Record growth in digital tech economy for Leeds’ Panintelligence

Yorkshire region crowned nation’s second biggest start-up hub

Panintelligence, the Leeds-based business intelligence and analytics software developer, has experienced record growth in the first half of this year, putting it on track to achieve 40% growth in 2018.

The company enables businesses to slice and dice data to drive strategic decision making, helping them lower costs and understand key issues through its data visualisation and analytics platforms.

Its vendor partners include Sage, Communisis, Tribal and Advanced, while its end users cover sectors from manufacturing and education to healthcare and local government.

Since its inception after parent company PanCredit underwent a management buyout in 2014, Panintelligence has seen its turnover grow 30% year on year, with its partner numbers growing six-fold from 15 to 90, and staff numbers increasing from four to 30.

“We have an ambitious growth target, supported by a strategic plan of how to achieve that,” said CEO Zandra Moore.

“Over the last couple of months, we’ve formed new relationships with several businesses to improve the reporting and analytics capabilities they offer their customers. K3 FDS came onboard as a software reseller in June, while we’ve also recently signed up Agile Software and Alcium Software, both developers of solutions for local authorities.

“Following on from those wins, we’ve welcomed new partners in local government and the insurance industry.

“As a result, we have three new starters and are advertising for five more across developer, customer service and sales functions.

“It’s been a very busy start to 2018 with exceptional demand for our business information and analytics resources, and a raft of new hires, we’re looking forward to seeing what the future will bring for the rest of the year and beyond.”

May 2018 proved the most successful month to date for the scale-up business in terms of revenue, with the team welcoming 15 new partners – including OCF Data, Acorn IT Solutions, Morning Data and White Label Loyalty – and three new staff.

Alex Paramore joins the BI Consultant team having spent the last five and a half years at a global legal advice firm in Leeds, where he provided analysis, management information, and database development to all areas of the business.

Fresh out of university, Nathan McKenzie has been appointed as Software Test Engineer after studying Computer Forensics and Security Provision. Jeanette Spence also joins the team in early July as Sales Administrator.
