Solution-oriented since the beginning

The history and evolution of Pythagoras

2005

Pythagoras is launched. Prior to that, professionals with decades of experience in banking worked together with IT experts to develop Pythagoras solutions for compliance and client management. From the outset, the goal was to create a modular all-in-one system that guarantees the highest security and confidentiality of client data and makes it easier to meet all compliance requirements. World-Check provides the necessary reference data for effective risk management.

2006

The Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce (SOGC) is added as a second reference database. With the new eSOGC screening solution, electronically published contents can be matched with customer data and business relationships.

2007

The Milan-based company Berma becomes a Pythagoras distribution partner. It had already specialized in IT applications and systems for the banking, insurance and financial sectors.

2009

Pythagoras continues to become more international. A service and research center is established in Cape Town, South Africa.

2013

Pythagoras expands its solution portfolio to include native character screening, which now recognizes Asian characters in addition to other non-Latin characters. Demand in East Asia grows. An additional service center is established in Hong Kong to best meet this growth.

2015

Dow Jones Factiva provides institutions around the world with high-quality, well-structured data for money laundering and know-your-customer compliance.

2019

Pythagoras reinforces its sales and service network by establishing its Slovenia office. Its focus is on software development, testing and third-level support.

2020

In addition to the headquarters in Zug, a second Swiss Pythagoras location opens in Geneva to better serve French-speaking customers.
