A visual management platform for businesses aims for UK growth after opening a base in London.
Based in France, iObeya’s solution supports industrial product lifecycle management, manufacturing operations, product development, and continuous improvement of business performance and agility.
It serves large organizations with complex manufacturing, engineering, research and development or extended management workflows.
After opening five new regional offices in London, Singapore, New York, Hamburg and Rotterdam, by joining the company’s Paris headquarters and existing offices in Seattle and Tunis, it aims to grow its global headcount by 65% to support nearly one million users around the world.
In 2021 alone, iObeya added nearly 80 corporate clients from both the Fortune 500 and CAC 40 as demand for visual management software skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The result saw iObeya’s global revenue grow 70% year-over-year.
“The London office aims to grow its workforce over the next few years,” founder and CEO Cyril Daloz told BusinessCloud. “The London team will be comprised of a broad range of areas of expertise.”
Initial hires will include an account manager and a customer success manager as you “progress”. Christopher Tudway has already been tasked with expanding iObeya’s reach in the UK and Ireland with an emphasis on pharmaceuticals and financials.
Daloz added: “The UK is an important center for so many industries that find success using iObeya. The UK is one of the largest markets in the EMEA, along with France and Germany, where iObeya is already present.
“Since Brexit, we believe it is even more important to have a local presence, particularly for our existing customer base which includes the operations and sites of Abbott Laboratories, Thales and Airbus.
“This year we have a strong focus on developing partnerships with local lean and agile management consulting organizations, for which there are many in this particular region.
“Our new office locations will now allow us to work closely with our customers around the world, with each new office serving as a hub for customer excellence led by an industry leader with practical experience.”
