         UPGRADING TO KEYPRIME

What, Why, When, How and Who?  


What is it?

KEYPrime is Landmark Systems' latest addition to the KEY brand of accounting and property software.  Released in 2012, Landmark is now supporting over one third of its existing KEY32 customers who have upgraded to take advantage of the latest technology.   December 2014 saw the highest number of conversions in any one month following the regional Winter Training Workshops at which KEYPrime took centre stage.     New Landmark customers are choosing KEYPrime too as the right answer for their management needs.

Why should I upgrade?

The KEY32 suite of programs is becoming technically challenged and has a finite lifespan; the underlying structures are now 20 years old and as we all know technology moves on at an ever-increasing pace. The ‘look and feel’ of KEYPrime is consistent with the latest Microsoft products - clear and customisable.  The most popular product features are the user-defined screen layouts and enhanced drill down facilities.

When should I upgrade?

We will continue to support KEY32 products until 2017 but the golden rule is to PLAN AHEAD and allocate some time in 2015 to discussing with us your data conversion linked to your management objectives.  We can guide you through the process, plan the most appropriate timing for your business, eg year end, and help you to choose from the 3 conversion options.
