Accounts and plans

There are two types of Kumu accounts that you can own: personal accounts and organization accounts. You can also get the enterprise version of Kumu, which is not just an account or plan—rather, it's a fully separate installation of Kumu on your own private servers.

This guide will explain the differences between these three options—if you're not sure which is the right choice for you, you're in the right place!

Personal accounts

Personal accounts are a great fit for individuals working on their own projects, collaborating with a few other people, or being invited to collaborate on someone else's project. Personal accounts are also a good option for teams of people that only have one designated Kumu expert, who builds and manages all of the Kumu projects for the team.

Anyone can sign up for a free personal account to create and own unlimited public projects—we love it when you share your work! Private projects are a paid service—each private project costs $9/month, and the price is discounted if you pay annually instead of monthly. After you sign up for your free account, you can go to your account settings to select a paid plan and/or switch to annual billing.

To see the full list of personal account features, check out our pricing page.

Note: You need to create a personal account (either free or paid) in order to create and own an organization account. Even if you think an organization account is the right option for you, be sure to sign up for your personal account first.

Legacy personal plans

Before we switched to per-project pricing, we offered a suite of plans that granted access to a pre-set number of private projects. If you subscribed to one of the plans below, you'll be converted to per-project pricing the next time your billing cycle restarts.

Plan Private projects Monthly Price Annual Price
Master 10 $49 $470
Journeyman 5 $34 $326
Apprentice 3 $23 $220
Junior 1 $9 $86
Free 0 $0 $0

Organization accounts

Kumu's organization accounts are a great fit for teams of people that have several active Kumu users. You can collaborate efficiently and securely with clients, colleagues, board members and more!

Organization accounts are also really useful when you're creating Kumu projects for clients, and you'd like your clients to be able to check in on your progress and give feedback.

Organization accounts give you fine-grained access control: give others view, edit, or admin rights to a project. Add members to the organization and group them into teams to assign permissions more efficiently. You'll also be able to see detailed activity feeds, comment on your map in real time, enhance security with two-factor authentication, and much more.

Organization accounts provide unlimited public projects with all of these features for $10/month. Organizations' private projects are $20 per project per month.

Note: You need to create a personal account (either free or paid) in order to create and own an organization account. Even if you think an organization account is the right option for you, be sure to sign up for your personal account first.

Legacy organization plans

Before we switched to per-project pricing, we offered a suite of plans that granted access to a pre-set number of private projects. If you subscribed to one of the plans below, you'll be converted to per-project pricing the next time your billing cycle restarts.

Note: The new prices below reflect the $10/month base fee, as well.

Plan Private projects Monthly Price Annual Price
Large 50 $499 $4790
Medium 20 $299 $2870
Small 10 $179 $1718
Micro 5 $99 $950
Nano 3 $59 $566
Free 0 $0 $0

Enterprise version

The Enterprise version of Kumu is the right choice for teams that are working with highly sensitive data that should only be accessed through private servers, rather than through Kumu's cloud-based system. Enterprise versions are also a great option for teams that are legally required to store their data in a specific geographic location (Kumu's cloud-based system stores data across the world).

Note that the Enterprise version is not an account or plan, rather, it's a fully separate installation of Kumu. When you have an Enterprise version installed on your servers, you can create unlimited personal and organization accounts within that version, and each account can own unlimited private and public projects.

Enterprise licensing starts at $79/user/month, billed annually, with a minimum of 5 seats—in other words, Enterprise starts at $4,740 annually. Additional seats can be purchased in packs of 5.

To get started with a 45-day free trial of Enterprise, fill our our short inquiry form. If you need with installing, configuring, or upgrading your Enterprise version, check out our full Enterprise guides.

Training and consulting

We get it—sometimes, you want a great-looking map, but you're on a tight schedule and can't learn all the ins and outs of Kumu! Regardless of your account type, you can hire a member of Kumu's core team at any time to provide training and/or consulting services. Our rates are $200 per hour for remote help, and $2,000 per day for onsite help.

To get started with training or consulting, send an email to support@kumu.io.
