The journey from consulting to software design

Share Article

How difficult is to persevere and create one of the most successful nascent companies inside the financial and process automation industries? BeeckerCo’s journey, although far from its end, has important lessons to teach to new startups.

Today, BeeckerCo is a regional company based in Miami, Florida with operations in Colombia, México and Argentina. Even before the introduction of BeBOP (Beecker Banking Origination Process), it became a world-quality firm which specialized on the development of BPM (Business Process Management) and RPA (Robotic Process Automation) systems to improve productivity inside the financial sector. However, this was not always the case and, as with other great success stories, it has humble beginnings.

In 2013, Fernando Leibowich Beker decided to found BeeckerCo (former Beecker Consulting) with the idea of creating a company that provided a quality service to clients inside the financial market. Through process transformation and optimization, the focus of this corporation would be to incentivize better practices inside the industry, promote social and business responsibility and, in the long run, manage to see everyone gain access to a home and a better quality of life via an improvement in the performance of the whole sector.

“Back then, BeeckerCo was only 4 people working for 1 client providing consulting services focused on the automation of our client internal tasks”, says CEO Leibowich Beker. “However, we quickly grew both on staff and operations, and so our level of expertise in the field of BPM and RPA increased as well. We managed to get the attention of IBM, one of the top global players regarding products of process improvement and task automation, and became business partners. Even though our performance was getting better, more efficient, we began to notice core banking problems and challenges that required a different approach”.

The multi-skilled team of over 100 engineers, consultants and project managers of BeeckerCo became experts in handling and improving processes, but in their position as a consulting firm, they needed to work with tools developed by other corporations and chosen by the client company, even if those weren’t the best fit for the task at hand. Always with the objective of providing a better service, the firm evolved and began creating their very own software solutions to achieve greater integration and innovation.

“We identified two recurring challenges for several companies in the financial industry: Credit and Account Origination. We noticed that a great percentage of customer rejection inside the market occurred due to slow processes which became so cumbersome that people just gave up on asking for a loan. Through extensive collaborative work we created simple and lean processes, effective user interfaces and easy-to-implement connectors which, combined, became our little robot. That’s how we created BeBOP”, shares Leibowich Beker.

BeBOP represents the most advanced stage of BeeckerCo’s evolution, as it manages to provide clients with an easy-to-implement software solution, powered by years of hard work and experience, supported by IBM’s expertise in automation and constantly fine-tuned by the company team of consultants. Besides being the cornerstone of the regional firm, this little robot has become the first of its kind to have a 30-day free trial and an open-source code.
