Salling Group is Denmark’s largest retailer of the leading brands in fashion, interior design, lifestyle, wellness and food with several chains such as Netto, Føtex, Bilka, Salling and BR.
In 2009, Salling Group approached Ciklum in search of a technology partner to support their digital ambitions. They wanted to create a frictionless digital experience for their customers. They also needed to empower their staff with more efficient ways to perform their duties. Salling Group has 50,000 employees in 1,500 stores across Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Germany, which require seamless processes.
Salling Group required support on their digital transformation journey with solutions development. To make this happen, a dedicated development team was set up in Ciklum’s Pakistan hub with up to 18 highly skilled software engineers involved in this decade long partnership.
The latest project that Salling kicked off with Ciklum was a promotional planning tool. It will replace legacy systems that have become inefficient over the last 10-15 years.
Along with fully-fledged solutions, the Ciklum team has also developed a range of small applications for existing systems used by Salling Group. The team is acquiring new technologies fast and exploring new tools together with the client. Recently the team has started to share innovative ideas with the client for Salling Group to maintain and expand the competitive edge in retail.
Over the last 10 years, Ciklum has helped Salling Group to create numerous programs with development costs 40% less than in-house.
Ciklum/Salling Group cooperation started out on the ecommerce platform:
But has now moved to back office platforms like Store Application (PDA) where almost all store operations are handled on the device.
