We are proud to present our renewed Forenom brand. We have a new look, but our core is still the same: we are here to accommodate people all around the Nordics. With our new strong brand, we are even better equipped to respond to changes in the accommodation market and further accelerate our fast growth in the Nordic countries.

 Watch the video to see what this brand is all about:

The brand renewal covers our mission, slogan, manifesto and visual identity, including our logo, brand images, colors, fonts and graphic elements. The revamp of the visual image is the most visible part of the change, but most of the work involved learning to understand customer needs and clarifying the growth plan.

The objective of the brand makeover was to create a clearer, unified Forenom brand, while raising awareness of the entire industry. To highlight the ease of services offered to our customers a new slogan, ”stay easy”, was chosen for Forenom. This means, we work hard to make your stay easy, so you can feel at home.

We have grown from a one-man company into the Nordic market leader in just 18 years. In addition to strong organic growth, we have accelerated our expansion through corporate acquisitions, with all acquired companies being brought under the Forenom brand.

”We want the new brand identity to communicate our pioneering approach to home-like accommodation and digital technology, as well as the extremely hard work our team does to serve our customers every day. For example, it is routine for us to find and furnish an apartment according to a client’s needs in just one day. We want to let our great, can-do spirit show to the outside world as well.” says Johannes Kangas, CEO of Forenom.

We also made a manifesto where we wanted to focus on our guests. For us, it is very important that our guest can stay easy, get more done and feel like at home. This is our manifesto:

Welcome to Forenom.

Long journey? Kick back and look around. What do you see? The kind of place that’s easy in every way.

Where you can cook your favourite meal. Go for a run in the neighbourhood. Watch an episode (or eight) of that TV show you like. Stretch your arms in the morning after a good night’s sleep.

We also look beyond the traditional, because there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to living. That’s why we never stop looking for new ways to serve you better.

We make your stay easy, so you can feel at home.

In the global tech world, the need to recruit IT experts from abroad to work for a project is becoming more and more common. IT workers are in such high demand that companies must come up with new, fast and cost-efficient ways to attract talent – and high-quality ways to ensure the workers can focus on their work instead of worrying about accommodation or other trivial things.

This article is a must-read for you if you answer YES to at least one of the following questions:

Are you someone who…

  • decides on / buys / uses / thinks about / dreams of accommodation in IT projects in your company?
  • would like to pay less for IT workers’ accommodation?
  • would like to spend less time finding accommodation for IT workers?
  • would enjoy a guaranteed comfortable stay in the accommodation for the workers?
  • would like to out-perform your competitors?
  • would like to execute more profitable IT projects?

Ticked at least one of the boxes? Then read on to find out how to improve your IT projects!

Forenom’s experts have worked with accommodating IT project workers for 17 years, so we know what to expect in IT projects and what kind of accommodation needs your workers will have – and most importantly, we know how to answer those needs. Follow these 6 tips in order to successfully accommodate your foreign IT project workers. 

 

1. Only pay for what you need

We know that IT workers usually work very intensely in the projects and put in long hours. They might leave early in the morning and return late in the evening. So, when you’re accommodating them, acknowledge that there’s a good chance they’ll never be able to take advantage of traditional hotel services, such as breakfast, laundry service or a gym. And do you think they will need daily room cleaning or want their sheets and towels replaced with new ones every single day? So why pay extra for something they don’t need? Choose a partner who will allow you to select exactly the services you want. Maybe get the apartment cleaned on a bi-weekly basis, and bed linens and towels changed once a week. You choose.

2. Beware of seasonal price changes

As you know, all accommodation providers have their peak seasons and their low seasons. So what if you suddenly need to accommodate IT project workers in the middle of a peak season? That’s going to cost you! But what if you had a partner who guaranteed fixed prices to you – no matter the season? It is difficult to find accommodation providers who agree to this type of deal but don’t accept accommodation contracts which allow them to raise prices during high season. This way you gain the most control over your accommodation costs.

3. Be open about your needs and negotiate

It’s important to give your accommodation provider as much information on the project as you can. Being open about your needs helps them to find the perfect option for you and you don’t end up having to pay for any surprise costs along the way. Choose a partner who allows you to negotiate on the price depending on the length of stay, to choose between various price ranges, and to include exactly the services your employees need. In order to get a binding agreement for accommodation, you will at least need to know how long your project will last, the number of employees staying, and the required location for accommodation. If you have employees with different positions and requirements, you may want to work with a provider which offers various quality categories. This way you can choose to save on junior employees’ accommodation and still meet the potentially high demands of the senior employees.

4. Choose a flexible option

Choose an accommodation partner which can arrange an apartment for the exact time frame necessary, even if it means starting in the middle of a month. Again, only pay for what you need. Cancellations should also be flexible. We know that IT projects rarely go 100% as planned, so sometimes you’ll want to extend or shorten your stays. Or maybe you started out with 20 employees but suddenly only 10 of them are needed in the project. For surprising events like this, make sure you have a flexible agreement, which allows you to cancel nights when needed. There are some corporate agreements which allow for full flexibility.

5. Address your IT workers’ needs

We know that most IT workers coming with a business visa seek accommodation similar to a hotel, with periodic cleaning, central location and easy check-in/check-out, and most of them want the possibility to prepare their own meals. Serviced apartments and aparthotels are perfect for just that: they offer hotel-like amenities, but with added space and comfort and equipped with their own kitchen facilities.

When it’s time for them to leave, make sure your workers are provided with easy check-out. A keycode access allows them to come and go as they please, so checking out is as easy as closing the door and stepping outside. Also check if a late check-out is possible, but if not, then make sure there’s a luggage room where they can leave their belongings if needed.

6. Make sure your workers are taken good care of

Last but definitely not least, make sure your workers’ stay goes smoothly from start to finish. Around 90% of IT project workers arrive during weekends. That’s why they need to be attended right there and then – not on Monday. Many IT workers come from far-away countries (~95% from India) and we know how baffled they sometimes are to arrive in the cold and dark Nordics. That’s why you should make sure that someone is there to attend them upon arrival. Your accommodation partner can ensure your employees arrive in their accommodation safely and comfortably, give them instructions about their new home and neighborhood and answer any questions your workers might have. After that, you want the accommodation provider to continue to be there for them, with 24/7 customer service.

 

Be sure you address all of the above points and you’ll make accommodating IT workers easy, affordable and efficient for you and comfortable for your valuable IT experts. Our Forenom accommodation experts are more than happy to answer any other questions you may have, so don’t hesitate to contact us!

Facts serviced apartments

Serviced apartments offer facilities much like a traditional hotel but with added space, convenience and privacy like home. They have private cooking facilities, larger living and sleeping areas than most standard hotel rooms and the possibility to add hotel services. Serviced apartment as an expression has been mostly used in the business travel market, but consumers are now getting more familiar with the option of homelike living due to the growth of sharing economy channels.

To give you the short answer, a serviced apartment is a fully furnished apartment, available for both short-term and long-term stays, providing amenities for daily use, housekeeping and a range of other services, all included within the rental price. Now, you might be thinking: “Sounds a lot like a hotel.” But nope, they are actually two very different things. So what exactly is the difference between a hotel and a serviced apartment?

Hotels and serviced apartments – comparing apples and oranges

Serviced apartments offer facilities much like a traditional hotel but with added space, convenience and privacy like home, so you can enjoy living like a local when travelling – and usually at a much lower cost.

Most online booking sites have long offered serviced apartments, but with no separate category – most are just labelled “apartment” and offered as another option alongside regular hotel rooms. The problem is, serviced apartments offer much more than just the physical dimensions of an apartment and shouldn’t be compared to traditional hotel rooms either.

But the term is slowly becoming more well-known also outside the business travel space, also because more and more leisure travellers are finding that serviced apartments are available and offer a credible and cost-effective alternative. They are especially economical for longer stays and for group and family travel.

Your home away from home

These days, especially business travellers are looking for alternative accommodation solutions when away from home in order to have a more comfortable stay. If you are a business professional who is continuously living out of a suitcase and staying in traditional hotel rooms, you will appreciate the features of a serviced apartment. They allow for space, privacy and comfort in your own surrounding and the freedom to do exactly the same things you would do at home:

Prepare your own meals in your kitchen, finish up work in the living room, throw your sports clothes in the washing machine after a run, then kick back and watch Netflix in your bedroom.

Forenom Serviced Apartment bathroom

The advantages of a serviced apartment compared to traditional hotels in a nutshell:

  • A serviced apartment is more of a home, with utilities that enable more freedom and comfort.

  • A serviced apartment typically has more square meters than a traditional hotel room. We have room for your sports equipment!

  • A serviced apartment is substantially cheaper than a hotel room when staying for a longer period of time. Both because of the actual cost of the apartment compared to a hotel room, but also because of the possibility to cook for yourself and not having to eat out on every meal.

  • A serviced apartment resembles the culture of the specific area. It gives insight into what a real local apartment would look like, giving a more comprehensive immersion of the culture and values compared to hotel rooms, which usually all look alike.

Forenom Serviced Apartment Room for your belongings

In Forenom Serviced Apartments you will get:

  • Central location or very good connections to public transportation
  • Self-contained apartments normally within a residential building

Why you as a customer should select serviced apartment over the hotels in Stockholm

Three Things Travelling People Value the Most

Nordic region’s leading corporate housing provider Forenom completes fifth acquisition within 12 months by acquiring StayAt HotelApart AB in Sweden. The transaction supports Forenom’s strategy to expand to be Northern Europe’s strongest corporate housing provider.

Forenom has concluded an agreement to purchase the entire business of StayAt, with four aparthotels and one serviced apartments location in Stockholm, Malmö and Lund. The deal contains altogether 700 accommodation units including StayAt’s upcoming aparthotel in Malmö. The transaction strengthens Forenom’s position as the Nordic market leader in business accommodation and will further fuel the growth in Sweden.

– StayAt is the leading chain of aparthotels in Sweden with great guest satisfaction and strong customer relationships. We are extremely happy about StayAt joining us in building the widest and most flexible accommodation offering in the Nordic countries, says Forenom CEO Johannes Kangas.

– We are excited to join the Forenom family and to continue growing our product. Together we will be able to better serve our clients and provide the best possible service. I look forward to the many opportunities that lay ahead, adds StayAt CEO Daniel Stendahl.

 

Alternatives to traditional hotels continue to disrupt the industry

Both Forenom and StayAt are specialized in providing alternatives to traditional hotel accommodation by offering serviced and hotel apartments for business customers in e.g. consultancy and research-intensive industries. In addition, Forenom has a strong foothold in accommodating project workers in the manufacturing and construction industries.

Project-based way of working increases companies’ need for extended stays. At the same time, the housing shortage in Sweden creates a high demand for serviced and hotel apartments, especially in Stockholm and the region of Skåne. Both companies provide solutions for extended-stay business customers who want freedom of choice and the ability to live a normal life and socialize while travelling.

– We have a strong feeling that the traditional accommodation world is changing. Together with StayAt, we are confident we will attract the next generation of business travellers who understand the benefits of home-like living combined with a warm community and reasonable pricing, says Forenom’s Head of Sweden, Mats-Erik Lidström.

Last year Forenom became the market leader in Norway through the acquisition of the serviced apartment company Oslo Apartments. Forenom strengthened its portfolio also in Finland with several serviced apartment and aparthotel operators. In addition to the acquisitions, Forenom seeks organic growth through the recently opened new offices in Bergen, Malmö and Gothenburg.

The acquisition will be effective starting March 1st, 2018 after which StayAt properties will be branded as Forenom. During year 2018, Forenom’s aparthotel chain will consist of 17 aparthotels in major Nordic cities.

Forenom’s goal is to continue growing rapidly and become the leading accommodation service provider in Northern Europe. The asset management company CapMan made a significant investment in Forenom in 2016, which is expected to accelerate Forenom’s growth and development opportunities internationally.

StayAt is the leading Swedish brand within hotel apartments, operating four properties in Bromma, Kista and Lund, with 600 apartments and 100 more to be opened in Malmö. The company primarily caters to Swedish and international experts working for high profiled companies within consultancy and education intense businesses, with both extended and shorter stay lodging.

The Nordic regions’ leading corporate housing provider Forenom opens 90 new high quality, extended-stay apartments for business travellers in Oslo. Forenom believes that the new concept supports Oslo as a destination which attracts international companies to set up or expand their business in Norway.

The main goal is to create peace and quality for business travellers

The new extended-stay concept opened on January 24th, with 90 apartments located on Kongens gate 9, Oslo. This concept has been established to serve international professionals with longer stays greater than three months.  Forenom believes that new apartments are suited to business travellers and workers staying in the city for a few months during their work project, or before settling as a permanent resident.

‘’We are willing to play an important role in building the city center’s attractiveness for international professionals. Our new location in Oslo is a place where companies’ employees can easily settle and enjoy their professional and private life with all the facilities needed’’, says Forenom CEO Johannes Kangas.

‘’We believe that professional business travellers are not only in need of high quality home-like living but also affordable pricing.  For this reason, we have created exceptional pricing.  For example, in this new extended-stay location one-bedroom apartment pricing starts from less than 15 000 NOK/month including everything, even taxes’’, says Kangas.

Forenom is a professionally run accommodation company with tested processes and 24/7 customer service.
