Global Head of Self-Service ATMs

Highly recommend their software and services

We have been using the Afferent Software simulator tools for the development and testing of our ATM-driving Postilion platform since 2013. The tools have been invaluable in helping us to rapidly develop and test the various ATM models deployed within our ATM estate, both in terms of regression testing when updates are applied to our Postilion servers, as well as for testing new functionality we develop on the Postilion platform. The tools are intuitive to use and Afferent Software have been very supportive of enhancements to the software to accommodate our business requirements. I would highly recommend their software and services.
