Starting in 1983 as a home-based business in Scotland, AFD began life providing office and computer equipment and maintaining charity databases – especially their mailing lists. This naturally progressed into the supply of both computer systems and computer training to the charity sector in 1985.
Following rapid expansion, the business needed a new base from which to expand and grow, so relocated to Ramsey in the Isle of Man in 1997. 2015 saw the move to the current head office, situated at the 25-acre Mountain View Innovation Centre located just outside Ramsey, owned and developed by the AFD Group., which provides robust and resilient infrastructure for the core business and a range of other businesses, including kindergarden, bistro plus venues and event spaces for up to 1,300 guests.
Today, AFD Software serves some of the UK’s largest (and smallest) organisations across every sector with a host of solutions that validate Name, Address, Email, Phone and Bank data within business-critical systems and applications.
