Coming soon: A new look for Kitomba

10 Oct 2018 by Kitomba

We’re excited to announce that Kitomba’s getting a facelift and its new look will be released very soon!

Everyday you inspire us with your ability to give your clients fresh new looks and have them leave your salon, spa or clinic feeling amazing. And we felt Kitomba needed some of that TLC too.

What’s changing?

Kitomba’s refreshed look has been achieved with some simple design changes, new colours and icons. This means Kitomba looks cleaner, simpler and more consistent with Kitomba 1.  

While you’ll certainly notice the difference, we haven’t changed how features work or how you find them. It’s still Kitomba, just a better looking version, so you should be able to get on with your day without any problems!  

Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect:

When’s it happening?

We’ll start rolling out the new look Kitomba next week! We’re just giving you a heads up so you’re not too surprised when you see some changes.

Remember, like other Kitomba releases, it could take a few weeks before you receive the new look.  

What do you need to do?

Tell everyone in your team! It’s important everyone knows there will be a change. You could:

  • Announce it at your team meeting,
  • post in your Facebook group chat,
  • send your staff an email,
  • or write it on a post it note and stick it to your salons computer.

Keep an eye on your emails, texts and in Kitomba over the coming weeks as we’ll give you more information and remind you to expect the new look Kitomba.

  1. Hi, the new look looks great. I wanted to give some feedback regarding staff capabilities that maybe you could change going forward. When a new team member joins it’s a real pain having to go through the capabilities and untick any treatments they will not be doing. It would be so much easier to tick the treatments they will be doing. When we have new treatments to our menu kitomba automatically ticks every staff member as being capable of doing the treatment. Again so much easier to be able to tick this yourself. I have 15 to 20 team members and a huge treatment menu, this can be very time consuming.
    Thanks for listening.

  2. Appreciate the advice but….. it would be more professional to prove a ‘briefing sheet’ (change on a page) so that staff can be properly briefed. The sneak peak note doesn’t cut it. Please send through a proper brief that can be conveyed to staff AHEAD of the changes being rolled out.

    • Hi Irene, we’ll be sending more information before you receive this update which will include some key before and after details which you could share with your team. The changes are entirely cosmetic and won’t change the way you do anything in Kitomba or where you find it. This means that everyone should be able to use Kitomba just as they did before the change.

  3. hi guys,
    would love to see add new staff member inc a timetable from kitomba 1 rather than doing it all manually. also, would love for more detailed client cards inc signatures or syncing with canva forms…saves paper forms. thank you

    • Hi Natalie, thanks for your feedback – we really love hearing from our customers! It is possible to add a new staff member from Kitomba 1 but as you know, you would then have to set up their timetable in Kitomba. It’d be great if you could add your requests to the Kitomba Community Feature Requests so we can take your requests into consideration as we plan future development.

  4. i would love to be able to change invoices too on K1 before i process wages to ensure invoices are put under correct designated stylist

  5. Hi
    We’re all looking forward to the new look!
    As I have many clients who like book through for the year; it would be great to be able to select a “repeat” option for weekly, fortnightly, monthly, 6weekly…just a thought :)
    Cheers Penelope

  6. Agree with Penelope Oct 10th 80 %of my clients have permanent appt for the year very laborious booking weekly and 4-5 weeks clients all year cheers

  7. Hi Team =)
    I don’t suppose the new look could also include the red time line that K1 has ?! It makes it easier to see exactly where you’re at on the schedule….
    And also if the text area for notes on voucher sales / redemption could be made a lot bigger or re-sizeable?! It’s very hard to read the notes within such a small text area!

    Thanks! =)
