Atos Origin, a leading international IT services company, today announces that it has signed a two-year agreement worth €8 million with P Italiane S.p.A. Under the terms of the contract, Atos Origin will provide total support to the Italian Post Company to optimize its SAP-based IT system.

Poste Italiane was looking for a partner to support it in the optimisation of its IT requirements, in line with the Group's strategic objectives and the specificities of its processes and procedures.

In addition to Poste Italiane S.p.A companies, the program has also been developed at companies controlled and managed financially and administratively by Poste Italiane, in order to optimise SAP application management and data management at the corporate level and also in the regions.
