Innovation and experience
for over 20 years

Kinetic was founded in 1998 with one aim: To develop the most innovative software to help university accommodation and conferencing teams deliver the best student and customer experiences possible.

Fast forward 20 years, and we are now the technology partner of choice to the worlds' leading universities and colleges. We supply mission-critical software for over 350 customers, from the University of Nevada Las Vegas to Monash in Australia... Not to mention over 80% of universities in the UK.

Since 2015, Kinetic has been part of the Volaris Group. Volaris help strengthen and grow vertical market software companies so, like Kinetic, they become leaders in their industry.

Wall-to-wall talent

Building a software platform as innovative and comprehensive as Kx takes talent, and lots of it. At Kinetic we're proud of every single member of our weird and wonderful team. Every single one is self-motivated, ambitious and forward-thinking and knows how to get stuff done in a changing and exciting a market.
