Our customers, people, products and growth caught the attention of Jonas Software (ranked in the top 100 software companies in the world) and in September we decided to join their group. This is great news for everyone as it means we'll benefit from their experience as we continue to innovate and support you under our much loved Kitomba brand.

2005

The company and the team grew, as did our reputation in the industry. Our little office was bursting at the seams and we were out of space for desks, so the broom cupboard it was for one lucky person! Even luckier when we took the doors off.

Planning & strategy

2004

This was the year Kitomba’s first employee skateboarded into the company and decided to ‘secretly’ build a game in Kitomba (you can still play the game today).

Planning & strategy

2003

About 14 months later, Al Quinn, an adventure sports fanatic, ex-cycle courier and talented software maestro, decided to join Tom at Magic Pulse. Tom and Al quickly saw the industry needed more than just a text message service and started developing a product they called ‘Kitomba’, a full salon and spa management system.

Planning & strategy

2002

In his bedroom, Tom Murphy, a budding entrepreneur and engineer by training, founded a company called Magic Pulse, which started out providing a text message service to salons and spas. The bedroom didn’t last long and Tom soon moved to a small office in the Wellington Botanic Gardens.
