In general terms, Feng Office has seemed like a complete productivity suite, which can give a lot of play in an SME interested in carrying out collaborative projects among several employees, or who opt for teleworking. While its minor applications (tasks, contacts, calendars) are very well resolved and have nothing to envy other services, fails miserably in what should be their priorities: email and document management. However, if we do not have many office claims, it may be an option to consider due to its price-quality ratio.
