The commitment to the right strategy, the quality of BI4ALL's services and solutions, together with the strong growth recorded both nationally and internationally, enabled the company to grow 28% and achieve a turnover of 9 million euros.
BI4ALL, a national reference company in the implementation of Business Intelligence solutions, recorded a strong growth in its turnover. These results, strongly positive, result from the company's strategic commitment to the adequacy and relevance of its offer, as well as the partnerships established throughout the year and the commitment on human capital as a fundamental pillar of the company's development. Another factor responsible for these results is the growth in the international markets in which BI4ALL operates, which already represent 47% of turnover, having grown 58% compared to 2016.
"The growth BI4ALL has seen over the years is proof that Business Intelligence solutions are increasingly playing a key role in management and are clearly an important area for winning organizations in a global economy. This conviction guided the goals and strategies we defined for 2017", says José Oliveira, BI4ALL CEO.
This year was characterized by the realization of a series of projects of great relevance with renowned companies, as well as the establishment of new strategic partners and the reinforcement of the current ones, in order to allow BI4ALL to hold a wider and complete offer, in terms of new sectors and new geographies. But, above all, that allows to follow and respond to the increasing demands of Customers.
On the other hand, the company also bets on the expansion of its international presence, which already has a significant weight in its billing, being present in the most important world events dedicated to the Business Intelligence area. This presence is part of an internationalization strategy that BI4ALL has been consolidating over the last few years, and in 2017, the highlight was the opening of a new Nearshore Center for the company and the presence of worldwide reference events dedicated to the area such as the Gartner Data and Analytics Summit and Big Data Analytics.
A fundamental dimension to the good results achieved is the commitment to the quality and qualification of the BI4ALL team, which had a strong growth in line with the implementation of the management model focused on teams of Managers, which has created a solid foundation for strategic objectives. As a result of this success, BI4ALL had an increase in its team of 14%, of the number of employees, and closed the year 2017 with a total of 145 employees. It is the goal, by 2018, to hire more than 30 people.
"The year 2017 came to confirm BI4ALL as a reference company in the development of Business Intelligence services and we are proud to be recognized again with distinction in the Index of Excellence and Best Companies to Work. All these achievements, accomplished over the last year, are proof of our quality and our ability to execute, both nationally and internationally. By 2018, our objectives are to continue to grow and evolve with our Clients, in projects and in teams, in order to exceed a turnover of 10 million euros. We want to be and continue to be recognized as the trusted partner for our national and international Clients", says José Oliveira, BI4ALL CEO.
