China Breaks Microsoft Office Software Monopoly

China Breaks Microsoft Office Software Monopoly

A Chinese IT company has made a minor landmark success in breaking Microsoft’s monopoly of the office software market by signing a contract with Japanese IT product dealer, Internet Telephone, to sell its Yongzhong Office software in Japan.

Before signing the contract, Internet Telephone tracked and assessed the performance of the China-made office software for three months.

It finally reached the deal to sell it on the Japanese market to partly replace Microsoft’s Office series. Internet Telephone has started publicity work on the Chinese software. It is expected that sales could reach over five billion yen in 2004. – (World IT
