XLink was established in 2004 to become a leading provider in providing agility, resilience and best practice in connectivity for the retail and payment sectors. When XLink first opened its doors, the connected world was just starting. By leveraging the skills we honed in the payment and retail sectors, we have become the perfect partner to help consult, develop and orchestrate products and solutions in the connectivity space.

In 2004, the main means to connect solutions was through GSM, but today there is a massive variety of technologies that drive the data that businesses use to transact, learn and grow. Thus we are connection-agnostic: an XLink solution does not shoehorn what is convenient, but establishes what our customers need. We operate on the principles of being reliable, saleable, reputable and robust. By taking the experience gathered over our 17-year lifespan, we are introducing new levels of excellence to other applications. As a leader in managed services, security, performance monitoring and more, we can take any digital problem and bring together an ecosystem of vetted partners, suppliers and providers to solve business problems.

This is the new context: connectivity and data are pervasive and the ingredients for successful 21st century companies. We use our ample experience and hard-earned pedigree to make that context a tangible reality that our customers can truly own, ultimately enabling Africa to transact.

Connectivity is in our DNA and we are experts in developing Industry 4.0 solutions using the best products and best practices. We understand that our customers want results that make sense to their companies, so they can continue to focus on business.

The potential of this new era is incredible. It can transform businesses and create untold new opportunities for people, including financial emancipation. This is XLink’s legacy: to use the best of connectivity and technology, and make progress a reality for our customers, communities and countries.
