Carol Thomas

Accommodation Services Manager | University of Arts London

UAL’s accommodation portfolio has grown and diversified over the years and Kinetic have been supporting us to deliver a responsive service, which in turn enhanced the student experience. Students are able to carry out many tasks ranging from applying for accommodation through to making service requests. The student journey goes beyond the normal 9 - 5 business hours and we needed a system that would keep working 24/7. Thanks to Kx, we are able to deliver a quality service to our students, who are our number one priority.

The support available from Kinetic and their understanding of us as a university and of the sector, in general, is what makes them stand out. They understand the complexities within an institution and the importance to be hitting the ground running with minimal issues once we were live. This was a successful process thanks to Kinetic's support, understanding of us as a university and of the sector in general.
