Since its earliest days, Keystone began its focus on developing comprehensive and integrated information management systems for our present markets of K-12 public education and local government administration.
The result is that a tremendous amount of thought, planning, design and ‘real life’ usage, support each application software product that Keystone markets today.
Today’s product sets are comprehensive, mature, and proven in design and function. And Keystone’s approach to the steady progress of technology has been to evaluate and incorporate useful new technologies without sacrificing mature and proven business logic. Thereby ours, and our clients’ long term investments in software, process and knowledge, have proven to be a rock solid and cost effective investment. Long time clients (some of which go back with us to the first releases in the late 1970s), have been able to progress with us to new platforms and technologies over the years, without sacrificing the foundational benefits of the products’ design.
Most of the current products have grown through several major releases, with core business logic being proven on multiple system platforms and through dozens of actual implementations.
Keystone continues to author its software with full time, U.S. based employees, who interact with our clients in person, both individually, and through our involvement with our active users’ group associations.
