Troy-based tech firm iDashboards is enjoying rapid growth as the firm’s global expansion gains traction.
IDashboards creates business intelligence dashboard software with real-time results. The interactive computer dashboards for businesses analyze, track, and organize data into easily useable parts that help streamline a company and enable it to grow faster.
The 12-year-old firm spent its first decade establishing its product in North America. In recent years, it has expanded internationally, adding customers in dozens of countries and a recently opening an office in Germany. iDashboards is planning to open another office in the United Kingdom later this year.
“It’s a big world out there,” says Shadan Malik, president & CEO of iDashboards. “We have software that is pretty unique. We have customers in 40 countries. That speaks for itself.”
IDashboards’ revenue grew 18 percent last year, and the company is aiming to spike it by as much as 50 percent this year. That’s possible because of its diversified customer base and its efforts to grow globally have gone quite well so far this year.
iDashboards has hired 30 people over the last year, expanding its staff to 90 employees and three interns. It is also looking to hire four more people.
“We just hired five people yesterday,” Malik says.
