Our Philosophy

We partner with lenders who share our belief superior profitability and outstanding customer experience should be key. We embrace the notion that faster turnaround, better customer experience and more profitability means getting the most out of existing systems.

Digital Lending Transformation doesn’t mean buying all new systems… it’s an end-to-end approach that often redeploys and enhances what systems are in use… to deliver meaningful increases in profitability and customer satisfaction.

All Teraverde® team members have prior industry experience as an executive or senior manager with multiple companies in the mortgage banking, banking, financial management or capital markets. As seasoned industry executives, we have seen and worked through major challenges in the mortgage lending and banking industries before. We know what works and what doesn’t. Our experience allows us to accurately identify the appropriate business solutions the first time.

Our solutions enhance existing systems to provide superior workflow management, robotics process automation, visual classification and data extraction from documents, with all activities in the organization measured with an enterprise profit intelligence solution.

The Origin of our Logo

Teraverde flows from the Latin “terra” meaning earth or fields, and “verdant” mean green and lush. We excel at taking a fresh, “green earth” approach to breed operational excellence within our clients.

Origin of “Consider It. Done.”

Our motto “Consider it. Done.” flowed from conversations with multiple clients. After finishing a particularly challenging rush assignment and meeting the deadline, the CFO of the client was very pleased. He told us that because of our performance in meeting the client’s needs, our motto should be “we get s— done”. That was not the first time that we have gotten that kind of compliment, albeit it was a little more colorful this time. The CFO’s comment sparked a brainstorming session among the Teraverde team on how to turn that phrase into our own words. After considering all the positive feedback from so many of our 150 clients, we settled on “Consider it. Done.” We believe “Consider It. Done” is truly at the heart of Teraverde. Our company drive to be creative and find solutions drove us to craft a song, “Consider it. Done.” The music video followed. And here we are!
