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to back office loan operations, too many institutions are dealing with disjointed systems, inefficient processes and outdated technology.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 3E, we’ve made it our mission to empower financial institutions to better serve their customers through superior software and smarter processes.


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


Create highly efficient banks, through Teslar, by: empowering bankers, streamlining processes, integrating multiple systems and making it scalable. These four pillars underpin everything we do at 3E.


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

21 Modules developed by 3E,
designed by our customers.

At 3E, we consider ourselves less of a vendor and more a strategic partner.
By listening to our customers and discovering their needs, Teslar has grown from a single solution to a comprehensive suite of modules that cover the spectrum of modern banking.
