You see, what you get. And what you get is an employee for a certain price with administration, office facilities and everything included. And most importantly – it works.” Harald Riis Thomsen, CEO and Founder www.worldclimatecommunity.com “ Having chosen to engage with Ciklum for our EPiServer portal development it has been a relief to see technically competent, intelligent and pro-active Ciklum employees handle all matters contractual, planning, estimation and development - in a manner most IT-management consultancy houses in Western Europe would be hard pressed to top.” Simon Kaastrup-Olsen , eMarketing Manager www.zen-sys.com “ Following the recommended best practices from Ciklum has resulted in nearshore operations reaching the productivity level comparable to an onshore team in less than two years and making the Ukrainian team an invaluable and integral part of Zensys’ development department.   The productivity of my team in Ukraine is as what I would expect from a Danish team but the total cost of ownership is only about 50% of what I would have to pay in Denmark! I can't imagine not having my nearshore team aboard.” Jørgen Franck, SW Manager
