The Fondation Méditerranéenne d’Études Stratégiques (FMES) has developed an economic intelligence labelling scheme for regional companies, designed to strengthen and protect their competitiveness and attractiveness. Netsystem, an information systems and digital transformation consulting firm based in Aix-en-Provence and Paris, is one of the 14 winning companies in this programme.
Strengthening the competitiveness and attractiveness of the region’s businesses
The Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region has made economic intelligence a priority in its action to promote the economic development of companies, and has therefore initiated an integrated and concerted approach in this field, at the service of companies in the region. The Fondation Méditerranéenne d’Études Stratégiques (FMES) has developed an economic intelligence labelling system for regional companies, designed to strengthen and protect their competitiveness and attractiveness. This label, validated by a committee bringing together representatives of the DGSI, the DRSD, the ANSSI and the DREETS (ex DIRECCTE), four state services, ensures a guarantee of quality and security for all the clients and partners of the labelled companies.
The aim of this call for expressions of interest is to offer regional SMEs and VSEs who wish to do so, a training and consultancy programme, adapted to the size of the company and the profile of the targeted personnel, which will enable them to strengthen the security of their know-how and their information assets.
“This label, which is unique in France to date, represents a definite added value for companies. It gives them a real comparative advantage when responding to public tenders or entering into new contracts, and favours their strategic positioning, particularly on international markets,” explains Florian Putaud, Economic Intelligence Project Manager at the FMES Institute.
Netsystem winner of the call for projects
Netsystem has obtained the “economic intelligence” label attesting to the quality of its systems for protecting its tangible and intangible assets. “This approach allows us to detect the signs of change, threats and development opportunities linked to information in our sectors of activity. In this way, we improve our information management processes for the benefit of our clients. explains Olivier Cazzulo, CEO of Netsystem.
