The Diplomat – Romanian Outsourcing Summit 2015 – What’s next?

p_6095-1683_280Dan Zaharia, senior leasing consultant, EXTIND Management: Outsourcing in the successful regional cities of Romania

Once with the opening of its Iasi-based IT Informal School and the newly opened office of RoGBC Moldova, EXTIND Management aligns the green building offer in the region to the needs of international corporate clients, by adopting the Polish model that also includes the state aid component, lacking in Romania in previous years.

„A fact is that in spite of the general opinion that Iasi and the northern part of Romania is poorly developed at the European level, the region holds significant resources for business development and investments,” said Dan Zaharia, senior leasing consultant at EXTIND Management.

„The competition is not formed within the country; Cluj or Timisoara are not competition for Iasi, as each has different competences. Instead, the stakeholders’ focus should be targeting markets such as Morocco, Guatemala, Vietnam. Bucharest is a saturated market in terms of business development and many companies present in the capital are opening subsidiaries in other cities in Romania, in order to resist the salary spiral,” he added.

„There is certain subjectivity in terms of choosing a city for opening a business or expanding it, besides the concrete metric regarding people salaries, rents, and technical skills,” as Zaharia explained. Starting in 2007, Dan Zaharia, as „business ambassador” of Iasi, manages rental transactions for businesses in Iasi, also expanding the lobby endeavours to Cluj and Chisinau.

„For instance, Iasi alone delivers around 1,000 specialists pipeline, each coming from four relevant specialized faculties in Iasi, including the Faculty of Computer Sciences,” said Zaharia. „Both Cluj-Napoca and Iasi delivers proper conditions to IT and outsourcing investments, due to their strong academic environment, with over 70,000 students, the advanced telecom infrastructure and a continuous flux of IT specialists,” he concluded.

JLL: Tendinte in imobiliare datorate outsourcingului

tendinte in outsourcing real-estate

Marius Scuta (National Director, Head of Office Department and Tenant Representation, JLL) a sustinut in cadrul Romanian Outsourcing Summit un mesaj extrem de direct despre cum partea de real-estate nu mai e printre ultimele capitole de analizat in cadrul unei analize de tip deep-dive pentru evaluarea unui oras pentru deschiderea unei locatii de catre companiile ce activeaza in IT & Outsourcing.

De asemenea, Marius a continuat prezentarea oraselor secundare si tertiare din Romania interesante pentru dezvoltarea de birouri pentru mari companii de servicii externalizate.

De altfel JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle) este una din primele companii imobiliare internationale care au pus pe radar astfel de orase.

Harta cladirilor de birouri din principalele orase din Romania

DSCF7408Echipa JLL lucreaza de cateva luni la o initiativa inovatoare pe piata inchirierilor de birouri din Romania: o harta cu cladirile de birouri din principale orase din tara (Iasi, Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Brasov si bineinteles Bucuresti). E o miscare contra-curent intr-o lume a omniprezentului GPS, dar care are simbolistica aparte de stabilitate.

Pe aceste harti sunt reprezentate 142 de cladiri existente de birouri din Bucuresti, 11 in Timisoara, 18 in Iasi, 10 in Brasov si 21 in Cluj-Napoca. Am avut onoarea sa contribui la actualizarea hartilor cu cladirile de birouri moderne pentru Iasi si Cluj-Napoca.

Publicarea acestor harti reprezinta in mod clar trendul ascendent pe care piata inchirierilor de birouri il are in contextul dezvoltarii fulminante in Romania a industriei IT si a serviciilor externalizate non-IT.

RoGBC Moldova – din ianuarie 2015

RoGBC Moldova2In prima parte a lunii decembrie 2014, in cadrul intalnirii de sfarsit de an a membrilor Romania Green Building Council (RoGBC) am avut ocazia sa anunt ca in ianuarie 2015 vom lansa la Iasi filiala RoGBC Moldova.

Această filială va beneficia de infrastructura și activitățile extinse la nivel național ale organizației, va oferi platforma de training Green Building Professional, va organiza evenimente pe plan local, concentrându-se pe beneficiile ce pot fi aduse părților interesate din regiune. RoGBC încurajează un cadru legislativ favorabil construcțiilor sustenabile.

Reducerea impozitului pe clădirile verzi este o inițiativă susținută de organizație în vederea sprijinirii administrației locale în procesul de atragere a investițiilor în acest sector, creării de locuri de muncă verzi și a unui mediu construit de calitate superioară, recompensând clădirile verzi certificate la standarde ridicate care implementează în prezent cerințele directivelor europene pentru 2020. RoGBC conduce numeroase proiecte demonstrative prin care dorește să demonstreze faptul că se pot obține în prezent clădiri cu Consum Net Zero de Energie care pot să atingă cel mai înalt nivel de performanță al clădirilor verzi.

IDEO Iasi – nominalizat la ELLE Decoration Romanian Design Awards

nominalizareCentrul de afaceri IDEO Iasi (www.ideo.com.ro) a fost nominalizat dintre alte 21 de proiecte la categoria „Cea mai buna amenajare a unui birou de companie” in cadrul ELLE Decoration Romanian Design Awards 2014.

img-responsive-IDEO_1Ma bucura faptul ca si in Iasi exista cladiri de birouri care trec dincolo de calculul rece al unei astfel de functiuni specifice si de pragmatismul unui oras secundar, reusind sa obtina recunoasterea din punct de vedere al designului la nivel national.

Designerii arh. Iulian Nicolau si Laura Balan Ianis (Deco Design) au hotarat sa contrazica la interior sobrietatea specifica functiunii principale, omniprezenta in imobilele de birouri, propunandu-si sa evite o suprapunere intre aceasta si pesimismul perioadei economice dificile pe care o traverseaza toate domeniile de activitate.

Ca atare, din ambientul interior au disparut nuantele specifice de gri, gri-verzui, verde, negru, gri petrol, impunandu-se spectaculos, drept accente care personalizeaza nivelurile, nuante de lila, roz, rosu carmin, maro ciocolata, galben auriu, bronz, exprimate atat prin intermediul finisajelor clasic dedicate functiunii office – sticla laminata, var, otel inox – dar si a unor finisaje speciale, mai putin intalnite in spatiile comune ale unor astfel de functiuni – tapete, piele, lemn.

Cele 71 de firme din IT&Outsourcing care au depasit pragul de 1 milion lei in 2013 ca cifra de afaceri

articol Ziarul de Iasi 11.11.2014

Se pare ca in judetul Iasi, industria IT&BPO a depasit agricultura ca nivel al cifrei de afaceri.

Conform articolul scris de Diego Ciobotaru si publicat in Ziarul de Iasi din 11 nov.2014, 71 de companii cu sediul social in Iasi au depasit in 2013 pragul de 1 milion de lei ca cifra de afaceri. In completarea articolului din ziar, doresc sa public lista acestor 71 de companii. Vestea buna e ca alte 44 de companii au avut in 2013 cifra de afaceri intre 500.000 si 1 milion de lei, asa ca e posibil ca in 2014 sa depaseasca pragul de 1 milion de lei.

Interesant e ca 132 de companii au realizat cifra de afaceri de peste 100.000 lei / angajat in 2013.
