Kifu v1.0 Released

Noverse LLC (my company) and the The Shukai Company LLC, is very pleased to announce that Kifu v1.0.0 has shipped. And our first customers are already happily using Kifu in production. We want to thank all our beta testers and beta clients for testing Kifu and helping us make such a great product.

Kifu is an intuitive, easy-to-use software product for small non-profits and community organizations to easily manage their community and its events. Kifu has a comprehensive people database and implements membership, communications, billing, statements, payments, and donations, all in a single integrated environment available on the web. For more see the Kifu web site and play with the demo.

But we’re not stopping or even slowing down. We have the core platform, and we know it works. We also have many, many ideas and features we wish to add to help you maximize the value you get from Kifu in your small non-profit. We’re starting on the v1.1 tasks today, we have a v1.2 plan and lots, lots more to come.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing the remainder of our beta customers on board, and adding new customers that registered during the beta. We believe that it’s important to ensure that all new customers have a pleasant first experience with Kifu, so we’re doing the migrations for them first. Once that backlog is cleared, we’ll enable online sign-up for new clients.
