Transcom expands in Eastern Europe and opens new contact center in Serbia
Many of the world’s best-known companies have recognized the economic potential of Serbia, including Transcom, having recently opened a new contact center in Belgrade. Thanks to its geographical position at the crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe, Serbia is often referred to as the continent’s gateway and this strategic location makes it an excellent country in which to invest.
The new Belgrade site - situated in the city center district of Vracar - was officially opened in the summer of 2014. The inauguration represents a further step forward for Transcom’s geographical expansion in Eastern Europe, as this area is a key component in the Central & South Region’s growth strategy.

The new Belgrade Customer Experience Center, with a capacity of over 180 workstations, will initially provide near shore services, mainly for the German market. But because of the high rate of multilingualism which is a distinctive feature of the Serbian capital, they will shortly be joined by other cost effective services in the main European languages, particularly English, which is very widely spoken, as well as in Italian, French and Spanish.
As of today, the contact center provides customer services for an important German internet and media company and a prestigious Luxembourg-based bank . The site went operational in August 2014 with the delivery of French-language services for the Luxembourg bank. The opening ceremony was attended by Transcom management and the entire Serbian project team, who celebrated our important partnership together with the Client. The ceremony was brought to a close, as usual, by a toast and the cutting of the cake prepared to mark the occasion.

The new Transcom site in Belgrade illustrates our commitment to finding new delivery solutions in countries that can guarantee our clients a perfect balance between costs and competitiveness. In the specific case of Serbia, the local market is not yet saturated and as a result the available workforce is low-cost but with a high level of foreign language knowledge.
