U.S. trip helps Azeris


Svetlana Pulatova knows all about bridging the gap between Azeri and international business. As business manager of Gateways, one of Baku's leading real estate companies, Pulatova has been housing and providing retail space for expatriates and their families for the last four years.

"It can be a challenge to manage people's expectations if they have just arrived in the country," she says. "Particularly since the terrorist attacks last year in the United States many of our clients have expressed some concerns about living and working abroad, so to some extent we have to help reassure them."

Part of her overall strategy has been to get the company well known in Baku's international business community, gaining a widely respected reputation which people are prepared to pass onto others.

"For us the mark of our success has been that people are always passing on our name as a reference to new arrivals. In a purely business sense this saves us money on advertising but much more importantly it gives those who have just landed here a sense that there is the organizations out there who can help ease them in."

And with organizations like BP, Ernst & Young and the Red Cross using her company to help house their staff its seems that Gateways reputation is well established. As part of her continuing efforts at understanding the needs of her market Pulatova recently took part in an internship program in the U.S. with eight other Azeri businesses. The

'Community Connections' scheme run by the U.S. government's education and development program aims at bringing together U.S. and Azeri companies with similar interests.

Pulatova spent time working with U.S. real estate giants Christies where she noticed some similarities between the ways in which their two companies work.

"The main emphasis of both our companies was the same," she says. "To be successful you have to recognize that the demands of the client have to be your first priority, they are the centre of your business. But it's also important for both of our companies to continue to look after our clients even after they have moved into a property we look after or have sold."

The major difference between U.S. business practice in the real estate sector and here is Azerbaijan is that the U.S. market is more focused on sales side, with American mortgage products and lending services more developed.

But things are changing, "since multinationals can but homes here there has been a greater growth in the sales market. Embassies, multinationals and individuals are growing keen on the idea of purchasing a home in Azerbaijan," says Svetlana. Other Azeris on the U.S. intern scheme agree that there are some major differences in the way banking and finance support is run in the States.

Ramiz Jabbarli, general manager of RJ Enterprises, which specializes in professional household equipment, also attended the month- long scheme in the U.S.

"There is a lack of banking support here in Azerbaijan," he says. "There simply isn't the credit culture that you find in the U.S. When a company here wishes to borrow to facilitate growth they often find banks either reluctant to lend or they charge very high interest rates which make borrowing all but impossible."

But Ramiz noted other differences too. "It was very interesting from a marketing point of view. Cleary U.S. companies spend much of their time and resources on understanding customer perceptions," he says. "There is a much greater opportunity to sell in the U.S. but the margins are much less than ours. This has to be set against the fact that their customer base is so much stronger. In the end perhaps this higher market demand is what pushes them harder."
