During the past years, we have transformed from a strategic managment consultancy into a full-blooded strategic management software provider. The software of course being FIBRES: the simple web app for AI-assisted collaboration on future trends and strategy.
Since FIBRES today is our main bread and butter, it only came as a natural step to change the name of the company as well. So here we are – FIBRES Online Ltd!
The new company name highlights our focus in who we really are - the developer of the perfect strategy platform, FIBRES. Also, it is the one final mental shift and certainly a major cornerstone for our own team.
The company name change does not affect our customers or partners since we carry on operating as the same legal entity and in the same way as before.
There is even another piece of other happy news to share! FIBRES Online is heavily about our people, with each member of the team being a key part of the whole equation.
Since August, our team is again stronger with Ms Maija Forsell as our new Head of Customer Engagement. She is already amazing at her work, understanding customers and finding the perfect solution for them. Maija is a keen learner and has a strong background in ICT but also in management related businesses. You can read a bit more about her here.
It's been an amazing ride so far and the whole team of FIBRES Online are looking forward to all the potential the future brings! This year alone, we’ve started collaboration and partnerships around Europe, and continued to develop FIBRES based on the valuable feedback from our users. I could not be more proud of the team and our community as we speak.
All the best,
Panu Kause, CEO
