Cltch started as a personal project by Kinova to overhaul their website’s incubator records page with a badly needed tech upgrade. This project expanded to create a basic Ball Python inventory system for Kinova. As that objective took shape, the power and simplicity of it surprised the team! We started to see how it could be a fantastic tool for breeders and hobbyists everywhere.
In May 2021 Kinova and the development team met for a brainstorming session in Washington DC. Over 6 hours, we hammered out a plan of what Cltch could become and how to share it with the entire Ball Python community! Now here we are – a work in progress with big goals.
Cltch enables you to manage your Ball Python collection, track genetics, and share your work with the world. We are focused on simplicity and deep technology so you can spend your time making snakes, not spreadsheets. When you have questions about your collection, lineage, or genetics or want to plan your future, Cltch is available wherever you are.
Cltch was built to keep the user experience as simple as possible while also tackling the unique challenges of increasing genetic complexity. With Ball Python combos becoming ever more complicated, tracking genetics accurately by incorporating lineage information and genetic shed testing is critical. To do this well, the program must be intricate behind the scenes but simple to the user. We’ve chosen to leave animal care to you. We don’t track sheds, feeding, or cleaning.
No! To order genetic testing, just create a free account and order your test – you do not need a paid account to get started.
Feedback from users is critical to our success. You may find a bug or error that others haven’t found, or have suggestions that are important to YOUR needs! We have a long roadmap of improvements and ideas to improve Cltch, but everyone has unique collection and use requirements. We would love your feedback on what would make Cltch more valuable to you.
