How is Canvas priced?
Canvas is very affordably priced and the efficiencies you gain when using Canvas will easily make up for whatever you pay for our service. It can take days for someone to track down a technician in the field to find out what they wrote on a paper work order that has a big coffee spill on it! You'll get all that time back when using Canvas. If you are using 3 part forms, then the cost for those alone can add up. Especially if you have to update your form and recycle all of your old ones!
Plus Canvas allows your business to move faster. Your forms can be transmitted to your office and customers right away...no more long truck rides for your paper forms. Order parts sooner. Start jobs sooner. Invoice sooner. And collect payment sooner! Canvas is great for your cashflow and for providing better customer service. We call that a "win/win"!

Does each person that is going to use Canvas on their mobile device need to be on a payment plan?
Yes! The pricing above is "per user" pricing. Accounts are not to be shared across multiple users. Plus there is all kinds of functionality within Canvas connected to having an account for each user. You can control what Canvas Apps each user has access to. You can put your users in groups so you can easily publish new apps out to those groups. You can auto-populate fields in Canvas based on the user logging in, which saves them time. And you can see what users are submitting data. Each submission is tied the account that filled it out and sent it in. Can I use Canvas on multiple devices?
Can I use Canvas on multiple devices?
Yes! One of the main reasons we license on a per user basis is because so many people today have multiple devices. So each of your users can log onto Canvas on multiple devices. You might have an iPhone and an iPad. And maybe you want to use your Windows laptop, too. Go right ahead! Canvas is available on a wide variety of devices.
Do all of my users have to be on the same plan?
No! You can put your users on the plan that is best for their individual needs. If someone is going to be filling in forms 35-40 times per month then you should consider one of the subscription plans. You can change plans whenever you wish, too. So if someone is going to start using Canvas a lot then you can upgrade them from Pay as You Go to Monthly or Annual.
How many separate Canvas Apps can I use?
As many as you want! Pricing is not tied to the number of Canvas Apps you create yourself or download from our Application Store. You can create as many as you want and edit them as often as you want. We want you to move all of your paper forms over to Canvas! As you ask your users to fill out more forms on Canvas then their usage will increase, which impacts your price if you are on the Pay as You Go plan. But if your users are on subscription plans then your pricing is fixed! Build as many Canvas Apps as you want and fill them out as often as you want.
What if I'm using Canvas in a retail environment where my customers are filling in Canvas Apps. Do I need to license it for each customer?
No! There are some scenarios where per device licensing is allowed. This is one of them. Just license Canvas for the number of devices you have in your place of business. Lots of business use Canvas for signing waiver forms or sign-up forms where they just hand a tablet to their customer to use.
Do you charge my card each time someone submits data with Canvas?
No! We only charge your card one time per month. We roll up your charges for the month and charge you once. You can view your statements online with Canvas in the "My Account" area under "My Home".
In summary, Canvas is priced very afforadbly. The efficency you gain by using Canvas will easily make up for what you pay. There are three different “per user “ payment plans; monthly, annually, and pay as you go. A Canvas user is able to be logged in to more than one device and each user may have a different payment plan. We roll up your charges for the month and charge your card once. Canvas is not priced based on apps so you may use as many as you want! In the scenario of a retail enviroment where your customers are filling in Canvas Apps per device licensing is allowed.
