What is Kitchen?
Kitchen provides your team and clients with a new easy way to collaborate on projects in one organized place. It's the system that comes prior your project management tools and sets the communication with clients apart from the internal project management.
What problems does Kitchen solve?
Kitchen is designed to solve communication problems that growing client service business face with their clients.
Firstly, Kitchen unifies communication, file sharing, progress tracking, payments, etc. into one system… making it convenient and easy for your clients to keep up with the project's updates.
Secondly, it streamlines your communication with a simple and effective todo-like system. This allows you to keep track of who is leading a project conversation, who's participating, when you should reply, who has not replied, how many projects need a reply, how many projects have been replied, when to follow up, etc.
Does this replace project management tools such as Trello / Basecamp / Jira?
No. Kitchen aims to do one thing well: client communication. Project management tools are an important part of your workflow, and they should be used internally.
How much does it cost?
We grant free access to all participants in the early betа. After the official release, you can get Kitchen for only $29 / month per User.
What is the story of Kitchen?
Only a few years ago, we used email for client communication just like any other growing web dev agency would. We had just one person that communicated with clients and things were running smoothly. However, the more happy clients we had, the more project requests we received. So, putting one more person in charge of communication was a natural decision. With more effort, we somehow managed to keep things up...continue reading
Soon after, things started to get messy. At that point we realized that email couldn't handle the job. If we wanted to grow, we had to come up with something better, something that our clients would use, something that could and would organize our communication… for good.
Traditional support systems or project management tools were not an option. We wanted to collaborate with clients, not just communicate. We wanted to have a separate communication tool just for this job - client communication & collaboration. We wanted to add as many of our team members to any project conversation and we wanted our clients to be able to do the same.
So, after a few months of development, Kitchen was born. It wasn't long before we eventually reached our “aha” moment - the moment we realized that this system served its purpose perfectly. Adding co-workers was easy peasy, no more email forwards, forgotten clients, and questions like “Is this for me or for someone else?”. And the best part was our clients were actually using it.
Nowadays, we use it to process more than 15k messages a month with fewer people. We've been able to complete more than 42k projects to date. It helped us grow from 10 to 100+ people.
After numerous requests from our clients, we finally decided to release it. Hope you like it.
