Converting Information into Intelligence

FLA Consultants – a company with a high level expertise in competitive and technological intelligence. 

FLA Consultants was created in 1977 by François Libmann. The original activity of the company consisted in consulting services in innovation, diversification and technology transfer. Querying databases was at the time only a work tool.

Gradually, FLA Consultants has acquired a real expertise of these tools and in the early 1980s developed its services in strategic information research and databases monitoring, which are still an important part of the company’s activity.

Since the development of Web technologies, we phased in our services the research and monitoring on the Web (blogs, forums, social networks, microblogging, etc).

Today we developed a global offer of services including...

Moreover, François Libmann has created in 1985 the press company Bases Publications, which publishes two professional letters Bases and Netsources in French language for the information professionals or anyone interested in Internet and Information Search issues.
