About Collaborator Editions

Starting from version 10.0 Collaborator is distributed in three editions: Collaborator Community, Collaborator Team and Collaborator Enterprise.

Collaborator Community is the lightweight edition of Collaborator, designed especially for small development groups with simpler needs. Collaborator Community is offered free of charge and includes the basic features necessary for code review.

Collaborator Team is designed for medium development groups with moderate needs. Collaborator Team includes the majority of features necessary for code review without the extra cost of the enterprise level features found in Collaborator Enterprise.

Collaborator Enterprise is the full featured edition of Collaborator, designed especially for large development groups.

The remainder of this section will describe the differences between the three products.

Set Up and Licensing

All three editions of Collaborator are shipped within the same installer that can be found on our downloads page. The products are differentiated only by the license codes installed. During a trial installation, the product option will be given in the First-Run Initialization phase. After installation, you can easily switch from one edition to another, by changing out the license code with a new one provided by your account manager.
