Our heritage is rich in being first to market with new products centred around making both commercial operations, student teams, and their customers lives easier and their shared experiences so much more enjoyable.
Our core values
Why are we doing what we're doing and how will we get to the excellence in everything we do.
Let us take you on a journey with us...
We promise, it will be full of innovation, resolutions, problem-solving and other exciting things.
The Kinetic journey began...
The company started with the aim to make event management teams' lives easier and customer experiences more enjoyable. Today we still work with the same aim but look how far we come since 1998!
Revolutionised event management
We cleared paper-filled conference team desks and office filing cabinets with our conferencing management solution, KxConferencing.
Relieved the catering departments
We brought food to the table on time with our catering management solution, KxCatering.
Changed the residential management
We began the summer bedroom revolution with residential bedroom management, KxResidential.
Reformed the way student accommodation ticks
We freed A3 lever-arch files across the UK with purpose-built student accommodation management solution, KxStudent. Then took the student experience to the next level by introducing online applications portal instead of paper student applications. Hello new era!
Did our bit for saving the environment!
We started saving trees, replacing 40-page accommodation contracts with a simple online contracts process. Imagine how many trees been saved in the last 15 years!
Just 8 years since the beginning of the company, we celebrated our 100th customer! Another 13 years later, we now have over 350 customers worldwide.
Took catering management to the next level
We wetted the whistle of education staff and their visitors across the UK with our campus delivered catering online portal! More tea, Sir?
We also started our global journey by launching our operation in USA.
It was a vintage year...
We made orientation days and boring H&S presentations a thing of the past with our online induction process. We also ditched the 9-5 telesales process for non-student bedrooms with our direct booking portal - KxB&B.
Maximised student experience
We kicked-off the year by making stressful arrivals days a thing of the past with mobile Arrivals Passes; saving parents and university staff across the world the anguish of traffic management and unnecessary queuing.
Increased the efficiency of event managers
We made finding space easier with online meeting room finder and availability checker, KxCalendar.
Fully stepped into logistics...
As online shopping accelerated, ‘next-day’ deliveries remain next day and prevent accommodation offices becoming new storage solutions, courtesy of KxParcels.
We became Gen Z-friendly
The new generation has prepared for university and so do we with new online portals allowing students to make requests with KxRequests. Accommodation teams’ inboxes and painful reception experiences become a thing of the past. Wicked!
It's not a "proposal", it's the solution
The commercial competition intensifies but thanks to KxProposals business development teams stay one-step ahead with data-driven proposal generation and analytics. We also celebrated our 300th customer!
Kinetic catapulted to the future
We joined the Volaris Group, providing us with extra strength on the way to being the industry leader.
Revolutionising things for commercial teams
Kinetic saves universities thousands of hours in repetitive strain injury claims as BedBooker does the heavy lifting with a two-way live-interface with over 90 online travel agents.
The desktop ball and chains are removed for commercial operation teams with KxMobile.
Just in time for GDPR horror...
Our superusers are armed in their quest for user happiness, engagement and data safety with KxArchiver. The phrase "being compliant" becomes a reality.
King of student accommodation
We acquired Occam and expanded our student accommodation portfolio with a powerful tool, Room Service. Now we manage student accommodation for over 80% of universities in the UK and Ireland!
We're moving to the cloud!
We launched our brand-new and exciting cloud-based platform - Kinetic Pulse! So our move to the cloud has begun...
What a year! On many levels...
Rothamsted Enterprises became our first customer to join Kinetic Pulse, our brand new cloud-based platform.
Our student wellbeing management solution, Student Life, made a real difference to the student mental health crisis.
Our customers' customer's experience... Taken to the next level!
We've revolutionised student payment management with the launch of KxPayments, including the first Open Banking solution for the higher education sector.
We've then taken your customer's experience to the next level by delivering your customer-facing event booking portal, Customer Hub.
...stay tuned and we'll take you to the future with Kinetic!
