Engineering Support

We have a large team of certified and experienced LibreOffice developers, who are recognised for their depth of knowledge and their bug fixing capabilities.

Bugs are an intrinsic part of any software development (even the most costly proprietary software). The availability of contracted support, to address potential software code issues against an SLA is vital when considering the deployment of any program in a corporate environment. Collabora Productivity supports its build of LibreOffice at the Source Code level. As such we analyse, diagnose and solve issues at code level and provide our customers with Problem Temporary Fix (PTF) patches. When the fix is confirmed we include these into the next patch release of Collabora Office, in addition to contributing them to the LibreOffice project.
Collabora Productivity has a large team of certified LibreOffice developers who are recognised for their depth of knowledge and their bug fixing capabilities. Over the years, we have provided the solution to many problems; regressions, simple application flaws and interoperability issues. Based on this experience, the company offers annually contracted Level 3 support packages. While we provide some bug fixing capability into our product purchases, often fixes for issues can be included later in our development roadmap. By procuring Level 3 code-fix packs, you get an SLA for commencing work on fixing your issue. In special circumstances we can also offer one-off fixes against specific client issues.
