Hi guys!
I did some searching around on Forumweb to learn more about the the different feautres of WHMCS and ClientExec but I could not find some, but seem most people is rating for WHMCS in relevant threads. So my question is, what features does WHMCS have that ClientExec doesn't? or vice versa?

WHMCS is the leader, so you will easily find any provisionning module, template/integration or payment gateway for WHMCS. When ClientExec have a very low amount of plugins.
So, if you need any extra features, WHMCS will be the best solution if you don't want to hire a developer

ClientExec does the job but WHMCS does the job better. Plus there are so many themes and plugins available to give you extra functionality. If you are looking for a cheap way to process billing and support clients then CE will work.

No doubt that WHMCS is the best and the main thing other panels needs to improve is either develop more and more freindly plugins and themes to help and ease the billings and they might need to take a survey from the existing customers or add a feature request option and get things done in a timely manner or make other developers (third party) develop and help then if any help needed to integrate those.

Without any such extra efforts most of such panel business will be going to WHMCS and if other products are improving make sure they create a migration script as well from whmcs as that will be the main pain for all.

We have been on Clientexec for about 6 years now. Development is steady but slow since it is being done by a group of 3-4 folks. Not as many plugins as WHMCS but is a much more stable system. Less security holes and readily available support.

While WHMCS is kind of the industry standard, you must understand one thing. Their support is literally Zero. Unless you are willing to wait for upto 24hours or actually pay $$ for each ticket you raise, the support is sometimes non existent. Yes, there is a lot of documentation around all the issues with WHMCS however, you will still have problems unique to your setup which can only be resolved with support and that's the drawback for them I guess. Also, they have moved to a billing model based on number of clients instead of a standard charge.

Also, remember, WHMCS has the same problems windows has which is because its so widely used, the security exploits are so frequent and there has been quite a few incidents of poor security implementation causing huge losses to few hosters. So, consider all the issues holistically before making your decision.

Having said that, the number of features and plugins WHMCS has is yet to be achieved by any competitor. A lot of themes that match your website are also available for WHMCS and a lot of the stuff is modifiable. If you wanted another provider to develop a plugin for you, they would easily do it for WHMCS but they will hesitate for any other billing application

I am a CE user but have also used WHMCS to me the mere amount of plugins available would make WHMCS the winner between the 2. WHMCS has more theme for purchase out there and it seems to be on a more rapid development cycle than CE.
