Lots of tech companies have their head in the cloud. Youdao, a sub-brand of Chinese internet company NetEase, recently launched Youdao Cloud Cooperation, an enterprise platform where users can communicate and share notes, spreadsheets and files in real-time, allowing them to create and edit documents online while cooperating with other colleagues.

The tool is available across multiple platforms, including PC, Mac, web, iOS and Android, and is compatible with most mainstream document formats. William Ding, NetEase CEO, said the service is aimed at small teams with less than ten members in the file editing and sharing scenario.

Jiang Weihang, NetEase technology director, said traditional enterprise software usually costs a lot and demands promotion by IT departments. He doesn’t think this model suits the Chinese market. Consequently, Youdao Cloud Cooperation will adopt a freemium model, rather than the premium or subscription models adopted by most current enterprise services.
