    Pros
    We save time and gain efficiency and clarity with Karbon. The integration with Practice Ignition has been great as well.
    Its better than its competitors. Great customer support - online support is super quick.
    Karbon is right at the top - best software available - permanently developing and adding features - super support.
    Cons
    The "clunkyness" of this softwares use can be annoying at first. I am slightly unhappy with the lack of reports of all jobs and tasks in one place.
    Karbon is still missing some basic email functions that can prove frustrating and mean you still need to occasionally switch back to Gmail to get something setup.
    Not being able to integrate with my Calendar, thus I still need to open Outlook daily. Inability for my delegates of my Mailbox to have access in Karbon.

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Have you ever wanted ONE SPOT to check email, delegate task, manage projects and customers? Karbon is IT. NOthing else compares to this robust, all inclusive system. Forget Twist and Slack, and your gmail or outlook, zendesk and all the rest. This program, while made for the accounting industry, is the perfect solution for any industry, and even a single individual could use it, but it shines with...

    Pros

    Everything about Karbon.

    Cons

    They have both of these on their Fall 2017 roadmap: 1) time clock for job/client/employee time tracking (which is the only other external program we now use and can't wait to only use Karbon for everything); 2) Canned Responses (template emails plug & play). Coming soon, and I can deal with these cons because of everything else has saved so much time.

    KarbonApp for the Growing Firm

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Wonderful and I can't wait to continue to gain further best practice and utilize all the components around capacity planning etc.

    Pros

    We implemented Karbon only a short time ago and I am already seeing significant impact on my time through the ease of delegation of specific tasks and the ownership of those tasks to be able to check provide oversite. My staff has had a similar response and although it has been a learning curve we all see the potential and benefits.

    Cons

    There are a few items around being able to apply templates after work is created (currently you cannot do this only at creation). It also takes the server five minutes or so to show a contact that you add which is a pain when setting up new client work. We had asked to have contact emails imported and although they were provided for some reason they did not get imported (that combined with the delay...

    Karbon -

    Reviewed a month ago

    Karbon has made work life easier. I am no longer looking at 4 trello boards, a white board, a daily to do list. I just run thru Karbon.

    Pros

    Love the ease of My Week and its integration with Google Calendar. I simply triage all my emails - allocated to my week if needed follow up. Then slot them into Google Calendar to allocate time. My phone even reminds me of scheduled tasks coming up. The templates for work are so easy to use. The client requests are user friendly for the clients and us. All emails are allocated to work or the client. No more scrolling thru emails to find that particular document. Its all in the work. Essential with monthly or quarterly BAS. Or even if a client purchases a new car you simply add that email to their next years tax return!

    Cons

    Would love signing to be part of client requests. Its actually essential!Would also like documents to be added to the client rather than work as sometimes you don't have a work item.

    It's a good software choice but a hard learning curve

    Reviewed a month ago

    It's a viable option but not the best choice for my practice

    Pros

    Email tracking and assigning to clients and their monthly projects

    Cons

    The workflow was harder to use and the learning curve much longer than I wanted to spend

    Karbon is for serious practice owners who want to scale their firm

    Reviewed a month ago

    100% optimal. Its a solid product used by the best accounting firms globally. It is THE ONLY product on the market at the time of this writing that will action emails into workflows. If you dislike emails, then Karbon will help you delegate PDQ!

    Pros

    It keeps our team optimized and as a practice owner I know exactly what's happening and more importantly what's not happening!

    Cons

    Updating mass workflows for a new template - but honestly, each customer is so unique that it makes sense not to fiddle with the workflows on such a mass level
