Healthcare Cloud Analytics Company SHYFT Doubles Customers and Employees in 2015

Novel Specialty Analytics and Real World Evidence Solutions Drive 100% Growth to Finish a Breakout Year

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 21, 2015) - In less than 20 months after raising its first round of growth capital, SHYFT Analytics, a leader in cloud data management and guided analytics for global life sciences, has grown to over 100 employees and more than doubled the number of Life Sciences customers as it closes out a breakout year. Marked by a 100 percent increase in software subscriptions, new customers include both large pharma companies as well as emerging biotech firms. The SaaS-based company's exceptional growth has also led to an increase in office space from 12,000 to 25,000 square feet in Waltham, Massachusetts, with plans to expand operations to New York City and the West Coast in the 2016.

The move to the cloud and to value-based healthcare is driving adoption of SHYFT's cloud-based data management and analytics platform. Healthcare's focus on complex specialty drugs is fueling demand for real-world patient and treatment insights. These insights are used to measure the health and outcomes of patients across treatment settings to understand the real world impact of medicines on patients and the healthcare system. SHYFT's Real World Evidence (RWE) solution is experiencing significant traction driven by the need to quickly translate patient-centric intelligence and analytics to measure patient outcomes and drive clinical value. 

Additional 2015 highlights include:

"The life sciences industry is evolving quickly as new and rich data has enabled transformative change," said Zackary King, CEO and Founder of SHYFT Analytics. "Whether our customers are bringing new drugs to market or delivering better patient outcomes, they are laser focused on increasing efficiency and agility and we are excited to help them achieve their goals."
