Developer Free Integrations

AFD Software's Postcode Evolution (PCE) service is a lightning fast API that searches and retrieves addresses from large address databases such as the Royal Mail’s Postcode Address File (PAF). Here are just a few plugins we support.


We have also built Robot. Robot technology was designed by the Devs at AFD to overcome integration barriers for almost any desktop or online application. By detecting when contact data is entered, Robot automatically delivers accurate data into the right fields speeding up entry and delivering accuracy.


If the plugin you require has not been listed above, then please get in touch as we would love to explore developing this with you.
