Committed to your marketing success

Our story began over 35 years ago, and we remain true to the same core beliefs today: creating and building industry-leading software to speedily convert customer data into actionable information.

Proud history, exciting future

Technology has changed dramatically since we first started. But our ethos remains the same. We design groundbreaking technologies to help you spend more time focusing on what you do best. So while we're proud of our past and what we've achieved, we never sit still. We're committed to being at the forefront of innovative solutions and great design to help you master your customer base and your marketplace. 

Pioneers in actionable customer data

At Apteco, it's just as much about the people as it is the technology. We help you understand your customers, and give you the tools to foster powerful relationships. That's why we recognise and reward loyalty, right across our colleagues, customers, partners, and users. Because we understand that the best results come from genuine partnerships.
