Early Warning Services of Scottsdale expands on success of Zelle

If the name Early Warning Services doesn’t ring a bill, don’t be surprised.

Even though the company has kept its headquarters in Arizona for three decades, and even though you already might use its popular electronic-payment system, Zelle, the business has kept a low profile.

Until now.

With the robust growth of Zelle – now available to 150 million consumers and thousands of businesses nationally – Early Warning is seeking more visibility.

“We have been based in Scottsdale for decades,” said Melissa Lowry, chief marketing officer at Early Warning. “We stayed under the radar until the launch of Zelle.”

New location for established company

Early Warning this month marked the grand opening of its new 125,000-square foot headquarters at 5801 N. Pima Rd. The company now employs 1,100 people, 70% of whom live in Arizona, and still has 180 unfilled positions.

Early Warning also has offices in San Francisco and Chicago.

Melissa Lowry helped launch electronic payment service Zelle for Scottsdale-based Early Warning Services.

Prior to Zelle, Early Warning developed other services including a quick identification-verification system.

“When you open a bank account, we can verify your ID in minutes,” Lowry said.

Other services include those geared to locating accounts and assessing customer risks.

Early Warning is a private company owned by seven large financial institutions – Bank of America, Capital One, Chase, PNC, Truist, US Bank and Wells Fargo. As such, it doesn’t disclose financial details such as revenue.
