The Egyptian National Postal Organization (ENPO) and SAP have signed an agreement to establish a RISE with SAP Private Cloud, in addition to modernizing software applications and introducing best global practices of postal services.
The contract was signed by Dr. Sherif Farouk, Chairman of ENPO, and Sergio Maccotta, Senior Vice President and General Manager, SAP Middle East South.
Dr. Farouk said: “This protocol is the culmination of the continuous cooperation and strategic relationship between Egypt Post and SAP and is part of our ongoing efforts to implement the best technology solutions throughout all our services and transactions using advanced software solutions and integrated digital services to facilitate and secure internal and external transactions”.
Dr. Farouk also highlighted that the agreement, which is the first of its kind in the Middle East and Southern Europe region, aims to establish a local cloud center and to enhance existing applications to leverage new features and technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. The solution can integrate seamlessly with existing non-SAP and financial applications.
The agreement will also provide a holistic view of ENPO performance and key indicators, and enable ENPO to study, analyze and develop current business cycles in a practical way, and to inform agile decision-making. In addition, some steps in standard processes can be automated to reduce human error and interaction, which in turn improves efficiency and reduces cost of ownership.
