From version 3.4 to version 3.6.3 – A journey of 2 years

Friday, October 12th, 2018. By: Conrado Vina

It’s hard to summarize everything that happened in these past 2 years.

The whole story is more fit for a book than for a blog post.

In the meantime here is a quick recap of the most relevant and high-level topics/news I’d like to share today:

  • The latest stable version (Version 3.6.3.5) is just released – and it is our best version ever
  • From version 3.4 to version 3.6 we finished developing the modules for invoicing, costs and expenses, risks, and forms. Plus a ton of fixes, UX improvements, and overall system performance.
  • We’ll be rolling out the latest version to all clients starting today and through the upcoming weeks.
  • We are working on a ton more improvements and new features.
  • We moved our repository from Sourceforge to Github. So stay tuned therefor updates on the Community Edition
  • We are working on an updated website to make it easier to engage with us and provide more updates on our activities
  • We’ve used the Feng Office Enterprise Edition as the core foundation to a new product we’re launching designed specifically for technical professional services (specifically engineering, geotechnical and environmental consultants).

Check out the latest version our and give us your feedback!

If you want Feng Office for your business or professional organization and would like to check out the Professional or Enterprise Editions, please contact us and we’ll gladly do a personalized demo for you (Note that we are requesting you submit email accounts with your business domain. Because of ever increasing demand on our time we are currently ignoring 99% of requests coming from generic email addresses).

Oh, and to answer some of the most recent FAQ:

  • We are fully GDPR compliant.
  • Yes, we are working on a PHP 7 (And MySQL 8) release

Cheers!

Feng Office GDPR compliance

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018. By: Conrado Vina

Several clients have been asking us about GDPR – whether or not we comply – and what changes have we made to our processes and our policies.

Short answer is: yes, we do comply with REGULATION 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (aka: GDPR).

 

What has Feng Office changed to comply with GDPR?

Practically nothing. Feng Office has always regarded the protection of personal (or, more broadly, private) information as a core principal on everything we do. Both our Website and the installations of Feng Office that we host through Feng Sky collect the minimum possible personally identifiable information. When data processing is necessary, all processing is done with the upmost care and respect of privacy and integrity of data.

Feng Office is in the business of developing and providing a data processing platform, helping its clients be more efficient and more secure. We are not in the business of processing anyone’s personal data. It has always been stated on our Terms of Service that we do not process nor resell our users data in any way. The information that you trust with us stays with us.

The little personally identifiable data we collect (Name, email, and phone numbers) are collected with the sole purposes of either providing a response to a contact request, an inquiry, a trial request, notifying of system and feature changes, providing our services, or were provided as a reference of a potential interest in doing business.

If required for supporting the work of our clients, permission to access any other type of data is explicitly requested.

We explicitly added to our Terms of Services and Security and Privacy Policies the required statements and policies for GDPR compliance.

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!
