In 2008, SFR started a major transformation project on its mobile IT system. Following on from this project, SFR has chosen to outsource to Steria its entire mobile IT system, with the aim of improving its operational performance and at the same time optimising costs.
This contract, for a term of 4 years and worth almost ¤ 100 million, involves Steria taking on the overall management of the IT production of this operator, covering all the front office applications (sales and subscriptions, CRM tools, marketing, invoicing...) and back office (administrative and financial applications, SAP, network applications, corporate tools...).
The tailor-made production model delivered by Steria will enable SFR to take advantage of the industrial capacities of the European service company, while maintaining a high operational proximity. Steria's global delivery resources will be closely coordinated with the teams on site. This organisation, to which will be added a mirror governance team between Steria and SFR, is proof of the commitment of both parties in this partnership. The common aim is to transform and rationalise the IT system.
"Signing such an important contract with a company like SFR confirms Steria's capacity to assist such large clients in a transformation project, and demonstrates the relevance of our strategic direction. Our integrated production model brings high added value for our clients in terms of reliability, efficiency, service quality and price attractiveness," declares Oliver Vallet, CEO of Steria France.
Steria's in-depth knowledge of the specific aspects of the IT production, in particular in the field of telecommunications, means it can commit itself to improving the operational performance and achieve significant productivity gains to the benefit of the operator.
"We chose Steria for its ability to assist and speed up our transformation, while making considerable commitments for an entire area and in a standardised manner. This should enable us to increase our agility in managing our IT system and make real economies of scale, which are vital for our future investments. This partnership is a major asset to support our continued innovation policy for the benefit of our clients and thereby improve our attractiveness in an ever more competitive market," states Emmanuel Erba, Purchasing Director for IT Systems and Services of SFR.
