TIM on Tuesday announced that it has signed a cost saving procurement deal with main players in the Italian telecoms infrastructure sector.

The agreement is part of the procurement optimisation project set out in the DigiTIM Strategic Plan presented last March and is expected to result in cost savings as well as efficiencies in the planning and implementation of various orders for the development of the fibre network in Italy.

DigiTIM Strategy Plan focuses on the automation and digitisation of production processes that are already being implemented across TIM’s platforms and that will also be undertaken by suppliers.

The service contract, with a variable duration of between 3 and 5 years starting from 2019, has been signed with Sirti, Sielte, Ceit, Sittel, Valtellina, Site; it includes both the maintenance and construction of part of the fibre and copper network and the delivery of the service to the end client.

Over the coming weeks, TIM said it will also initiate discussions to establish a common system agreement with other second-tier suppliers as well.

Amos Genish, CEO, TIM
With this agreement, the shared path undertaken with our main suppliers will allow TIM and other players in the sector to identify the best industrial strategy for the short and long term.
