Kolab Now: Our prices explained

For all the fellows out there who are interested in our product and service we would like to explain today again the difference of individual & group accounts and prices that apply.

Kolab is the result of more than 20 years development of Open Source technologies for collaboration. It offers a hosted e-mail and groupware service for individuals, groups, businesses and organizations.

As we state in the terms of service:

“We provide the Service on software we have developed, participated in the development in, as well as software that was developed by third parties. All that software is Open Source / Free Software according to the definitions of the Open Source Initiative (OSI) and the Free Software Foundation (FSF). This is essential to protect your freedom to leave: There are no proprietary components that would stop you from setting up your own server for the same purpose, and migrate your data from Kolab Now to that server. You are our customer. All of the Service is paid for by your monthly fee. There are no third party revenue streams, no selling of advertising or personal data. We are at your service. Unlike other providers of similar services and this software, we also pay the developers of the software, which Apheleia IT AG releases as Open Source / Free Software. So by choosing Kolab Now, you are allowing key contributors to your favourite Open Source applications to focus on what they do best: Developing more software, which is then made available to all.”

With a Kolab Now account one chooses more than an E-Mail service as the groupware features allow to handle everyday communication as well as planning with a smooth workflow.
