Auslagern nach Sudafrika

first_imgDa Unternehmen weltweit auf den zunehmenden Kosten- und Preisdruck reagieren, transformiert sich Sudafrika zu einem international bevorzugten Standort fur die Auslagerung von Geschaftsablaufen.Das Outsourcing von Geschaftsablaufen ist ein weltweiter Trend und die Branche, die einen Jahresumsatz von 130 Milliarden US-Dollar vorweisen kann, wird nach Erwartungen in den kommenden funf Jahren um ca. 50% wachsen.Bei dieser Art des Outsoucings werden bestimmte Geschaftsablaufe, die in der Regel unternehmensintern abgewickelt werden, einem Dienstleister (z. B. Kundenbetreuungs- oder Callcenter) uberlassen.Als Schlusselsektor im Regierungsprogramm zur Ankurblung des Wirtschaftswachstums wurde das Outsourcing von Geschaftsablaufen erkannt. In diesem Bereich rechnet das Land mit 25.000 direkten und 75.000 indirekten Arbeitsplatzen, die bis 2009 die Wirtschaft des Landes um 7,95 Milliarden Rand bereichern werden.IT-Outsourcing ist ebenfalls eine Wachstumsbranche in Sudafrika. Die Vielfalt des lokalen Marktes (Know-how aus den Industrielandern und die Gegebenheiten eines Entwicklungslandes) macht das Land zu einem idealen Testlabor fur neue Innovationen.IT-Outsourcing macht mehr als ein Drittel des 30 Milliarden Rand schweren Marktes fur IT-Dienstleistungen, wie eine 2008 durchgefuhrte Studie der Unternehmensberatung IDC belegt.Die internationale Forschungsgruppe Gartner sieht Sudafrika unter den wichtigsten 30 Outsourcing-Lander fur Software-Entwicklung, womit das Land 2007 gleichauf mit Israel in der Region Europa, Nahost und Afrika sowie mit Australien und Indien weltweit liegt.Calling .ZADer Zeitschrift Business Day zufolge ist die lokale Callcenter-Branche seit 2003 um ca. 8% pro Jahr gewachsen. 54.000 Arbeitsplatze bietet dieser Bereich, der mit 0,92 zum Bruttoinlandsprodukt Sudafrikas beitragt.Ein 2007 lanciertes staatlich finanziertes Outsourcing-Unterstutzungsprogramm zielt auf die Verbesserung der sudafrikanischen Wettbewerbsfahigkeit ab und bietet 1,1 Milliarden Rand an Investitionsanreizen. Der Plan konzentriert sich auf:Eine breit angelegte Marketing-Strategie.Ein staatliches Unterstutzungsprogramm mit Investitions- und Schulungszuschussen.Gute preisliche Rahmenbedingungen im Bereich Telekommunikation.WettbewerbsvorteileFur Sudafrika sprechen viele Faktoren, wie z. B.:Ein erstklassiges Serviceniveau im Callcenter-Bereich.Eine hohe Management- und Dienstleistungskompetenz in Kombination mit umfassendem Finanz-Know-how, insbesondere in den Bereichen Versicherungen, Hypotheken/Darlehen und Inkasso.Zeitzonen-kompatibel mit Europa.Eine hervorragende Beherrschung der englischen Sprache: neutrale Akzente, die fur westliche Markte leicht verstandlich sind.Ein gunstiger Wechselkurs.Ein hohes staatliches Engagement.Staatlich unterstutzte Anreize wie z. B. Existenzgrundungs- und Expansionszuschusse und reduzierte Telekommunikationskosten.Eine hoch entwickelte und im Wachstum begriffene Telekommunikationsbranche.Die Regierung ergreift Maßnahmen zur Gewahrleistung einer preisgunstigen und besser verfugbaren Bandbreitenkapazitat zur Ermoglichung von preiswerteren internationalen Telefongesprachen. Großprojekte zur Verlegung von Unterwasser-Glasfaserkabeln entlang der Ost- und Westkuste Afrikas zur Verbesserung der Kommunikation des Kontinents mit dem Rest der Welt werden in Angriff genommen.Die ganze Welt in einem LandZu den internationalen Unternehmen, die sich bereits fur Sudafrika als Outsourcing-Land entschieden haben, gehoren: IBM, Fujitsu Siemens, Lufthansa, Virgin, Sykes, Avis und Car Phone Warehouse.Sudafrikas Engagement fur die Outsourcing-Branche wurde 2007 mit der Entscheidung zum Bau eines 125 Mio. Rand teuren Callcenters mit 1.500 Arbeitsplatzen im Gewerbepark Coega, außerhalb von Port Elizabeth in der Provinz Ostkap, bekraftigt.Der BPO-Park erstreckt sich uber funf Hektar im Coega-Gewerbepark und umfasst Schulungseinrichtungen und Freizeitangebote. Nach Bekunden des Verwaltungsunternehmens ist das Areal auf verschiedene Szenarien ausgelegt und bietet optimale Voraussetzungen fur eine Vielzahl von Investoren.Weitere Beispiele fur kurzlich erfolgte Investitionen: Im Mai 2008 eroffnete der Ölkonzern Royal Dutch Shell ein Callcenter in Kapstadt. Dieses Callcenter wird Shell-Kunden in Belgien, Luxemburg und den Niederlanden betreuen. Afrikaans-sprechende Mitarbeiter werden fur Gesprache in niederlandischer und flamischer Sprache speziell geschult.  Im November 2007 begann der US-amerikanische Outsourcing-Riese TeleTech mit dem Bau einer neuen Niederlassung (der ersten auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent) in den Außenbezirken von Kapstadt. Letzte Aktualisierung: September 2008SAinfo reporter.

British Airways jumbo wing slices through building

first_imgSouth Africa’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has reported that a Boeing 747-400 operating flight BA34 from Johannesburg to London Heathrow, impacted an office building after turning onto the wrong taxiway.The crew of BA34 was instructed to use taxiway B but followed the narrower taxiway M, causing the wing to slice through the office building.  According to ACSA, the airport authority operating Johannesburg’s Tambo International Airport, about 6 meters of the right hand wing tip sliced through about 20 meters of the building. The impact effectively separated the roof from the building causing substantial damage to both the building and the aircraft. A kerosene spill from the fully fuelled jumbo was contained by the airport fire services.Four ground staff in the building suffered minor injuries. All 202 passengers and crew were evacuated and put up in hotels.Harriet Tolputt, head of media for charity Oxfam was on the plane and posted a photo on social media showing the wing embedded into the the two-story building.

‘Tata, you are in our prayers’

first_imgImage source: Nelson Mandela Centre of MemoryBRAND SOUTH AFRICA joined the rest of the country on Monday in welcoming the news of former president Nelson Mandela’s release from hospital, saying it shared the joy of Mandela’s family and wishing him “peace and comfort” at his home in Johannesburg.“On behalf of all South Africans: Tata, you are in our thoughts and prayers,” Brand South Africa said in a statement.“We share the joy of the Mandela family at the discharge of Nelson Mandela after 89 days in hospital. May he find peace and comfort in his home, among his relatives and friends, so that his continuing medical care can proceed with dignity.”Mandela was discharged from hospital in Pretoria on Sunday morning in order to continue receiving treatment for a respiratory illness at home.The Presidency said that the 95-year-old former statesman’s condition “remains critical and is at times unstable”, but that his team of doctors were convinced that he would receive the same level of intensive care at his home that he had been receiving in hospital.Mandela’s home has been reconfigured to allow him to receive intensive care there. “The health care personnel providing care at his home are the very same who provided care to him in hospital,” the Presidency said. “If there are health conditions that warrant another admission to hospital in future, this will be done.”During his stay in hospital, he received constant visits from family, friends and colleagues – and messages of support in the thousands from across the country and all over the world.“We are all grateful for the outstanding care he received in hospital from a large team of medical specialists and nurses, which rescued him from the brink and which allowed for this miracle,” Brand South Africa said.“Even in grave illness, Madiba has continued to provide a model to the nation and to the world with his immense grace and fortitude. We have, all of us, much to learn from him.”Source: SAinfolast_img read more

As a hairdresser of 15 years i have had great lengths hair extensions (which cost around £600 for a full head), balmain (crap for the price), and additional lengths. These are really good quality, they can be coloured easily, basically you can do anything to them you do to your natural hair. They last months if you wash your hair with cool water and use a gentle shampoo (not pantene or tresme). Highly reccomend ladies you won’t be disappointed. Great value, as described, arrived when said it would,thankyou. Ordered saturday afternoon and they came within 24 hrs. Hair is excellent quality, i have dyed it, straightened it, curled it and had no problems at all. Great price, great value for money, easily attaches to your own hair. Definitely a 5 star product. Always fantastic the hair lasts and doesn’t matt. Matched up perfect with my bleach blonde. The nail tips are way too long and had to be cut in half. Looks like i been clipping sum seriously long toe nails all over my floor. But the hair itself is really good.My natural hair is so straight it won’t even curl but with this hair in it stayed curly for a long time. So i probably will reccomend and buy these again but the tips do need to be shortened. Good quality, impressed for the price.

Luis de Garrido’s Prefab Green Box

first_imgOne of the featured displays at the Construmat building showcase in Barcelona is the Spanish architect’s transportable garden houseGreen Box, a “garden” house billed as the latest in sustainable design from Spanish architect Luis de Garrido, is a big wedge of green prefab whose midsection is flipped upward to create a right-triangle tower.A prototype of the dwelling, constructed from April 4 through 19, is getting a close look this week at Construmat, the biennial building show whose 30th edition is underway this week in Garrido’s hometown, Barcelona.The home’s modular construction features a variety of prefabricated panels – some cement-wood sandwiches, some reinforced concrete, some metal – “to show in one building the three most suitable systems of modular construction,” according to a Green Box press release.Garrido, whose R4House (built from six recycled shipping containers) attracted plenty of attention at the 2007 Construmat, went with all recycled and recovered materials for this project, which is designed to be efficiently constructed, repaired, and dismantled by a team of only five people. (Click here for a PDF of the press release on the project as well as additional photos of the structure.)The Green Box gardens – the carpets of vegetation on the sloping roof and the vertical surface of the tower – consist of hardy, drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants.last_img read more
