26th Year Anniversary
Akyman provides wireless payment devices to merchants and operates the mobile payment processing system that enables them to authorise payments wirelessly, in additon to merchant maintenance and terminal support services.
The Akyman group was founded in 1981 as a specialist software house working exclusively with Australia's three leading banks. It was only a year later that Akyman first started earning our motto 'Always First' by designing Australia's first branch banking network under the Hogan umbrella. From there we've never looked back.
Other firsts that Akyman has had the priveledge to achieve over the past two decades were the first Australian made Eft-Pos terminal (for Caltex/Texaco and InterFlora), Australia's first commercially integrated smart card loyalty system (Melbourne Central and Daimaru) and the world's first fully wireless mobile credit card and smart card payment terminals (GSM in 1994 and GPRS in 2000).
Akyman's headquarters are located in the heart of the Melbourne technology scene on St Kilda Rd overlooking Albert Park and just 2 minutes from the CBD.
Akyman retains a compact yet highly efficient team of engineers, sales coordinators, post sale support experts and administrative assiatants to continue leading the market with our innovations and to support our extensive merchant community and other valued clients.
Akyman is proudly 100% Australian owned and operated.
