, anywhere.”
We’re happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions.
Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we’ll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite.
Quickoffice has a strong base of users, and we look forward to supporting them while we work on an even more seamless, intuitive and integrated experience.
We’re excited to welcome the Quickoffice team and their users to Google.
