CitySoft's Community Enterprise platform combines the best of both open source and traditional software while minimizing the disadvantages of both.
With CE you get the benefits of open source - a true open source platform which has full source code availability, can be hosted anywhere, and has a community of developers.
And, you get the benefits of traditional software - a fully finished, documented, supported product that is easy to upgrade and can be purchased in its entirety or as a monthly ASP subscription.
What you don't get is stuck. You won't be stuck with a high price up front or over the long term. And, you won't get stuck on a "code island" as many organizations do that purchase proprietary software or open source software that is customized until it is unique and un-upgradeable.
