For Poste Italiane, innovation and digitalisation are two central drivers of strategic progress and enable it to guarantee its customers innovative technological solutions, also through the integration of its own products and services with those of third parties. Through these drivers, the Company not only guarantees the accessibility and efficiency of its offer to all citizens, but also promotes the connection with the Public Administration and the Italian entrepreneurial world, setting itself as a reference point on the path towards innovation and digitalisation of the country.

Poste Italiane contributes to the creation of value for society, through continuous technological evolution, capable of influencing the reduction of environmental impacts and promoting social inclusion, through products and services accessible to all customers. 

In particular, in 2023, the Group worked to strengthen the digital sales channel by expanding the available functions, extending the range of products and services that can be purchased directly through the Group's digital properties (Group’s websites and APPs), optimising the PosteBusiness infrastructure, and investing across the board in cloud-driven technology infrastructure, data-driven companies and advanced AI-supported assistance. 

The constant commitment to the search for innovative digital solutions and the ability to integrate new business models has enabled the Group to achieve important results for the development of its business and for the creation, through the review of its products and services, of shared value for society and the country. The Group has implemented a programme of "digital transformation" of all its service and offer models in order to guarantee its customers full digital contact experiences. This programme, which was significantly accelerated in 2021, in view of the effects of the health emergency, made the Group's products available to customers in conditions of absolute safety.

In 2023, collaboration continued between Poste Italiane and a number of institutions (Compass Banca, Deutsche Bank Findomestic Banca and Santander Consumer Bank) for the disbursement and placement of the BancoPosta loan, in all its distinct options, including those for home and car renovation. 
 

The omnichannel strategy

The Group's omnichannel strategy is aimed at creating an "ecosystem" and multichannel platform model which, thanks to cutting-edge physical and digital channels and simplified processes to serve its customers, aims to guarantee an excellent customer experience on all points of contact, through the proprietary physical network, the digital infrastructure and remote contact points and the physical network of third parties.

The omnichannel strategy has transformed Poste Italiane into a Platform Company, already resilient to the pandemic and the financial upheavals produced by the war in Ukraine, and prepared to manage any new critical issues arising from the current context. In the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company achieved a 9.4% year-on-year increase in operating profit, reaching at 2.62 billion a level more than double that of 2017.

Important initiatives such as the Polis project, SPID, the launch of fibre connection services and the entry into the energy market show how Poste Italiane is a facilitator of the country's technological transformation.    

Poste Italiane considers human capital a resource of central importance for innovation. For this reason, in addition to continuing its policy of open innovation and inorganic growth with the acquisition or majority shareholding in some of the most innovative companies and start-ups, it also continues its "reshoring" policy, hiring young resources, emigrated abroad. In this way, the company contributes to the digitalisation and modernisation of the country and combines the virtualisation of services with a constant and qualified presence on the territory.

During 2023, Poste Italiane achieved important results in terms of development and value creation for the country and the community, and thanks to its constant commitment to the search for cutting-edge digital solutions and the integration of new business models, it was able to revisit its range of products and services and on opening further communication channels with its customers.
