As of September 1st, 2013, Kinetic Software is an accepted member of the Ellucian community partner program. As a partner, Kinetic shares the common goal of a commitment to deliver quality solutions to higher education institutions. The community relationship also opens up other avenues of cooperation. For Kinetic, it is the ability to integrate Ellucian's Banner Finance with our Kx software solutions.
Are you allowed to schedule classrooms for events? How do you request use of those classrooms? Whether you have to wait until the academic schedule is completed, or are booking simultaneously with the Registrar, Kinetic has a classroom scheduling interface that automatically updates the information you need on availability of space. The interface can be a one-way stream from the Registrar to Kx, or a two-way capture of data from the other system and Kx. Either way, you get the information necessary to make the right booking decision.
Introducing the latest version of KxCalendar!
The ePoS – Electronic Point of Sale – interface dynamically transfers charges to a client’s account during their stay. When a guest uses your POS system to take advantage of the amenities you offer; bars, restaurants, non-inclusive activities, shopping, the EPoS interface funnels the charges back through the Kx system onto your guest's account. The charges can be sent to the master bill, or broken out as add on charges to an individual group member. Kx keeps track of each transaction, and settles the bill accurately at the end of the stay. Kinetic provides the interface and works with the POS provider to integrate the information transfer to Kx.
One of the optional Kx interfaces that does not get enough attention is the Key Card interface. This simple option matches a room allocation in KxResidential to the associated guest and initiates the cards for the door locks at check-in. By providing real-time management of key allocation, check-in during peak arrival times is faster and your staff is able to add another layer of customer service to its accommodation management.
All good organizations continuously search for new methods to streamline operations. Kinetic Software has designed a number of application resources that work in conjunction with our products to do just that. One of those products, KxFinancial, was conceived to make the financial reporting process in a Kx environment as efficient as possible while improving the accuracy of the figures reported.
Kinetic is planning two free demos for the new, internal calendar products introduced this year, KxEvent Calendar and KxBedroom Calendar. We will be hosting the demos on April 24th and April 25th.

Introducing the newest version of KxCalendar!
The release of the new look, web-based Kx Calendar is just around the corner. This year's Kx User Conference also unveiled two internal calendar options that will be available in the coming months as well, the KxEvent Calendar and the KxBedroom Calendar. Both bring enhanced functionality to Kx.
In the midst of the busiest time of year, the last thing anyone is thinking about is their processes. The goal is to manage the work in the easiest way possible. Our Kx Health Check is designed to help you get the most out of your Kx system. We can give you a detailed analysis of the key elements in your daily management of conferences, events and accommodations. The complete Kx Health Check involves a database review and analysis, a business process review with staff, shadowing a department or staff member on-site, and a full summary of findings with recommendations report at the end.
