MyOffice software developer New Cloud Technologies has submitted project passports to the Office Software Competence Center of the Ministry of Digital Development. Clients include Russian Railways and Rosatom Corporation. The company has applied for grants to refine its product.

The software developer “MyOffice” asked the authorities for 1.7 billion rubles to finish the project.

Project costs are estimated at 1.69 billion rubles, grants of 1.38 billion rubles have been applied for. The working group approved the creation of a tool that will translate macros from the Microsoft Office programming language into the Russian solution language, from VBA to Lua, Kommersant learned.

At Russian Railways, macros in the Microsoft language are stored in 20% of documents, despite the fact that the use of a foreign product “in a cyber war” threatens the Russian economy, the authors said.

In other projects, the developer suggests adding some features from the Microsoft Office suite to MyOffice: for example, moving a range of cells in a table with the mouse, previewing imports, monitoring text edits. According to him, they increased labor productivity, so “office work in companies adapted to them.”

Until the end of 2022, New Cloud Technologies will introduce new products for private customers and small businesses. The company’s demand for them has grown exponentially. The company has not raised prices for more than five years, but plans to expand the range of offers.

In 2021, the company’s revenue almost doubled, to almost a billion rubles, and this year New Cloud Technologies expects a five-fold increase.

Against the background of sanctions in Russia, the demand for domestic operating systems has increased almost six times. Authorities and companies have begun testing Russian software, but the process from testing to deployment can take at least a quarter.
