The Switch of choice

apace is a secure, online, realtime electronic transaction switch customisable for any need

Industry and Type Agnostic

Medical Transaction Switching

The common medical transaction types for claims, member validation and benefit checks and authorisations, are all supported by the switch and will help get medical providers connected to backend funders with ease

Fast and Lightweight

The apace switch is designed to be as fast, secure and lightweight as possible, specifically to minimise overhead no matter what the transaction type being handled

Open Standards

apace is all about open standards, so wherever possible open standards and formats are used thereby ensuring no vendor lock-in and also promoting a more collaborative environment

Easy to integrate with

The apace switch is easy to integrate with and can work with almost any format and connectivity mechanism. It will also implicitly convert whatever your incoming format is to whatever the destination system expects

What is apace?


Apace Systems (Pty) Ltd is a majority management-owned and completely independent transaction enabler and switch with a cumulative total of 72 years of industry experience. Our primary focus started with medical transaction switching. However, this knowledge and its applicability has been expanded enabling us to switch transactions for any industry and need.

Our Goal

Apace Systems set out to create an independent switch that is fast, secure, open and easy to use, and that could be used throughout anywhere in the world with no country-specific restrictions while abiding by each country's local regulations and requirements. Best practices were adhered to from the start, which makes the system flexible to each client's needs and the requirements of their country or regulatory body.

What we offer

The apace switch is a type-agnostic switch that can handle data across any industry and format. It provides multiple connectivity options and abides by the highest forms of security. Built as a completely pluggable interface it can enable specific features as and when required. Transactions can be processed in realtime, as batch or as a hybrid where transactions are received as batch, but passed to the backend as realtime.
