Our history

25 successful years ...

In 1998, our company was founded and began its journey in contact center software development. This was the beginning of an era in which technology revolutionised customer service.

VoIP (Voice-over-IP) gained momentum and enabled cost-effective and high-quality telecommunication. Contact centres began to integrate VoIP technology to improve their communications.

Sikom becomes a partner in the "EMBASSI" research project, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Sikom exhibits at CeBIT in co-operation and with a joint stand together with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

Sikom presents itself and its products at CeBIT with its first own stand.

The German Federal Foreign Office becomes a Sikom customer. An information system with a switchboard and fax retrieval service is provided. With the Sikom system, people can obtain early information from the Federal Foreign Office on entry recommendations, immunisation and security issues for individual countries.

The cooperation with Siemens deepens and other major customers are interested in Sikom solutions, including Neckermann, the data processing company of the savings banks, dvg Hannover and the call center division of C&A.

Multi-channel communication becomes standard as customers expect seamless transitions between different channels. Contact centers adapt to meet this demand.

The company's growth is healthy and continuous. Sikom has 16 employees and the list of well-known partners and customers is growing. Another trade fair becomes a fixed date for Sikom: CallCenterWorld (CCW) in Berlin.

With the "SmartCenter", Sikom now has a technically high-quality contact center solution and well-known companies discover Sikom as experts for voice-controlled communication solutions.

2004 brings further technological advances, including improved reporting and analysis tools. Contact centers become more efficient and are able to respond better to customer needs.

With 25 employees, Sikom has considerably expanded its resources. In addition to the headquarters in Heidelberg and the development center in Zwickau, there are four further sales locations in Germany.

Sikom organises a "Best Practice Day" for the first time, and the event, which has been held annually ever since, is later continued under the name " Sprache ohne Grenzen" (Language without Borders).

Users from different companies and sectors are given the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss specific topics and questions relating to the technology with each other and with Sikom experts. The forum continues to this day and will continue to do so in the future, with the dates often being linked to " Sprache ohne Grenzen ". Both conferences generate a great response.
