     Cloud operating system (OS) solution company Picowork Limited announced today (March 1) that it is expanding its Hong Kong office as the company's regional base, capitalising on the city's strategic location to increase its market share and presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

     The company develops a cloud OS and proprietary technology called Picowork. Picowork easily allows users to interact and collaborate in a secure and personalised cloud OS environment. Users can freely communicate and share content across any device or browser in a highly encrypted and patented "secured container". Besides, Picowork also provides marketing management and big data functions. Following the successful launch of the system in October last year, the company swiftly garnered over 50 enterprise clients across the Asian region. It has recently decided to upgrade its Hong Kong office to oversee the company's regional operations.

     The company's CEO, Mr Frank Cheung, said, "Being at the heart of the region, Hong Kong is one of the most strategic business locations in our consideration. The city provides for easy and efficient regional collaboration with our offices and partners in Mainland China and Taiwan. That's why we are expanding our Hong Kong office operations to take on the supervisory role in the region."

     Mr Cheung continued, "With the high accessibility of Hong Kong and its low and simple tax regime, the city allows us to provide cost-efficient and smart cloud solutions for partners and clients in the Asian region." He added that Picowork intends to develop the Hong Kong business and enhance Picowork further so that personal users and enterprises alike in local and regional markets can adopt the most advanced and innovative technology in the world.

     Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Mr Charles Ng said, "Hong Kong is one of the leading regional hubs for cloud technology, offering exciting local opportunities and great potential as a launch pad for cloud-related companies' expansion into Mainland China and international markets. We look forward to Picowork's successful expansion via Hong Kong."
