Panintelligence is celebrating a record year of 25 per cent turnover growth that has seen the Leeds-based business boost its staff numbers and clients after passing the 200,000 user milestone for the first time in its five-year history.

Panintelligence enables businesses to use their own data to drive strategic decision-making, helping them lower costs and visualise key issues through its platforms.

The Panintelligence Pi software, a super-secure cloud-based BI and analytics platform, is white labelled across a wide range of industry sectors, from retail and education to local government and healthcare, to provide real-time BI dashboards and predictive analytics.

The business grew turnover to £1.8 million while user numbers climbed to 200,000 and 25 new licensed partners were added to the customer base, driving the recruitment of nine new members of staff.

CEO Zandra Moore said: “The software business is all about creating a valuable unique platform that many businesses need and want, and over years of development and improvement that’s what our dashboard and analytics products have become.

“We’re enabling small and medium-scale businesses to release insights and value from their data in real time with zero impact on security, and without the upfront costs of an enterprise-level data project.”

Founded in 2014, Panintelligence has a background in the credit and financial services sector and its products lead in data security and compliance. The Pi platform sits within clients’ own data environments where it securely provides data visualisations. As it does not move or copy data, it is inherently more secure than other methods of BI analysis, a factor that has significantly driven growth.

“Data security is the number one issue for CTOs right now, and we have a really strong story in that area by virtue of the way our software operates without moving or duplicating data,” said Moore.

“That’s a factor in our rapid growth. Our tie-up with Sage software, launched in November, has given us a new route to sales via every Sage 50 customer in the UK, but we’ve also deployed with retail clients globally in the last quarter, and we are seeing increasingly international white label projects through our network of 100 UK resellers and vendors too.”
