Through its Jabra brand, GN Netcom is a world leader in innovative hands-free audio Solutions.
Jabra needed a development partner to sustain its growth. Another challenge was the lack of highly-skilled developers in Denmark.
Jabra develops and markets a broad range of wireless and corded headsets for users in call centers and offices, including Unified Communications users. Jabra also develops and markets corded and Bluetooth headsets for voice communication, headphones for sports as well as in-car speakerphones for mobile users.
In 2014, Jabra needed a partner to sustain the capacity growth. The availability of highly-skilled developers in the Danish labor market was a great concern. They could not get the senior competencies they needed and thus, Jabra chose to look abroad for a solution.
Jabra hired their first team member in Ciklum in August 2014. Today, they have 13+ team members at Ciklum. Ciklum model has been a good solution for Jabra, as the company manages the team itself.
By partnering with Ciklum, Jabra has found the availability and cost level of highly-skilled IT professionals they were looking for.
Today, Jabra has a highly productive team. Søren explains, “The Ukrainian developers are ambitious and eager. They really want to do their best. Therefore, they often put in the extra effort, not because I ask them to, but because they really want to. When the team visits us in Denmark they bring with them a lot of energy. There’s another buzz in the office when they are here, more energy.”
