Our company

PayGroup, a Chilean-based group that emerged from the integration of EFT Group and uruguayan PayTrue, is the leading company in the development of transactional, payment, collection, card core (credit / debit / prepaid) solutions, Fraud and AML (Anti money laundering) with presence in more than 15 countries in Latin America.

With 20 years of experience, the company was born with a group of entrepreneurial engineers who detected a need in the financial industry and developed a successful business idea, from which they were able to build a company that today competes in the most complex markets of the Region and is a leader in Latin America.

The company's beginnings date back to 1995, when industrial civil engineer Raúl Del Castillo founded his own company, EFT Group, to solve a "problem" of technology faced by important chilean banks. Since then PayGroup has had a leading role in the development of transactional financial services in Chile, with various innovations and electronic solutions that have changed different industries, improving the experience of end users and allowing the implementation of new business models that are currently being replicated at the regional level (eg Tax Payment, Service Accounts, Social Laws and others, all in online mode).

In October 2003, PayGroup integrated Getronics Chile, a subsidiary of the Dutch multinational specialist in IT systems and solutions.

In the same year 2003, PayTrue solutions was born in Uruguay, an export company of payment media software that develops solutions for fraud prevention and card management systems. PayTrue quickly acquired the status of an international company by consolidating important projects in the United States, Mexico, Brazil and other countries in the region.

In 2011, Mater Investment Fund acquired 51% of PayGroup, and in 2013 the new shareholders of the company, in search of new business opportunities and to promote the company's internationalization process in the region, purchase the Uruguayan company PayTrue. The integration of both companies has allowed PayGroup to position itself as a regional company, offering a wide range of complementary services, making great difference between its competitors with an integrated product offering.

Just in Chile the company processes more than 20 million monthly transactions through its payment and collection systems in outsourcing mode, and another 350 million monthly transactions in systems installed in the different clients of the region.

In 2017 PayGroup is acquired by Evertec, Inc. (NYSE: EVTC) a leading full-service transaction processing business in Latin America, providing a broad range of merchant acquiring, payment processing and business solutions services. The Company manages a system of electronic payment networks that process more than 2.1 billion transactions annually, and offers a comprehensive suite of services for core bank processing, cash processing and technology outsourcing. In addition, EVERTEC owns and operates the ATH® network, one of the leading personal identification number (“PIN”) debit networks in Latin America. Based in Puerto Rico, the Company operates in 19 Latin American countries and serves a diversified customer base of leading financial institutions, merchants, corporations and government agencies with “mission-critical” technology solutions.
