Flax has joined OpenSource Connections!

On February 1st 2019 Flax’s Managing Director Charlie Hull joined OpenSource Connections (OSC), Flax’s long-standing US partner, as a senior Managing Consultant. Charlie manages a new UK division of OSC who also acquired some of Flax’s assets and brands. OSC are a highly regarded organisation in the world of search and relevance, wrote the seminal book Relevant Search and run the popular Haystack relevance conference. Their clients include the US Patent Office, the Wikimedia Foundation and Under Armour and their services include comprehensive training, Discovery engagements, Trusted Advisor consulting and expert implementation.

Lemur Consulting Ltd., which as most of you will know traded as Flax, continued to operate and to complete current projects in early 2019 but did not take on any new business after January 2019. All future Flax enquiries are now redirected to OSC where Charlie will as ever be very happy to discuss requirements and how OSC’s expert team (which may include some familiar faces!) might help.

We are all very excited about this new development as it will create a larger team of independent search & relevance experts with a global reach. We fully expect to build on Flax’s 18 year history of providing high quality search solutions as part of OSC. We are continuing to run the London Lucene/Solr Meetup and attending and speaking at other events on search related topics.

If you have any questions about the above please do contact us.
