Digital Strategy The new Payments, Mobile and Digital business area is set to become a competency centre to help steer the roll-out of our digital strategy, aimed at providing innovative products and services to meet the new needs of customers.

For Poste Italiane, innovation and digitisation represent the beating heart for the promotion of change and the key tool to accompany its customers in the process of digital transformation.

In a complex and challenging scenario, the Group’s strategic evolution requires leveraging the development of innovation and the enhancement of technological assets to ensure both the capitalisation of what has already been achieved and the development of innovative solutions, as a support and source for business evolution. Over the years, Poste Italiane has shown its ability to transform its operational structures and services by adapting to market needs in constant evolution, through continuous investments in technology and know-how.

Poste therefore intends to better manage the needs of its customers, through strategic investments in physical and digital infrastructures, all in line with the Deliver 2022 Strategic Plan. The Plan has, in fact, innovation as its main pillar, requiring a profound transformation of the business and therefore of the company’s IT systems and processes to support the achievement of its objectives.
