USA – Eighth Edition

CEO Connection

Dear Team,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy during these times. The past few months have required an intense amount of focus and determination from all of us. At the end of our 2019 fiscal year, we entered into a global pandemic that demanded we adapt our business model and work from home basically overnight. Despite these challenges, we have been able to keep most of our projects, close projects with new clients and have increased our profitability. So far in the first quarter of FY’20 – for April and May- we closed $4.3M in monthly revenue and were 15.4% over budget. We are on track to finish the first quarter strong. These are accomplishments that we should be proud of. I congratulate each of you and I know that our FY’20 will be successful if we keep up the good work.

As far as the new normal, we discussed this in-depth during the everis USA meeting with our executives. We are focusing on ‘business as usual’ until we know more about our clients reopening plans and our cities and states’ plans where we operate. Let’s continue to move forward and focus as we analyze the situation daily with the safety of our employees in the forefront.

All the best,

 everis and Santander Deploy CDD Project

everis USA, and the AML/Compliance team working for Santander US, recently made one of the most important deployments in Santander bank in 2020. The CDD project pursues the migration and adaptation of Santander customer screening and scoring, within the process of onboarding new products in the new compliance platform (NetReveal). The project began on March 14th, 2017 and was finally successfully deployed on April 20th, 2020. everis USA took over the project back in 2019, in the midst of several critical problems the Bank had in the area – lack of knowledge and skills in the platform, non-structured and a very disorganized team, lack of alignment with the business areas, a very unstable platform, proper SLC processes and governance, etc. This was a great opportunity for everis USA to come in, at the beginning of 2019, and create a completely new model and way of working in the area. The approach was basically to build a true partnership, to be an accelerator for the IT Compliance Area (structured and knowledgeable team aligned with IT Management and Business teams). This new model was key to the success of the CDD project. The complexity of the achievement is remarkable considering it has been carried out during the COVID pandemic, with the team working from home, even in this situation, it was an example of complete success and received great recognition from our customer.

CEO Connection

Dear Team,

I would like to wish you a happy holidays. The new year is approaching, which is a good time to reflect on what we have accomplished and what we have left to acheive for our fiscal year. When we look back, we have much to be grateful for and we can be optimistic about the new year.

We are heading towards the end of the 2020 fiscal year, which will end in March, with very strong results. Revenue by the end of November – which includes the impact of the cyber-security attack- was close to $35 M USD which means we are 23% above budget and 42% above Year over Year. Not only are the bigger accounts (led by Santander and Avangrid) performing well but we are also making noteworthy progress in some of our newer accounts such as Kantar (https://www.kantar.com/) and Forever Mark (https://www.forevermark.com/en-us/our-diamonds/).

In terms of profitability, we are also above budget (65% above EBIT PB by the end of November) and contributing remarkably to the overall results of the everis group being the operation with the best relative profit indicators and third in overall net profit. During the last quarter of the year (January – March) we need to push so we maintain these outstanding results in order to keep the momentum for FY20. At this point I would like to acknowledge your efforts and your contributions to these results. Thank you!

Finally, we are currently working on the budget for FY20. It is going to be hard to keep up this strong pace but we plan to do it by continuing to increase our account portfolio and diversifying our operations in our main accounts. We are confident that, with this team, we will do it!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday and I look forward to building a new decade of success with you in 2020!

All the best,

The event brought together more than a dozen team members from different areas, with diverse skills and technical backgrounds. Besides sharing tech knowledge, the experience added some management 3.0 tools to the sessions and some friendly pizza time, giving the team time together to have fun. Elvis Novoa won the Hackathon challenge and earned an Amazon Gift Card as the person voted as most valuable Cells companion. The Hackaton was a success and we managed to get a working prototype of one functionality of Net Cash using Cells.
