SDT Financial Software Solutions was established in 1995 to provide business application solutions for the financial services industry with particular emphasis on life insurance, loans, health, pensions and employee benefits. Based in Pretoria, South Africa, the company became a strategic supplier to more than 30 clients in 12 African countries.

SDT is respected in the industry for in-depth understanding of the industry requirements and the business design that has been embedded in the Exergy solution, allowing clients to explore new levels of flexibility and agility on a robust platform.

The cost effective events-driven, rules-based, n-tier architecture of the life insurance policy administration system, Exergy, is based on Microsoft dotNet technology. Exergy enables clients to effectively create, deliver, administer and manage a full range of financial solutions on a single platform - including  Life Assurance, Group Investment Schemes, Employee Benefits, Credit Life Assurance, Micro-insurance, Medical and Loans administration. SDT is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and all systems are based on Microsoft's development and operating environments.

In 2006 SDT was reverse listed onto the JSE AltX under SilverBridge Holdings that has since acquired Ones and Zeros (Pty) Ltd, a specialised systems implementation consulting company and Acczone, a specialized interest-bearing receivables management solution provider. SilverBridge Holdings is a leading black economic empowered supplier of niche business application solutions and related services to the financial services sector.

SilverBridge Holdings consolidated all operating subsidiaries into one operating entity in April 2011 and renamed this entity SilverBridge Software Solutions.

SilverBridge applies the principles of business architecture across all its software domains and projects. We believe this approach delivers rapid and enduring competitive advantage to our clients; not just through software applications, but also in the design of business processes. By using one integrated solution framework we enable lower administration cost and are able to provide clients with the quickest and most cost-effective launch of products available.
