Benefits of Membership
Who are we?
The Keal System Users (KSU) group is a Canada-wide user group, established in 1999 to promote and encourage the free exchange of information between users of the Keal Technology family of broker management products. In 2012, the name changed to Keal System Users (KSU) to accurately reflect our membership and purpose. The KSU board of directors is comprised of brokers from across Canada who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the group.
