E-Commerce Provider Symmetrics Chooses Ciklum as its Outsourcing Partner

One of the leading German Magento partners is building nearshore development teams in Ukraine
Logo Ciklum (PresseBox) (Hannover, ) KYIV, Ukraine - Ciklum, a Danish innovative IT company specialized in nearshore software development, has helped building and supporting a large dedicated Magento software development team for Symmetrics GmbH, one of the world’s leading Magento Enterprise partners. This team includes project development, support operations, service as well as product developing.

After careful research and analysis of 350 software development outsourcing services providers, Symmetrics shortlisted 30 potential candidates and finally selected Ciklum as its partner. The key factor driving Symmetrics’ decision to outsource parts of its application development, support and product developing process is a significant shortage of appropriate qualified IT resources and skills within Germany. The company opted to outsource nearshore due to strong research and development potential and vast IT talent pool available in Eastern Europe.

Symmetrics’ management was impressed with the high quality of Ciklum’s HR and consultancy services, extensive recruitment network, overall reputation and responsiveness. But the final decision to partner with Ciklum was made after visiting its offices in Ukraine.

“We were impressed by Ciklum’s office infrastructure, realistic HR growth strategy for the next 18 months and overall dedication to IT talent support, development and retention via ongoing training and couching programs, PM camps and other IT events,” says Boris Lokschin, Symmetrics’ Founder and CEO. “Other advantages that Ciklum has over its competitors are transparent pricing structure, as well as development agility and scalability tailored to its business model.”

From the project initiation Symmetrics had very high requirements in terms of technical skills, quality of deliveries and business model. Ciklum built and is currently supporting development teams for Symmetrics in Kharkov, Ukraine’s second R&D and technology center after Kyiv. At present, Symmetrics’ e-commerce teams involve a two-digit number of IT specialists and are expected to grow quickly through 2011.

“In an ideal world Symmetrics would love to have all software developers in Hannover, but reality is different – our cooperation with Ciklum is one milestone for satisfying the high demands that we have to meet in our challenging E-commerce projects, product/service development and customer support”, says Boris Lokschin, looking forward to a fruitful cooperation.
