Use Cases

How Kitchen helps

Shared Inbox

Manage project communications efficiently

Shared inbox helps you stay on top of every update, question, request, and compliment that comes your way. It's the single source of truth for all your client communications.

Why it's better than email:
  • Share or jump into any project conversation, without the CC/BCC dance.
  • Delegate communication to your team while keeping an eye on everything.
  • Follow just a single thread per project, not hundreds of email messages.

"Switching to Kitchen was such a relief for us. We now feel that client communication is no longer a bottleneck for our company, because all important aspects of any project are clearly visible for the whole team."

Naim | Product Manager @ In-House Team

Payments

Track payments easily and get paid securely

No need to bounce around tabs and mess with spreadsheets. Kitchen lets you and your team bill and track payments where all project communication is happening.

Why it's better:
  • Clients can see what they’ve paid or owe and fulfill payments with a click.
  • Connect your payment gateway to get instant payments from clients.
  • Sync payments with your invoicing tool from/to Kitchen and let clients download invoices.
Works seamlessly with:

"The biggest benefit of Kitchen for us was the billing module - we no longer need to track payments in a separate accounting system because everything syncs automatically and is easily traceable."

Dave | General Manager @ MailBakery

Deliverables

Hand off final files only after clients pay

Wrap up projects safely and risk-free. Kitchen lets you protect your final deliverables behind a paywall, so clients can only access them after they’ve paid in full.

"We switched from a generic support system to Kitchen because it comes with a streamlined process for quoting, payment, and paywalled downloads."

Nikolay | Master Illustrator @ GraphicMama Studio
