Feng Office for IQTell users

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017. By: Conrado Vina

Last Thursday we started to see a big spike in our trials – and in the requests to test the e-mail module.

We quickly learned that a fellow software company (IQTell) was planning to shut down at the end of July.

I don’t know the IQTell team personally but I am a big fan of GTD (more on this, and how it influenced a lot of what Feng Office is, on a subsequent post), which a large portion of their community embraces. And when a fellow software company closes down it is never received as good news as we understand too well the challenges of building a successful software company – even if you have a passionate and loyal customer base. And from my conversations with IQTell users they certainly have a passionate community, IQTell delivered excellent support, and its team built an amazing product. We wish everyone in the IQTell team the best of success in whatever endeavors they chose to pursue next.

Many of these users share the same vision we have for the product the team and me have been building for almost 10 years. So for those IQTell users who would like to join us we are offering a 50% discount if they come over before IQTell officially shuts down services at the end of July.

For those IQTell users evaluating Feng Office (you can kick off your own free, 30 day trial here) we are collecting their needs and prioritizing their requests. Our goal is to get us to feature parity as quickly as possible. We will be sharing our plans and additional information with IQTell users on subsequent posts here and through other channels.

Back at blogging!

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017. By: Conrado Vina

With a flood of interest and new clients signing up over the past week I thought I would turn my attention back to our blog and engaging the community.

Over the past year and a half we’ve been busy setting up our headquarters in Austin, Texas, bringing on new talent and investing in building the product. It’s been busy and I’m excited to be back here blogging again!

A big part of this spike in sign-ups was generated by the news that IQTell is planning to shut down at the end of July. And although I’ve been meaning to talk about our 3.5 release for weeks months now, the concerns of this large group of new users made it urgent to make a public statement.

I will follow up with this statement, and a ton of news and information after that. Stay tuned!
