Gridsum Launches Jointly-Developed "Faxin Wei Su" Platform

BEIJING, Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gridsum Holding Inc. ("Gridsum" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GSUM), a leading provider of cloud-based big-data analytics and artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions in China, today announced that Gridsum, in cooperation with Tencent and the PRC People's Court Press, launched the "Faxin Wei Su" Platform ("the Platform"), a litigation service on WeChat's micro application platform, on November 7, 2017.

The Platform integrates Faxin, Gridsum's Chinese legal information platform which was jointly developed by Gridsum and the PRC People's Court Press as a part of Gridsum's broader legal solutions suite, with Tencent's WeChat app, China's largest social media and messaging platform, to provide the world's first integrated online litigation and remote trial handling service.

Gridsum, leveraging its unparalleled capabilities in big data, combines the expansive reach and user interface of WeChat with Faxin's extensive legal knowledgebase. The Platform provides both the courts and litigants with a fast and secure channel to match similar cases, make case status inquiries, submit files, and set appointments during the litigation process. All parties can join a trial remotely through the Platform and produce and question evidence throughout the process. All documents, including trial records, settlement agreements and other related files can also be accessed online after the trial is over. The Platform's diversified dispute resolution system provides efficient and flexible tools for remote trials and should help ease congestion in a highly crowded court system.

Gridsum, Tencent and the PRC People's Court Press will continue to work closely in actively exploring new technologies, setting up Smart Court Laboratories, and managing the implementation and operation of the platform.

Mr. Guosheng Qi, Chief Executive Officer of Gridsum, commented, "I am excited to have the opportunity to work jointly with Tencent and the PRC People's Court Press to launch the Platform. By integrating Faxin's data resources and our big data and extensive artificial intelligence capabilities with Tencent's WeChat app, the Platform will help China's judicial system migrate towards a 'Smart Court' initiative and greatly benefit prosecutors, law firms and others within the judicial system. We remain committed to helping China as it reforms its judicial process and working to promote and develop new technology like this platform."      

Faxin Wei Su forms part of Gridsum's broader and comprehensive suite of legal solutions targeting courts, prosecutors, law firms and others within the judicial system. The rollout of Gridsum's legal services product suite is accelerating within China's court system. This development further highlights the Company's expectations for solid triple-digit growth in revenues from its legal suite in 2017.
