Feature release: New Kitomba POS and more…

2 Aug 2013 by Kitomba

Happy days! We’ve made some improvements to Kitomba which will be rolled out to all Kitomba customers over the next 2 weeks. Kitomba’s point-of-sale (POS) screen has been given a new facelift and we’ve introduced a prompt asking you to assign client genders to help tidy up your database. Read on to learn more about these improvements.

Kitomba’s Point-of-Sale (POS) screen has received a facelift. In the next two weeks all Kitomba customers will be rolled over to this new version. We understand change can be scary so if you don’t love the new POS you can switch back to the traditional version. But we highly recommend you stick with the new version – it’s awesome!

We’ll automatically change you over to the new POS screen in the coming 2 weeks. The new ‘Make Sale’ tab will not automatically change. If you would like the new ”Make Sale’ tab follow these instructions and start using it today!

New POS screen features:
1. There is a new ‘Make Sale’ tab for faster checkouts – great for walk-ins and heavy retail

2. Client details will appear on every invoice

3. The payments area is now much larger

4. We’ve added a big green ‘Commit’ button that’s way more visible.

Having good client data is important when you want to run targeted marketing and to understand and report accurately on your client data. The new gender prompt is an easy way of cleaning up your data a little bit at a time.

How does it work?
When you see a client out from an appointment, if their gender has not been selected Kitomba will prompt you for one. It only takes a second (and it means you’ll be able to communicate more effectively with these clients from now on).


  • Kitomba’s Point-of-Sales (POS) screen has been given a facelift
  • Kitomba’s new ‘Make Sale’ tab makes walk-in sales fast!
  • Ensure your data is accurate and clean with the new gender assigning prompt

If you have any questions, or need any help, our support team is available 24/6.
