A few words about us


We started developing Teslar with a single solution in mind, simplify the exception tracking methods for financial institutions. Once we began partnering with customers and talking about their daily processes, we discovered the need for streamlined workflows didn’t stop at exception tracking. From front line retail banking to back office loan operations, too many institutions are dealing with disjointed systems, inefficient processes and outdated technology. Here at Teslar Software, we’ve made it our mission to empower financial institutions to better serve their customers through superior software and smarter processes.

HISTORY

We began as 3E Software in 2008 exporting loan data for the FDIC. Teslar was born soon after and has experienced exponential growth year after year ever since.

VISION

To create highly efficient banks through Teslar by empowering bankers, streamlining processes, integrating multiple systems, and making it scalable. These are the four pillars of everything we do at Teslar Software.

MISSION

Empower financial institutions to better serve their customers through superior software and intelligent processes.
