Outsourcing Association to be founded in Central and Eastern Europe

Budapest – 21 October, 2008 - Outsourcing Associated bodies and Branch Associations from the Baltics, Ukraine, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania consolidate their resources and established Central and Eastern European Outsourcing Association (CEEOA) with the purpose to promote CEE region as competitive alternative to other Global offshoring destinations, and to increase services delivery quality and volumes under recognized standards.

Central and East European (CEE) countries are very small players in the Global market for IT and business process outsourcing. Lack of international trade practice and modern business management competencies by CEE vendors are among the factors keeping CEE region from realizing considerable opportunities created by globalization.

Therefore CEEOA strives to attract considerable attention to the region as an offshore outsourcing location, along with thousands of qualified graduates entering the marketplace each year. Service providers in these countries offer geographic proximity combined with cultural and language affinities, constantly improved business viabilities and services delivery capabilities, and openness to collaborate. The macro economical and political environment is stable, infrastructure is well developed.

CEEOA focus is on all service areas, not only IT, BPO and high tech industries, as its important to consider outsourcing as a non industry specific phenomenon. CEEOA is an open platform for all the organizations and businness associations in the region who are willing to join it or to contrubute to the accomplishment of its goals.

CEEOA operates as an independent professional advisory body on networking partnership basis, - its critical Objective is to create, develop and communicate positive image and main value proposition (-s) of CEE region as competitive alternative to other global IT, business processes and manufacturing outsourcing destinations.

The Association also strives to develop the internal market, where outsourcing should be promoted as a useful management tool for companies ranging from different industries in CEE region. Other Objectives are: to promote transparent and open business environment, CEE regional and international networking that builds operational value by promising and delivering high quality products and services at fair prices over the time, and by building strong economic, technical and social ties among the members of CEEOA and free competition; to improve business viabilities and services delivery capabilities of CEE Service providers; to promote creation and introduction of science-intensive technologies, the development of information society; to encourage each CEE country to increase the level of collaboration between government, companies, and universities to ensure that students gain the skills that companies require.

CEEOA intends to achieve these Objectives with the use of different marketing communication tools as PR, ATL and BTL activities, and the establishment of standardized certifications of Vendors‘ qualification. Besides initiating permanent researches to follow the main indicators of outsourcing, political, economic, and investment market features, Association wishes to maintain value added relationship network with associated outsourcing industry bodies, chambers of trade and industry and professional associations globally, while creating a single information flow promoting and sharing the best practices, expert information and research findings, benefits and innovative solutions in the outsourcing industry from CEE.
