My steadfast belief is that innovation only occurs when the customer sees the benefit… This has always been my grounding philosophy of the company and one that is slowly changing the rules of the South African informal retail industry. Since inception, A2Pay has developed a sound technological platform to launch a highly scalable and influential business. I believe that creating wealth through social economic development is a just cause which has always been closed to my heart where our main aim is to create sustainable businesses which can thrive in the South African economy. These are values which were fully aligned with the company’s philosophy.
It’s often mentioned that through recent Globalisation, communities have lost out to more formal global businesses due to their sophistication and so called “expertise”. By creating mini-economic ecosystems within our local communities, we hope to once again empower these local economies.
I thoroughly look forward to our next few years
Bert Roux - CEO of A2pay
A2Pay was founded in 2009 by Bert Roux and boasts a wide array of technical, commercial and entrepreneurial expertise in remote, vending, cash management & wholesale trading platforms. A2Pay understand the unique challenges of working on the African continent and have therefore paid special attention to ensuring that the products and systems offer a high level of functionality yet remain intuitively simple and reliable. The technology is one of the business’s major strengths in that it uses ground-breaking mobile and fixed wireless retail technology to deliver the products and services in a cost effective manner with an easy-to-access platform.
The primary mission has been to create sustainable employment across South Africa. This has been achieved through empowering small, medium and micro retailers, while harnessing and growing the talent and leadership abilities of these entrepreneurs.
