Zoho Drives SaaS Adoption in China with Baihui Partnership

Partner Takes Zoho Writer, Zoho Sheet, Zoho Show & Zoho CRM to the Chinese Audience

Zoho announced it has partnered with Baihui to re-brand and distribute Zoho’s online collaborative productivity and business applications to users in China.

"We are very excited to partner with Baihui in China. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) revolution is in full swing, and we believe that Chinese users and companies can leapfrog by moving online faster," said Sridhar Vembu, Zoho CEO. "We combine Baihui's breadth of experience in the market with Zoho's innovative technology to offer the best online applications in the market. Both Baihui and Zoho/AdventNet are making substantial investments to make this relationship succeed. This partnership will bring tremendous cost and productivity benefits to Chinese users and companies"

Baihui’s parent company, PC Stars, is one of the largest software online distributors in China with more than 2,400 software resellers across China and more than 1,000 system Integrators.

“It’s a great cooperation for Baihui to launch Zoho applications in China,” added Mr. Liu Jianhua, CEO of PC Stars (Baihui’s parent company), “As the leading SaaS provider and vertical search engine in China, Baihui is going to bring more and more wonderful and useful SaaS services to Chinese users. Zoho is the best choice for Baihui to push its SaaS business forward, even though we value it as a global market by now.”
