everis UK has had a successful period of expansion over the last 3 years, seeing staff numbers quadruple and revenues triple from their UK based offices.
At the core of its success it has a total commitment to innovation and collaboration. everisNext is a global platform of around 2M start-ups which is important part of the DNA of the company and free to access.
In 2014 the company for the second time became part of a Japanese company in its 20 year history. The key to it's success has been a strong focus on offering solutions that are not generic in the market place, as many big names tend to end up with this type of work. Instead they have focused on areas where they bring a lot of experience and a track record, which often is lacking in the market place with the key to offering a strong added value propositions.
The company's focus with this strategy ensured areas such as Big Data, often an area where large organisation fail, has been achieving a 100% success on delivery (live projects not just POC's). This is different to what is expected in the market place where typically only 40% of companies show success in this area.
The key to the success of everis is that they work to their companies values of collaboration, trust and openness. Unlike a lot of their competitors they do not have large sales teams trying to flog what they do, but Account and Specialist Managers / Directors who are experts in their own field. These are the people that will also deliver what they offer, ensuring accountability and that any scoping is adhered to religiously. They work either on their own (as UK based team) or often in collaboration of our near shore-centres of excellence to offer a hybrid 'on and near-shore service' in many different specialist areas.
Murex (front office trading system) is an example where the company have done well to deliver solutions that are competitive in the market place, offer a high and consistent service, where all staff are employed directly by everis. They are working on a major FRTB project using Murex technology to deliver a strategic solution for this major bank. Using the support of the Centre of Excellence in Spain, this ensuring a low attrition ratio of staff and a better consistency on services. This working to better standards with a high level of accountability, which is not always the case when contractors are often employed by end user companies directly and often at higher rates.
