Local data-analysis startup plans to add nearly 50 workers

An upstart Indianapolis-based data-analysis company founded by a former Aprimo Inc. executive plans to grow significantly over the next half-decade.

Perscio LLC announced Tuesday that it hopes to add 48 full-time employees making an average wage of $43 per hour by the end of 2019.

The company reached an agreement with the Indiana Economic Development Corp. in late December to receive up to $775,000 in tax credits and up to $60,000 in training grants if it realizes its job-creation plans. The company had just one full-time employee at the time of the agreement.

The firm, headquartered at 9247 N. Meridian St., analyzes data and uses analytics to help clients with their business strategies. Right now, that work is being done by three executives and several contractors and part-time employees. It plans to build a team of data scientists, software engineers and experienced business practitioners to expand the company.   

Perscio was founded last year by Bob Boehnlein, most recently the general manager for marketing operations at Dayton, Ohio-based Teradata Corp. He previously spent 10 years in executive marketing positions at Indianapolis-based Aprimo Inc. before it was acquired by Teradata in 2011 for $525 million.

"We started Perscio out of a passion to make the world of big data more approachable and usable,” Boehnlein said in a written statement. “Our goal is to make businesses grow faster using predictive analytics and open data sets.”
