AFS was founded in 1985 as a software provider focused on helping food and beverage distributors and wholesalers automate complex tasks with an ERP system, which was developed exclusively for the industry. Starting in 2005, AFS began building out its capabilities to provide niche solutions, such as a warehouse management system from Motek, for niche segments, including seafood processing and foodservice manufacturing, within the food and beverage industry.

 

Over the next 10 years, AFS added 13 new solutions to its portfolio with the goal of supporting manufacturers, distributors, sales agencies and retailers across the value chain. Solutions included trade promotion management from MEI, Synectics and Answer Systems, retail execution and direct store delivery from Visicom, Quofore, The Pop Company and Ross Computer Systems, and sales agency management from Becton-schantz.

 

In 2019, AFS Technologies (AFS) and Exceedra announced the merger of their business operations to offer global Integrated Business Planning and Trade Promotion Management/Optimization solutions to the Consumer Goods market. AFS acquired the Exceedra shares and the merged business began to operate under the Exceedra brand as a division of AFS Technologies.
