Exceeds expectations

Karbon has solved the 'silo' problem in my business. Complete visibility of communications between team members and customers is now a reality. The Karbon development team and support team are amazing and really care about me and my business.

Keeping the dispersed team connected

Syncing with my Outlook email and calendar helps me prioritize my day. The project management side gives me visibility into my team's work. Karbon's functionality allows our bookkeeping and accounting teams to keep projects on track and ensure future projects don't get missed. I appreciate the insights into what is being worked on, the due dates and the workflow.

Finally in control of my practice

There are many features I love, but overall, I love being able to see at a glance exactly where we are with client deadlines and what we need to prioritize. Before this, the practice management system I was using required me to download data into Excel, mess about for hours and the next day, it had all changed. I love being able to allocate work directly from my inbox, moving things to My Week to do later — it's great!

Custom Pricing

Karbon has three pricing plans: Team, Business, and Enterprise. Firms under 50 users can choose either a Team or Business plan and the total cost is simply the number of users multiplied by the monthly cost of an annual contract. For example, for a 5-user firm on an annual Business plan, Karbon would cost $445 USD per month in total.

Jetpack workflow has two pricing plans: Organize and Scale.

The Organize plan costs $45/month, per user on a monthly subscription, and $36/month, per user on an annual subscription.

The Scale plan costs $50/month, per user on a monthly subscription, and $39/month, per user on an annual subscription.
