  7. 7. As the world market for ICT continues to evolve and demand for software engineering increas- es, Serbia is well placed both geographically and structurally to provide a cost effective and reliable alternative to other, already established markets. An outstanding pool of intellectual capital, attractive labour costs, excellent worker skills, a good communications network and a high fluency in English are just some of the key com- petitive advantages that have already attracted international software companies to expand to Serbia. Software giants Many leading global IT companies already have an own nearshore development center in Belgrade, Serbia: Microsoft Redhat IBM Oracle Intel Hewlett Packard Siemens SAP Motorola Cisco Systems Ericsson Telenor Population: With approx. 8 million inhabitants one of the largest countries in the region Geographic Position: South East Europe Capital: Belgrade with approx. 3 million inhabitants Time Zone: GMT+1 – same time zone as Zurich, Berlin, Vienna, Stockholm Airport: Belgrade, reachable in less than 2 flight hours from most European cities Why Nearshoring in Serbia? “Serbia has great potential in the IT industry, that is why the world’s biggest software company decided to open a development centre in Belgrade.” “It’s not a coincidence that Intel opened its regional office in Serbia. It has a great strategic position and a capable and well educated workforce.” Mr. Christopher Brennan Central Eastern Europe General Manager, Microsoft Mr. John E. Davis Vice President and Director of the Global Program Development, Intel 8
  8. 8. Great ITTalent Pool at Lower Costs right Next Door BELGRADE
  9. 9. Large talent pool Natural sciences are traditionally very popular in Serbia. Around 4’500 engineers graduate from a Technical Uni- versity each year. Government subsidy programmes and investments support this trend also in the future. Good availability There is no distinct“War for Talent”in Serbia yet, so the availability of highly qualified software developers is much better than in Western Europe. Easy coordination The same time zone, similar cultures as well as a compa- rable working attitude guarantee an efficient collabora- tion. Communication Above average English skills enable easy communication. Competitive costs Labour and operating costs in Serbia are significantly lower than in Western Europe. We pass this substantial cost advantage directly on to our clients. Geographical proximity Belgrade can be reached from the most major Western European airports in less than 2 flight hours.   High Mobility Serbian citizens can travel to the Schengen area without visa. For foreign citizens is the entry to Serbia visa-free as well. Locational advantages at a glance „SerbiaisbecomingoneoftheEurope’smostattractiveIThotspots.

  13. 13. Salary Depending on experience and seniority, education and expertise in a specific programming language, gross monthly salaries in Serbia range from EUR 1,550 to EUR 2,550. Salaries are negotiated individ- ually with each candidate.  Service fee The InterVenture fee is a monthly all-inclusive fee, which covers all operating and administrative InterVenture services together with the infrastructure costs. Only possible travel expenses and special software licences are excluded from the fee. One-time setup fee When hiring a new employee a one-time setup fee is charged. This fee covers all recruiting costs and the provision of a fully equipped workplace. Our services are typically charged with a monthly rate. Thereby we use a transparent pricing model that consists of the developer‘s gross salary and a service fee (InterVenture fee). In this way the client has full transparency and keeps track of the costs at all times. For new employees a one-time setup fee applies in addition. Salaries and Costs 14
