STC signs deal for SAP network solutions
Barcelona, Spain, February 26, 2014
Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has signed up SAP, a global leader in business software, to implement solutions for network life-cycle management (NLM) to improve its network operations.
The solution will improve STC’s customer service as a result of increased end-to-end visibility for capital projects and assets, as well as enhanced project oversight and collaboration, said a statement.
Dr Khalid bin Hussain Al-Bayari, senior vice president for technology and operations, STC, said: “With SAP solutions, we can create close links between the logistical and financial sides of our network operations, integrating the entire spectrum of planning and realising tasks — from demand and supply planning to investment and project management, inventory management and asset accounting.”
“Enabling effective collaboration within and beyond the company will help optimise the way we manage the network infrastructure, streamlining and innovating for better-run, more cost-effective operations and investments.”
SAP solutions will offer STC visibility into equipment and assets, including multifaceted historical details at every step of the life cycle. The solutions are particularly influential in both reducing and optimising costs related to build and repair, as well as helping increase the productivity of field workers. - TradeArabia News Service
