With KEYFAST non-programmers create data entry forms and edit checks in a matter of minutes. The system includes all usual editing capabilities of dedicated hardware solutions. In addition, KEYFAST can validate user input against master files and databases.

Catching incorrect data at the time of input reduces the amount of time spent on error-corrections and re-runs. Many customers decide not to key-verify selected fields after they passed the extensive KEYFAST edit checks. Output data is formatted by KEYFAST identical to the records created with legacy systems. Applications can gradually be converted to KEYFAST without relying on mainframe programmers.
One main advantage of KEYFAST is its incredible speed and ease of use. Any person familiar with a mainframe terminal or PC can input data into KEYFAST. You may decide to involve certain end-users during peak periods, and have them input their own data after giving them only a brief introduction.
