Collabora Productivity announces a global commercial support offering for LibreOffice. Targeted to organizations deploying LibreOffice on a large scale, the offering encompasses:
- An enterprise-ready and fully supported version of LibreOffice on all major platforms (Windows, MacOS X and Linux), which integrates security fixes to ensure that all productivity needs are met, for a yearly subscription per seat as low as 3 dollars / 2.5 euro / 2 pounds;
- Level 3 bugfixing support, for the issues faced by organizations deploying LibreOffice, with the provision of updated builds (including MSP patch files for Windows);
- LibreOffice consultancy services, targeted - as an example - to the integration of hardware devices, the development of specific features, server deployment of LibreOffice, the import/export of particular file formats, or the conversion of specific MS Office documents.
Collabora Productivity provides the necessary confidence to move LibreOffice deployments from pilot to final status, based on the competence developed over 10 years by an experienced Level 3 support team. The same team provides longer term support contracts over several years, to reduce deployment risks.
To complement its offering, Collabora Productivity offers a range of support options based on a flexible choice of products and prices: short-term support for community builds, long term support for Collabora builds, or even custom builds for specific customers.
"Collabora Productivity is going to be a game changer", says Collabora Productivity founder and VP Michael Meeks. "So far, organizations willing to deploy LibreOffice on thousands of desktops had a limited choice, and frequently had to engage individual consultants who struggled to provide all the piece of the complete solution. Collabora offers a global team, to support large deployments and migrations with the entire range of solutions".
Collabora Productivity will provide its value added offering either directly or through a network of local partners who are able to provide project management for migrations, training and support in the native language.
