In a fiercely-competitive marketplace, service innovation doesn’t have to come at a price

New app boosts courier productivity and customer satisfaction


Online purchasing sets high consumer expectations. And express delivery plays a vital role in meeting them. So Emanuele Sibilia, chief technology officer, imagined a paperless, high-speed company. Delivering value-added customer services, operational efficiencies would offset the investment.

BT Advise professional services helped Emanuele design an innovative driver app and equip the company’s mobile workforce with state-of-the-art handsets. Now, GPS localisation means customers can see where their parcels are in real time. Packages arrive with pinpoint accuracy. Couriers are more productive, while back office costs have reduced. Customer satisfaction is soaring and Sogetras can keep prices low to fend-off the competition.


BannerBT Advise acted as an end-to-end technology consultancy. That greatly helped me to rapidly deploy the best solution for our mobile workforce.”
- Emanuele Sibilia, Chief Technology Officer, Sogetras S.p.A.
