Over 90% of the companies from FORTUNE 500 use competitive intelligence as a way of sustaining the firms decisions. Western European countries are present in this rankings with many companies from different industries and business sectors. In contrast, with a single exception, companies from the East Europe are not part from Fortune 500: a company from Poland managed to rank in this top on the 454th place. This says a lot about the power that the resource of intelligence has in a company.
In the digital economy characterized by rapidity, where the unpredictability is the only certainty, more and more large companies develop their own competitive intelligence structure. That is why they turn to retired officers of the intelligence services, as they have the experience, knowledge and skills necessary for the collection and the processing of information.

As a result, they are unsustainable for small and medium sized companies. Therefore, through our program for outsourcing to companies, we consider the delicate issue of this costs as resolved.
