Brief History

Who We Are

Originally born in the "Keystone state" of Pennsylvania, founded in 1975, Keystone has partnered with customers, professionals in public sector administration, to build enterprise-wide information management solutions, based on sound and reliable design. Like the critically positioned keystone of the Roman arch, Keystone supports the convergence of a wide array of available technologies, with the practical daily needs of our customers’ business operations.

Our product design has proven enduring, providing a strong investment for our customers with straight-forward upgrade paths that preserve legacy data and business processes; and yet our products continuously evolve, making use of new advances in platforms and technologies. We invite you to learn more about Keystone, our products, our services, and our customers, with whom we have been building sound, enduring, and reliable systems for over forty years.
