With around 80 permanent employees, JABA-Translations is the biggest Portuguese translation service provider and is seen as one of the most important translation companies on the Iberian peninsular. The growth-oriented company sets international standards for first-class Portuguese and Spanish translation services, localization and desktop publishing.
For Joaquim Alves, CEO and founder of JABA-Translations, selecting the right management system was a top-priority task - after all, this decision has a great influence on every aspect of the company's development, as he reports: "A company of our size has complex corporate processes and structures. As a result, responsible business management with comprehensive planning, controlling and monitoring are absolutely essential. Consequently, we were looking for a management system that would offer flexible and long-term support not only for our existing processes and structures, but also with regard to our continuous company growth. At the same time, it was important that the company behind the product shared our values in terms of customer focus, quality and cooperation based on partnership. On the basis of these requirements, the decision for Plunet was a quick and very straightforward one", underlines Alves.
Sufian Reiter, who is now Head of Sales for North and South America, has acted as a consultant since 2008 to many of Plunet's larger customers on their company processes and suitable technology solutions. He closes by adding: "We are delighted to be able to welcome JABA-Translations as a new customer. With Plunet BusinessManager, all of the business processes at translation service providers can be optimized. From sales and project management to controlling and senior management - our solution increases productivity and profitability in all areas of the company. With Plunet, JABA-Translations has made a choice for the right management solution and the right partner."
