Custom Keyboards and Other Keyboard Products

Any organization utilizing workstations dedicated to a specific task can greatly benefit from Synctronics' custom keyboards, keycaps, or keyboard accessories.

The last time you were standing at an airline counter you may have noticed that the keycaps on the agent's keyboard were color-coded and labeled. Airline ticket agents are able to process hundreds of travelers in short amounts of time because of the increased productivity and efficiency of custom keyboards, colored keys, key overlays, and key templates.

Increased Profitability: Color-coded, function-specific keys speed task completion, reduce errors, and increase productivity.

Reduced Training Time: New employees become proficient in your methods quickly and easily. Frustration is reduced and retention is increased.

Long-term Flexibility: As your company's needs evolve, so can your customized keyboards and key sets. Custom keyboards allow you to cost-effectively update your hardware to meet changing conditions.

Dependability: Synctronics stands behind our products and stands alone in guaranteeing all of our keys for the life of the keyboards.
