Accelerated Time-to-Market

Challenge

Betsson Group’s cooperation with Ciklum started in 2011, when the company needed to grow and to support its payment platforms. Instantly finding 20+ skilled software developers and architects experienced in payment solutions in Sweden or Malta was quite an undertaking.

Strategy

Betsson AB is a Swedish company that offers
a number of online gambling products such
as poker, sports betting and scratch cards through several wholly owned Malta-
based subsidiaries like BML Group Ltd and Betsson Malta Ltd. Betsson AB is listed on the NASDAQ Stockholm Large Cap List.

In 2011, Betsson had a demand for IT development resources as they were continuously expanding the existing team in Sweden. Betsson Group required both a cost effective alternative as well as a better suited location to find skilled resources quickly to be able to grow and to meet the demand.

Ciklum established a starter team of four developers, who two weeks later flew to the headquarters in Stockholm.

The total time from the first contact with Ciklum to the team startup was 6 weeks. We were surprised how fast the process was and how little resources we needed to invest.

Ongoing service innovation

The quality and efficiency of the nearshore team in Ukraine matches the client’s IT development team in Sweden. In 2015, the team grew to 50+ people from the original 4.

Ciklum offered Betsson to use the Project and Process Management Consulting program to find the gaps in the project development processes. The PPMC program addresses any cooperation and communication issues between the two locations in Ukraine and Sweden as well as integrate Agile processes into the team work.

Having the team here, working for us on a full-time basis with good talent has allowed us to be much more nimble and quicker than a lot of our competitors
