BIME’s Smart Move to Kansas City

BIME Analytics, the leading company in true cloud business intelligence (BI), has worked from its headquarters in Montpellier, France, since 2009. It’s the only true cloud BI that transforms the Web into a connected data warehouse. BIME is a pay-as-you-go service that is compatible with all browsers and mobile devices. Users can query data sources in real time across the entire Web and present their data through various visuals.

BIME currently has clients in 23 countries, with one out of three based in the United States. To better serve its global clients, the company decided to create a dual headquarters in the U.S. and found a home in Kansas City’s rapidly increasing startup community. BIME was attracted to the city’s strong talent pool and impressed by Google Fiber and KC Launch, Mayor Sly James’ initiative to attract high-tech companies.

To achieve a smooth transition into its new American home, BIME appointed Jim Lysinger vice president of North America. Lysinger will oversee the KC headquarters, which is located in the Crossroads at 1812 Broadway Blvd. The office will start off as a team of seven employees focused on sales and support. Throughout 2014, BIME will focus on increasing its staff in both Kansas City and Montpellier. By the end of the year, the company hopes to double in size.
