KEYSYS is a full-service software and web development company headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.

Our focus is on our client's success and has been since our founding in 2007. Our clients include individuals, businesses, and nonprofits from across the country. 

KEYSYS is composed of 21 co-workers with varying technical skill sets. We recruit top technical talent by offering uncommon benefits and a productive work environment. We believe people work at their best when they are valued and respected. 

We are not a start-up, nor do we rely upon capital from fundraising or investors. We are only beholden to our clients' satisfaction and our co-worker morale.

If you're ready to build something great with us then let's talk!


We strive to keep our clients "in the know." Most of our projects are managed on weekly sprints with client showcases. We manage projects based on agile/scrum which we think contributes to clear, timely communication with our clients.

Our core competency is software. Our clients count on us to bring expertise and leadership to them so they get the full value of their investment in us. Our in-depth knowledge of software development creates a responsibility for us to bring possibilities and ideas to our clients' attention.  

When a client or prospect is considering investment in a software solution, it's important that he or she has accurate and complete information. We love to build software, but if building a custom solution is not the right fit, we'll say so. If we can help you avoid re-writing an application with a simple or intermediate fix, we will make that suggestion. 

Remembering to bring common sense to the table when trying to solve a complex business or technical problem is not as easy as it would seem. Our structure allows for developers to collaborate, which is important when an outside perspective is needed to re-center our efforts on a foundation of common sense. 

Simplicity and common sense work closely together. Simple solutions require thoughtfulness, and a deep understanding how technology can relate to, and support, business. We've all experienced overwrought software; we commit to focusing on clients' needs and straight-forward solutions.

We don't employ condescending nerds at KEYSYS. We are professional consultants who understand that it's our job to know software, so our clients can focus on their expertise. We routinely tell our consultants that we may know more about software, but our clients can run circles around us in law, distribution, health care, etc. Everyone is an expert at something; there is no room for condescendence or arrogance.

Ever been in a meeting with someone and it's been all about them? How big their company is, how fast they're growing, how awesome their building is? You want to work with someone focused on how big your company can be, how efficiently you can manage it, and how much growth you can support and manage. At KEYSYS, we've experienced modest growth by focusing on your bottom line, not ours.

Mistakes happen. Our first response in situations that have gone bad is to force ourselves to honestly assess our role and responsibility, accept it, and try to make it right. Covering things up, and deflecting blame are poison for relationships and software projects. Our clients want a partner who will work with them, and stand tall when the situation arises.
