About Us

FutureSoft was founded by the Rafferty Brothers and development expert Jan Agenbacht after they realised, in late 2005, that there was a pressing need in the South African debt collection arena for a software solution that would combine all the different technologies into a single user-experience.

FutureSoft Directors
Peter and Rob Rafferty, both practicing lawyers, possessed the debt collection skills as they had been active in the industry for the best part of the preceding two decades. Although their skills assisted Jan Agenbacht and his team to understand the inner workings of a high volume debt collection enterprise; it soon became evident that a person skilled in project management, data management and systems integration was needed to ensure the future of FutureSoft’s projects. Jaco Pierre Sonnekus, a life-long friend of the Rafferty Brothers and a man skilled in project- and data management as well as business analysis, solution definition, and configuration and deployment of solutions joined the team and completed FutureSoft’s Executive Team. Internally, each of these four Executive Members of the FutureSoft Team represent one of the four cornerstones of FutureSoft’s success, namely:
Passion, Logic and Execution through our Technology.

Management expert Rudolph van Schalkwyk joined FutureSoft as Director after spending a number of years in America. Shortly afterwards, Optimisation Specialist Sashin Thotha was also appointed as Director.
Together the Executive- and Management Teams manage over 70 staff members who ensure that FutureSoft clients are taken care of.
Excalibur is currently employed as the Debt Collection Management System of choice by numerous law firms and Debt Recovery Agencies across South Africa. In addition, a number of banks and many large South African corporates have installed Excalibur to deal with their own ‘early delinquency’ debtors and their outsource requirements.
Excalibur is integrated into all the Banks, many City Councils, telecoms companies, the SABC and numerous other credit providers.
