We offer 3 licencing options – you can purchase access to a single module, a module series or to all modules.
Each option includes initial user licences. Additional users can be added at any time for $15 each. Both options are a once only payment and you can access the training content as many times as you like with no time restrictions and no ongoing payment. That’s right, no ongoing subscription payments.
Each option also include access to our scheduling and reporting features.
To explore our licencing options, click here.
All licenses are provided for one organisation only. If users of a different organisation wish to view the training videos then a separate account must be purchased.
We also offer the option to integrate Canity into a Learning Management System (LMS). LMS pricing options can be found here.
You can pay using either Visa, Mastercard, Amex or PayPal for immediate access to Canity. You will be provided with a tax invoice after payment is processed.
Alternatively, you can choose our Raise a Purchase Order option; we will email you a tax invoice and you can pay via electronic bank transfer. Your Canity account will be activated within 48 hours of payment receipt if you select this option.

Canity is an Australian product. On some occasions, credit card providers block international transactions. This may be happening to you. If you contact your credit card provider and authorise the transaction, your next attempt should be processed successfully.
Please note that Canity is owned by Messages On Hold Australia Pty Ltd and this may appear as the billing entity on your credit card transaction.

There are plenty of reasons every business should be investing in online training for their team. If your team haven’t been trained in how to deal with potential & current customers over the phone, it’s likely they aren’t painting your business in the best possible light.

Yes! When logged in as an administrator, you can deselect videos from any module. To do this, please select Training Library from the left navigation menu and select your chosen module. Underneath the large video there is an eye icon on the right hand side of your screen. Select this icon and then click the x in the top right corner of the video thumbnails you would like to remove from the module you are scheduling. Then click on the eye icon again.
This change will deselect videos for all users, including those in any sub-admin accounts. To add back the videos simply click on the eye icon again and chose the + button on the video you wish to add back in.
Note that deselecting videos simply removes them from the module assigned to your team for training. These videos remain available for the administrator who can chose to include them again at any time.
Absolutely! All of Canity’s videos have both English and Chinese subtitles. To turn on subtitles, simply click the Closed Captions – CC – button in the bottom-right corner of the video player. From there, all you have to do is choose your preferred language and you’re good to go.
After you select the training videos you would like your team to watch, we will send an email letting them know it’s time to train. This email will direct your team to login to their User Dashboard, where training will be waiting for them in the Scheduled Training section.
Accessed through the User Dashboard, our video-based training is completely online, allowing your team to train at any time with an internet-connected device. The User Dashboard also offers access to interactive quizzes, worksheets and downloadable content.

Certificates of Achievement are available for the training administrator to download from within the MyCanity Dashboard resources page. The certificates will first need to be customised with the user/member’s name, your company name and the date. You can then either save the document and send it to the user, or print it and provide it to them.

Our initial animation approach in developing our Canity characters was to give them no skin tone. Whilst this was easier and cheaper for us, it unfortunately meant they all ended up looking “white”.
We’ve taken steps to correct this in our newer modules by adding skin tones to all our characters and further developing characters to reflect different ethnic backgrounds and races, as well as including characters with disabilities.
We’ve based these Canity characters on our own development team. Whilst we are based in Australia, our team contains a broad mix of people born not only in Australia but in South America, Asia, and Europe, so now our characters look a lot more like us! If you have any suggestions about how we can further develop our characters we’d love to hear from you.
