3 Years of Successfupel Cooration: Interview with Isabel Van Obergen, CEO of SpartaNova
February 23, 2015 – We are pleased to share that Isabel Van Obergen, Chief Executive Officer of SpartaNova, kindly agreed to participate in a Skype call organized by Skelia. Confirming Skelia’s commitment to delivering high quality and cost-effective IT outsourcing services, the SpartaNova senior executive shed light on key aspects of cooperation that make a real difference to the business. Please, follow the interview below to find out more details.
Skelia: What Skelia has been doing for you?
Isabel: Three years, Skelia has been delivering IT services to SpartaNova. Our successful cooperation has evolved into a long-term partnership where we work with at least one software developer from Skelia on a regular basis. Sometimes, we scale up to two or three IT experts during peak workloads. So, it is very important for us to have flexible access to a pool of IT professionals that we can hire for our projects on demand.
Skelia: How would you summarize your experience with Skelia?
Isabel: We are very satisfied with Skelia as an IT service provider. Even though we have a client-supplier relationship, it feels like a true partnership rooted in product understanding and an honest interest in our business case evolution.
Skelia also offers a good balance between price and quality, resulting in affordable yet qualitative resources that are well managed from project and HR perspectives.
Skelia: Why would you recommend Skelia to others?
Isabel: I would definitely recommend Skelia because I believe they go beyond just giving proper IT profiles. They combine the advantage of cost efficiency and high quality with the advantage of true partnership relations. And this makes a significant difference to our business.
Skelia: How is your communication going with the remote team at Skelia?
Isabel: We communicate via Skype on a daily basis. While starting new projects, we always try to meet our distant team members in person during exchange visits so as to get acquainted with the people and the business.
Skelia: What do you like the most about your cooperation with Skelia?
Isabel: When we need new resources or new competencies, Skelia is very reactive to that demand. Within a very short time frame, the Skelia HR team can bring the required profiles. This really helps us make quick business decisions as to commitments towards our clients.
Skelia: What do you expect in the future from our cooperation?
Isabel: The past three years of doing business with Skelia has laid the foundation of a partnership which we believe will continue in the further growth of our business and projects and related IT development outsourcing activities.
