“Given India’s massive workforce and diverse culture, it has proven to be an important market for us. There is a huge demand for high-quality and effective tools in the market. However, research has shown alarming levels of pirated software being used here, including office software suites. Our aim is to end this era of piracy with a highly efficient and affordable suite that caters to multiple user segments. We will continue to invest in the market to achieve this goal.”
