IRVING, Texas, May 6, 2021 – Exela Technologies, Inc. (“Exela”) (NASDAQ: XELA) was named a “Major Contender” in Everest Group’s Financial Crime and Compliance (FCC) Operations - Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2021. Everest Group reports that Exela has notable strengths in the areas of KYC and transaction monitoring, payments, document digitization, electronic signatures, and rules-based automation.


This designation results from the leadership of Exela’s President, Suresh Yannamani, the development and continued growth of Exela’s Finance & Accounting solutions, and its “Digital Now” strategy, which emphasizes digital transformation as the basis of business process optimization.


A central element of Exela’s strategy in this area is its Exchange for Bills and Payments (XBP), which is integral to Exela’s vision of “building digital roads to repair broken processes.” XBP connects with a growing list of P2P and O2C solutions that include components of FCC and collectively represent a significant value-add to institutions intending to enhance FCC processes or integrate an FCC workflow into current in-house or emerging solutions.


“The pandemic has pushed the adoption of digital banking further with a spike in number of customers using digital modes of transactions and other banking processes. This also has exposed the vulnerabilities in financial institutions’ internal processes when agent availability was challenged,” said Robin Jain, Practice Director, Everest Group. “Exela Technologies has taken a technology-led approach to its FCC services with multiple digital solutions in payments, due diligence, and KYC that help reduce the reliance on manual intervention while maintaining compliance.”
