Ceros is fantastic for companies who can afford it. It's not ideal for startups who don't have the budget for it. If your company or agency is interested in creating interactive content, but you don't have the skill sets in-house to develop or code them properly, Ceros is for you

Kartra is a great platform for a service-based business that needs a moderate cost solution and one-stop shop for their business needs. Kartra has a marketplace of professionals that can train and or get your services set up in the system. The access to Kartra experts is valuable since the platform does have a bit of a learning curve and is not user-friendly when just starting out.

Pros
Ceros
  • Easy to use and adopt user interface. If you know basic Photoshop, you can use this.
  • Encouraging roadmap - the product has gotten better every year. The company obviously listens to client feedback.
  • Smart, dedicated client team - always checking in, comes with new ideas, generally nice people. We always love our meetings with them!

Support Rating
Ceros
Our CSMs have always been 100% and their support team typically responds within an hour or two. Their design/build team also worked with us on perfecting several experiences and are always mindful of how a project is going. One of their designers didn't really understand one of our requests and the project took more rounds of revisions than in previous projects, but they rectified the issue and the project came out well in the end. That outcome probably only happened in the time it did due to our CSM consistently checking in and getting feedback throughout the project - unfortunately, not something that happens enough with all our partners.

Ceros takes what would be difficult to accomplish in the Adobe suite of products and makes it easy. When it comes to user experience, user interface and customization options, Ceros is a much better alternative than Adobe. However, Adobe is the trusted name and some may be more comfortable with Adobe products

I switched from Teachable to Karta. Teachable was at a lower price point but I found it harder to use and didn't provide all of the features the Kartra offers. I also experienced holding on to funds for a long period of time after a transaction has been completed. I'm happy that I switched.

  • Great return on investment because you are able to get rid of many of the other programs you may be using.
  • Access to Kartra experts to get you up to speed on how to use the platform is a great value added within the Kartra marketplace. You can also add your services to the marketplace.
  • The CRM within Karta is top-notch. Allowing you to segment and tag your clients based on your own criteria.
