Fantastic Support

Focus on understanding each organization

At Keystone, we pride ourselves on the support that we provide. Our philosophy is based on understanding you, and going the extra step to understand how to best solve your problems.

The Colorado Talking Book Library has worked with Keystone and their great employees for over 15 years. They have worked with us to design several key features in KLAS that helped our library be more efficient. Their staff turnover is very low so there is real institutional knowledge which makes it easier to problem solve. It is great to work with the same folks over the years. They must be doing something right if people like working there!

Director - Colorado Talking Book Library

In 2019 GLASS was the first KLAS library to transition to fully serving our patrons with duplication on demand using the NLS Gutenburg equipment. It is not always fun to be on the bloody edge of the cutting knife when implementing new technologies, but our library's transition went smoothly. NLS and Keystone worked together to make this fundamental change in service delivery as seamless as possible. Our patrons are happy and our staff would never go back to the old way of doing business. 2019 was a great year for GLASS and its patrons.

I have been working with Keystone, Inc. for several years at an Instructional Resource Center. Keystone’s dedication to their product, prompt customer service, and willingness to partner with us have helped to customize the KLAS software to create a useful tool in our work. Keystone staff have been helpful and knowledgeable during each step of the development, installation, and support phases of the system. Their years of experience with Instructional Resources Centers and Talking Book Libraries around the country have provided a unique opportunity to see various ways in which we can implement the software more efficiently.
