2K19 Year in Review


Wow, 2019 has been a big year for us! We’ve had a record year of growth, from new hires to our biggest deal yet. We’re so excited to see what 2020 is going to bring, but as we prepare for our next biggest year, we’re reflecting on everything that happened in 2019.

Our bookclub is completely coworker led and helps grow our team’s skills on a weekly basis.

The Women of KEYSYS make up a large part of our team. They meet once a month to eat and learn new skills together. Photography, design, and personality types have been the favorite subjects so far. 

Night Under the Big Top

Glenwood’s annual event is always a good excuse to dress up and support the local charity

KEYSYS in the Courtyard

On the third Thursday of every month, we end our day a little early to hang out with coworkers, enjoy snacks, drinks, and corn hole.

KEYSYS Tailgate

Each year we partner with our friends over at Micropulse to host an Alabama Football Tailgate for our clients and team mates

As JB says “We’re a t-shirt company with a software problem.”
