Our History

EVO was founded in 1989 as an individually owned, independent sales organization. The emphasis on sales at EVO’s inception remains evident through EVO’s continued focus on maintaining industry leading products and services. An effective sales strategy, in EVO’s view, is grounded on establishing a reputation for best-in-class products and services, evidenced by EVO’s ongoing commitment to innovation.

Over the years, EVO’s growth has accelerated as it established or invested in new sales partnerships, distribution channels, and product offerings. As EVO expanded its distribution capabilities and grew its portfolio of merchant relationships, EVO invested considerably in providing support services to our sales partners and leveraging our capabilities to drive continued growth. EVO sought to automate key functions of the acquiring process, including onboarding of new merchants and various risk monitoring functions.
