Which version should I choose?

Feng Office Community Edition is usually used within academic environments and non-critical implementations and supported only through the forum, which may not provide Official Support from Feng Office's Team behalf. It is not recommended for business environments because it may contain bugs for which no support nor resolution time guarantee is provided, which at times may be essential.

Feng Office Professional and Enterprise Editions have all of the features within the Community Edition, and many more as it can be compared above.

Please bear in mind that there are more differences, but not all of them have been named there but the main ones.

For instance, a little example of what you may accomplish with the 'Clients & Projects' plugin:

You will easily be able to know something that worries almost every company, having a clear and fast vision of the estimated time of a project and actual executed time. If the executed time is higher, something has gone wrong and you are counting losses, whereas if it is the same or less, then you are making profit.

If hosting the system on your own premises is an organization policy or law requisite, Feng OnSite plans deliver the full Feng Office Professional and Enterprise Editions. Feng OnSite ensures immediate support on any issue, access to the Feng Office development team, new features and versions, and advice to get the most out of Feng Office and recommendations to avoid common problems. In this case you ought to reach us at contact@fengoffice.com for further information.

On the other hand, if you need any features not listed here, and are not sure whether or not Feng Office provides or will provide them, you can send us the feature inquiry and we will let you know whether they are in our Road Map or not. But no worries! Even if they are not in the Road Map, they could still be developed through custom development service.

Last but not least, in case you go for the Professional or Enterprise Editions, it will also mean you will be contributing and helping on keeping Feng Office alive and improving.
