It's not just what we do. It's how we do it.
Many of the specialty loans that AFR offers require complex processes which are not supported by off-the-shelf industry software. As a result, AFR determined that the best way to deliver a seamless technology solution was to build the apps in-house. Now in its seventh year, AFR's application development team has a full suite of enterprise-class software tools designed specifically to meet the needs of our customers.
