Universities improve operational efficiency with the latest software from Kinetic Solutions

Following consultation with universities Kinetic Solutions, the UK’s leading specialist provider of student accommodation, conference and hospitality management software has introduced a new product, KxInspections to assist in delivering greater operational efficiency that could potentially help universities to achieve competitive advantage.

KxInspections is bedroom inventory control software that completely automates traditionally paper based processes, capturing accurate information in a fraction of the time and streamlining charges and refunds with automated uploading of data.

Many universities in the UK, including Edinburgh and Kent have already proactively sought to improve efficiency, utilising the successful, established KxStudent software from Kinetic Solutions which manages the entire student housing process, updating students’ records and rooms.

KxInspections synchronises directly into the back office KxStudent system, offering universities the most comprehensive student accommodation software solution available, with tangible results including large resource savings achievable from the post inspection administration process.

One of the first organisations to integrate this solution is specialist student accommodation provider Liberty Living, provider to more than 30 of the UK’s most prestigious universities.

Andrew Brewer, financial and systems controller for Liberty Living comments; -We chose to work with Kinetic Solutions to develop the room inspections software based on their understanding of our business, our historical relationship, the integration capabilities with the established suite of Kinetic software and their innovative approach of developing solutions that have real commercial benefit.

Some of the key features of KxInspections that provide greater efficiency, include the ability for inspections to be automatically generated if students move rooms and sending automated correspondence immediately following an inspection. There is a function to track the overall condition of inventory stock and the inspection status can be set at ‘pending’ if further assessment is required.

Charges and refunds are streamlined with automated uploading of data so that damage charges can be automatically deducted from deposit payments and deposit refunds can be made faster and more efficiently. From both the university and the student perspective this is obviously enormously appealing.

Chris Wildsmith, managing director of Kinetic Solutions is delighted by the response to KxInspections, commenting; -For over 14 years we have been integral to our clients businesses, a trusted partner developing real solutions that deliver real impact. We listened to our customers who were having problems with managing inspections and inventory, worked with them to develop the product and were able to launch within six months.

KxInspections liberates universities to spend even less time on administration and more on improving the student experience, which ultimately enhances the reputation of the university.
