Keystroke was founded in 1994, but rapidly expanded and diversified over the years until it was necessary to create the Keystroke Group to serve as a parent company for our many separate independent divisions.

These divisions offer products & services in the areas of CRM and Project Management, but the one we're most excited to announce today is the formation of our new marketing division called KQD – which stands for Keystroke Quality Designs.

Few of our customers today are aware that “Keystroke Quality Designs” was actually our original company name back in the early days before giving way to simply Keystroke.

If that happens, you might receive a letter from a company telling you to either pay to license it or remove it from usage, or face legal repercussions. So you remove it from your site and hope that is the end of it. In many cases, that is the end—but what if it isn’t?
