Evalto, Inc. is wildly passionate about leveraging automation to gain efficiencies.
The people working on Governance, Risk, and Compliance/Integrated Risk Management activities have full-time jobs in their domain (Compliance, Risk, Third Party Management, Business Continuity, Cybersecurity, etc.). They desire to accomplish their objectives in the most efficient manner possible. Evalto helps to increase efficiency and minimize manual tasks.
While attending college at Bradley University in 1998, Doug was approached by a professor teaching an MBA course with a proposal from one of his students to re-write a software application for Caterpillar's Marine Division from DOS to Windows. Doug jumped at the opportunity and DCS Consulting was born. That opportunity grew into many more software projects for Caterpillar.
Three years later, Evalto, Inc. was incorporated. Then came more services such as web site development and hosting, email newsletter hosting, and web site monitoring across the country. While volunteering at YouthBuild McLean County, a consistent frustration by leadership about the lack of a software platform for their organization turned into an opportunity to develop an educational tracking system for non-profits called eduIntel.
While working at State Farm, Doug's career evolved and gained exposure to various domains of development, infrastructure, auditing, security, risk, and compliance. That experience was tapped to lead the enterprise rollout and development of the RSA Archer platform in 2010. In 1017, a recruiter from Palmer Group informed Doug of an RSA Archer consulting opportunity locally at Berkley Technology Services (BTS), a W.R. Berkley Corporation. Now we bring all that experience to help other organizations manage their RSA Archer environments efficiently.
What's an Evalto?
We often get asked "What does Evalto mean?" and "Where did it come from?" Great questions!
It was a brainstorming activity with my wife Erin. In the early 2000's tech companies typically started with an 'e' for e-commerce (ebay, esurance, eharmony, etc.) and we wanted to leverage that trend. We liked "Evato", but the .com name was taken....adding an 'L' made Evalto. It had the sound of a tech company and "vault" which had a feeling of security/strength. Also, "eval" is a programming function (Wikipedia) which resonated well with what we were doing.
