Digital Fuel, the leader in software solutions for Service Level Agreement (SLA) Management and Service Cost Management, today announced that its SLA Management solution has been selected by SITA to improve the utilization of supplier management resources and increase the productivity of customer and supplier services. SITA, the world’s leading service provider of IT business solutions and communications services to the air transport industry (ATI), expects to enhance customer service and supplier management workflows across the organization.
More Than a Platform for SLA Management Needs
“Digital Fuel collaborated with our team to deliver more than a platform to meet our existing SLA management needs,” said Francis Venant, Head of Supplier Service Management, SITA. “In addition to meeting our current need for a solution to help improve the level of service we can offer our customers today, Digital Fuel provided a platform that can support major business requirements such as regular performance reporting, proactive analysis of performance shortfalls, and productizing standard SLAs. As our business grows, Digital Fuel’s SLA Management solution will improve the visibility and traceability of product and service performance from both our customers and suppliers with a single standard platform.
Improving Service Level Management through Workstreams
Powered by Digital Fuel, the SITA SLA Management program aims to improve multiple facets of customer services levels and supplier management through a number of project initiatives called workstreams. These workstreams include:
- Supplier/Prospects Data Management, Selection & Evaluation and Collaboration
- Supplier Services and SLA Management
- Customer Services and SLA Management
- Supplier Contract Management
The initial phase of SITA’s SLA Management project includes the deployment of a platform solution to meet the business requirements of enhanced Customer and Supplier Services and SLA Management workstream.
“As an industry-leader in managing complex communications solutions for the air transport industry, the efficient and effective management of service level agreements across customers and suppliers is critical for SITA’s business,” said Yisrael Dancziger, CEO of Digital Fuel. “We are pleased that SITA has chosen to partner with us to maximize the value of its supplier management resources.”
Digital Fuel’s ServiceFlowTM SLA Management solution is expected to positively impact a number of SITA business areas, along with a number of existing systems and processes already in place. The initial phase of SITA’s SLA Management project provides the platform for SITA to successfully manage SLAs with its customers and suppliers. The project scope includes establishing a baseline against which to evaluate existing service levels of managed supplier products and services and provide standardized fully packaged SLA offerings with SLA templates, service levels targets and performance reporting for SITA customers.
