BOSTON, MA and CHIASSO, SWITZERLAND - Tuesday, November 8th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BOARD International, the world’s leading supplier of Decision Making software for enterprises, today announced co-located headquarters in Boston, MA and Chiasso, Switzerland to underscore its strategic focus on the US market for Business Intelligence, Analytics and Performance Management software.
“The year 2016 has seen tremendous growth for BOARD both in Europe and the US, and our strategic plans call for elevating our US revenues to at least 50% of corporate revenues by 2019,” said BOARD CEO, Giovanni Grossi, at an inauguration ceremony in the Boston offices. “A Boston headquarters underscores our strategic commitment to that US growth with adequate space, staffing and funding to accommodate our rapid growth and expanded enterprise customer base.”
In the past year, BOARD has signed and deployed its combined BI and Corporate Performance Management software platform at such leading North American companies as Volkswagen, Eversource, Advanced Micro Devices, Cheesecake Factory, Harry & David, BioMarin Pharmaceuticals and Zales Jewelers. BOARD International also has US offices in Austin, Texas, as well as in 14 other countries worldwide.
“BOARD’s adoption by so many multi-billion dollar enterprises in the US has been another reason to co-locate our headquarters here in Boston. We’re committed to fully supporting our broad range of existing customers with capacity for continued rapid growth over the next decade and beyond, particularly in the US,” said Scott Jennings, General Manager of BOARD Americas.
The company’s rapid growth, which is on a run-rate to exceed 100 percent at the end of this year, has been fueled largely by an increasing recognition of the value corporations gain from a unified enterprise-wide software platform, either in the Cloud or on premise, for planning, forecasting and business intelligence analytics in support of corporate decision making at all levels.
