Google’s acquisition of Quickoffice to help reinforce Google Docs
Google have added another franchise to their already impressive arsenal with the acqusition of the popular cloud-based suite of tools Quickoffice. With the recent launch of Google Drive being directly integrated within Google Docs, the move likely seeks to better improve these services, especially in the enterprise sector. Quickoffice is now expected to be tagged with all upcoming Android devices adding another flavour to Google’s existing suite of mobile apps. Although Google could already offer some similar functions using GoogleDocs via mobile, Quickoffice will enable Google’s users to engage more with the Microsoft Office suite and other mobile tools and also allowing Google to better compete with Microsoft.
