Zoom customers in India can now purchase their most popular plans and add-ons in local foreign money, the cloud-based video conferencing service supplier introduced on Friday. “We are excited to bring the INR buying option to our potential user base in India,” Sameer Raje, who’s India Head for Zoom stated in an announcement including that “India remains a key focus market for Zoom and we will continue striving to grow as an Indian company.”

Zoom’s transfer to help local foreign money for funds is in line with the corporate’s ongoing efforts to ramp up its India operations. Previously, it had been relying majorly on telecom operators like Airtel to promote its product(s). “We also have certain AV integrators who are partner resellers taking our products to the market,” Sameer had revealed in an unique interview with Financial Express Online in April. This is the primary time Zoom will promote on to shoppers in India.
