About Us

Our Story

Afferent Software started in the UK in 2005. Initially starting out as a Payments Consultancy Company, offering expert advice and payments solutions across the board. We have since grown into a fully-fledged Payments Software Solutions Company, and have expanded by opening up an additional office in Cape Town, South Africa.

After working closely with our consultancy clients, we realised that there were too many difficulties in building, testing and running payment software systems. The current systems weren’t as easy and intuitive as we believed they should be. This encouraged us to come up with a solution!

Specialists in Payments Software Solutions

Our products team now specialises in creating tools that make the building, testing and running of payment switches simpler, more efficient and more intelligent. Offering a technology based payments system that enables higher productivity levels in payments testing and running.

Our service team’s main focus is on building long-lasting partnerships with our clients through intelligent, high quality professional services. We are here for the long-haul and strive to find the best possible payments solutions for your direct needs.
Our vision is to be the first choice for all Payments Testing and Monitoring Solutions, along with offering bespoke payments software to the global market.

We value our staff and know that we can do none of this without them. We care about everyone in the Afferent Software team and want them to enjoy a successful and rewarding career. Our offices, in both the UK and Cape Town, facilitate both a productive and enjoyable work environment.

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.
