PwC has created a dedicated SAP consulting team in Romania. The practice of the Romanian organisation of the global Big Four firm will be led by Radu Bădiceanu, who has been hired especially for the new SAP arm.

PwC Romania is expanding its technology consulting services offering in the Eastern European nation via the creation of a dedicated SAP consulting team. The team will deliver projects both locally and to Western European customers.

According to Statista data, the Romanian management consulting sector is presently worth over $4 billion, and could grow by almost half a billion more by the end of the decade. This success stems in part from Romania’s burgeoning technology scene, with the country presently controlling 5% of the global offshore software development market as the world’s third leading software exporter behind India and China. Developing technological solutions in the region is consequently essential business sense for resident consultancies.

According to Bogdan Belciu, Partner of Management Consulting Services at PwC Romania, technology is strongly embedded in the PwC consultants' DNA. The new SAP initiative is therefore playing to the firm’s strengths, building on its offer of management and technology consulting services to "help our customers successfully navigate the challenges of adapting to the new digital economy."

Belciu concluded, “To further strengthen this commitment to technology, besides the SAP team we are developing in Romania, at regional level, PwC also acquired Outbox, a Polish company specialised in offering SAP Hybris services and solutions CRM.”

PwC aims to develop this consultancy team and reach 25-30 consultants specialising in this area by the end of 2018. The leader of the new SAP consulting division will be Radu Bădiceanu, who, prior to joining PwC, worked for various SAP consulting firms where he was responsible for team development, as well as delivering SAP design projects to local and European customers. With extensive experience in delivering SAP projects across Europe, Asia and Africa, Radu will focus both on delivering end-to-end projects as well as on customer support on specific topics such as the new regulations in the financial area.

Commenting on his new challenge, Bădiceanu remarked, "I'm delighted to join PwC and set up this new team in PwC. I firmly believe that technology in general and SAP in particular must be used to bring and maximise the added value that any business produces, regardless of the industry we are talking about. In this context, our mission is very well defined: we want to help our customers benefit from the best SAP solution in order to be able to innovate, but also to streamline their own business.”

PwC is the latest consulting firm to expand its operations within Romania. Earlier in the Autumn, Accenture unveiled plans to employ some 100 people in Brasov, Romania, over the coming year. The global management consulting and professional services company said it will open a new Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) centre in December. Earlier this year Deloitte also launched a new hub in Romania.
