Kinaki will be faster!

(8.5.2017)
Our current hosting works great; however, as Kinaki grows and we have more than doubled the number of people using Kinaki everyday during past 12 months, we plan to scale-up to much faster, more secure and scale-able environment. In weeks to come, we will announce to our users the day of the big move and how the move will looks like for current Kinaki users. But don't worry, you don't need to pack anything! We will do all the hard work and you can be only looking forward for much faster Kinaki.

After the move, Kinaki and its data will be based in Canada, on the industry-top quality servers.
Stay tuned for more updates.

(8.5.2017)
During past two years, Kink team was constantly working on small improvements. We are happy to announce that Kinaki, version 5.6 is now live and our users can enjoy many small improvements and faster Kinaki.

Among many of the improvements:
1) FAQ section on the Kinaki website, providing many answers to questions you may ave about Kinaki.
2) Small charts in Reports can be now set to measure UP or DOWN, meaning that for some indicator, we try to reduce number of people (e.g. % of children with Malaria (DOWN)); while for other indicator, we want to increase the number (e.g. % of children eating balanced diet).
