Keypro was founded in 1995 by people who specialize in geographical information and CAD systems. Today Keypro employs over 70 geographical information system professionals in Joensuu and Vantaa, Finland.
Since the very beginning we have had a different vision how network information should be made available and operated. Be it water pipes, power lines, telecom lines, sewer lines or any other geographically map-able asset, keeping the network information up to date should be easy and accessible.
Why couldn’t you merge network planning, building and operating phases under one single system?
Why couldn’t you run the planning tools from web browser like you operate so many other business tools?
Why couldn’t you modify your network plan directly from building site, even directly from the excavator?
Yes, there is no reason why you could not. And these are the challenges Keypro helps you to solve.

In fact, Keypro has pioneered with fully web based, utility specific, professional network planning and operation tools that provide full function in any modern web browser.
