STC Signs Pact with SAP
SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) announced Wednesday that it has signed an agreement with STC, a telecommunication services provider in the Middle East and North Africa, to implement SAP solutions for network life-cycle management (NLM) to improve network operations.
This will enable the company to improve customer service as a result of increased end-to-end visibility for capital projects and assets, as well as enhanced project oversight and collaboration.
SAP’s NLM solutions will also maintain the high quality of STC’s IT infrastructure.
“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 realizing tasks — from demand and supply planning to investment and project management, inventory management and asset accounting,” said Dr. Khalid bin Hussain Al-Bayari, senior VP for Technology and Operations, STC.
SAP solutions will offer STC visibility into equipment and assets, including multifaceted historical details at every step of the life cycle.
According to SAP, the solutions are particularly effective in both reducing and optimizing costs related to build and repair, as well as helping increase the productivity of field workers.
