Innovation and experience
for over 20 years

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.
