After completion of the financing, Moka plans to continue expanding into the HR sector by furthering the development of comprehensive SaaS-based HR solutions and continuing its commitment to product innovation and enhancement while stepping up efforts in recruiting and training talented professionals.

"We are seeing a subtle change in the relationship between employers and their employees as an increasing number of employees are working to realize their own value while focusing more on the work experience as well as on how to derive a sense of achievement from their work. In the HR software sector, a field that is seen as being closest to 'people', traditional HR software products that were exclusively designed for decision makers to manage employees are not what companies really need," said Moka CEO and co-founder Li Guoxing.

"As a result, we decided to design products not only for HR professionals or decision makers, but also for other roles across the organization, including employees, interviewers, candidates and executives, by shifting our focus to each individual involved in the process. We plan to create the next generation of complete SaaS-based HR solutions for all employees across the organization by using our innovative technologies and expertise to deliver a better work experience to each employee and allow them achieve more as a member of the organization. This is also our mission at Moka," Li added.

At the same time, in order to recruit quality talent and deepen efforts in research and development of new technologies and offerings, Moka have established a second headquarters in the Tianfu New Area, Sichuan province. Moka has also entered into a strategic collaboration with the area's government agencies to build product, service and marketing facilities there, with the goal of promoting the development of the SaaS-based HR sector by facilitating industrial transformation through our professional services," added Mr. Li, the CEO. "Moka looks forward to working in concert with more industry partners to develop the next-generation of complete SaaS-based HR solutions that are smarter and easier to use, with the aim of empowering recruitment strategies among employers and helping improve the overall social efficiency."

The Chinese market for SaaS-based HR services has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, and foresees a bright future by leveraging the growing number of opportunities brought about by the changes in industry policies, market conditions and the management model adopted by key industry players. In particular, the awareness of the importance of using information systems has been raised among Chinese firms while their ability to pay for it has also been strengthened.

Over the past six years, the average purchase price of products has increased fivefold, a testament to their willingness to pay for premium solutions; at the same time, rather than choosing on-premise products, organizations are increasingly looking for more agile SaaS-based solutions that can deliver a better user experience. This has opened up new opportunities for the SaaS-based HR services market.

"Tiger Global focuses on investment in SaaS-based products that provide both in-depth business value and an excellent user experience for customers. As a result, we are very optimistic about the growth potential of the Chinese SaaS market," indicated Wang Pengfei, Partner at Tiger Global. "Moka is committed to delivering a first-class experience to the user by providing them with SaaS-based HR solutions, a commitment that is in line with our philosophy. I am thrilled to cooperate with the Mr. Li in this investment and I am confident that under his leadership, Moka is well-positioned to consolidate its leadership in the Chinese market by empowering more organizations with its premium solutions.
