After the Chinese New Year, due to the pneumonia epidemic of new coronavirus infection, many governments, enterprises and institutions have called for employees to work from home. This has led to a leap in growth in remote office platforms. On February 5, 2020, Ali ‘s mobile office application “Dingding” jumped to the top of Apple ’s free App Store ranking, while WeChat ranked third, and Jinshan’s WPS Office ranked second.
Dingding is an office software, aimed at enterprise users, and has a smaller audience and speed of advancement than personal software targeted at ordinary users. Ding Ding can jump to the top of the download list, which shows the urgent needs of the audience for online office and education. As of 2017, more than 80% of companies in the United States have introduced a remote working system, and 30 million people have been working remotely from home. By 2020, about 50% of technology companies will have about 29% of employees working remotely.
China’s online office market is growing rapidly. The size of China’s smart mobile office market in 2018 was around 23.4 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 20.8%. The market size of this industry is expected to be about 27.1 billion yuan in 2019, and the market size will increase to about 48.6 billion yuan by 2024, with a compound growth rate of 12.4%.
