Cambridge Intelligence has moved to its own larger premises in the centre of Cambridge after enjoying rapid global growth while at ideaSpace.
New home for rapidly growing Cambridge Intelligence
The move sees the firm, which is responsible for the KeyLines data visualisation toolkit, take up residence in the former Xerox Research Centre on Regent Street, overlooking Parker’s Piece.
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 from seven full-time employees to 20 by the end of next year.
It recently announced the signing of a major deal with a European national police force, bringing its client count past 20 – double what it was six months previously. It also made its first Latin American sale, meaning the KeyLines visualisation toolkit is in use by governments, police forces and enterprises across five continents.
Joe Parry, Cambridge Intelligence founder and CEO, said: “This is a really exciting moment in Cambridge Intelligence’s history.
“As a relatively young company, being part of the ideaSpace community has been fantastic – offering the support and flexibility we needed during our first few years.
“However, as the KeyLines team continues to grow it felt like a good time to make the move into our own space. 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.”
A recruitment drive is under way to support the company’s growing client base and to build new functionality for the KeyLines software.
The office move comes just a few weeks after Cambridge Intelligence was named as one of the Everline Future 50, a national scheme recognising the UK’s most disruptive young companies, and it shortlisted for the Business Weekly award for International Business of the Year.
ideaSpace believes that great organisations are founded by great people.
