Cambridge Intelligence grows headcount from new city HQ
Cambridge Intelligence, the young company responsible for the KeyLines data visualisation toolkit technology, has relocated to its own larger premises. The business is leaving Cambridge University’s ideaSpace accelerator to take up residence in the former Xerox Research Centre – a spacious city centre facility overlooking Parker’s Piece.
The office move comes just weeks after Cambridge Intelligence was named one of the Everline Future 50, a national scheme recognising the UK’s most disruptive young companies, and shortlisted for the Business Weekly International Trade Champion Award.
Since its foundation in 2011, Cambridge Intelligence has enjoyed rapid organic growth driven by increasing global interest in KeyLines and data visualisation. This success is expected to continue with plans to expand the employee count from seven full-time employees now to 20 by the end of 2015.
A recruitment drive is underway to support the company’s growing client base and to build new functionality for the KeyLines software.
It recently announced the signing of a major new deal with a European national police force, bringing its client count to double what it was just six months before. CI also recently made its first Latin American sale, meaning the KeyLines visualisation toolkit is now in use by governments, police forces and enterprises across five continents.
Cambridge Intelligence founder and CEO, Joe Parry, said: “This is a really exciting period in Cambridge Intelligence’s history. Excellence in both software engineering and visual design have always driven everything we do, so finding the right location for that culture to thrive was essential.
“Our new office is modern, stylish, and a great creative space for us to grow into. It will be an inspiring place for our customers to visit and will help us attract the best talent going forward.”
