Panintelligence, the Leeds-based business intelligence and analytics scale-up, continues its significant growth into the final quarter of the 2018. With continuing 40% growth, the company has taken on five new people across development, sales and support, to deliver new product innovations quicker and support the rapidly increasing number of partners.
Panintelligence CEO, Zandra Moore, said: “Increasing the team by 50% this year makes it a very exciting time to be part of the Panintelligence journey. We remain committed to adding top talent across the company, as we continue to grow within the analytics market. We’ve now set our sights on expanding overseas to Boston, USA and we are exploring China.”

Product Director, Ken Miller, is currently in China for the World Economic Forum (WEF) as he looks to forge new business relationships. Panintelligence was invited to join the delegation led by Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester and is among 16 companies from the North of England to represent cutting edge innovations.
The Leeds company will meet with international researchers, thought leaders and companies at WEF. As part of the visit, the UK delegation has also been invited to network with Chinese representatives at the UK embassy in Beijing, as well as take the opportunity for one-to-one business match-making arranged by China Britain Business Council and the Department for International Trade (DIT).

Simultaneously Panintelligence is in the final stages of planning an exploratory scoping trip to Boston, USA in November.

Zandra explained: “The relationship between Leeds and Boston just gets stronger. With both cities being technology hubs, trade deals are becoming more frequent and ties are getting closer.”

CEO, Zandra, will meet communities of universities, councils, and technology vendors through face to face meetings and networking events to develop an insight into the market and explore potential partnerships with software companies in the Boston tech hub located in Massachusetts.

Zandra concluded: “Exceptional demand for our business information and analytics resources, a raft of new hires and exploring business opportunities in Boston and China means we’re looking forward to seeing what the future will bring for the rest of the year and beyond.”
