Cyprus Post moves toward automation

Cypriot Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos has announced a €2.25 million investment programme in automating Cyprus Post’s systems.

Alongside Deputy Minister for Research, Innovation and Digital Policy Kyriakos Kokkinos, Karousos announced the money is to go into automating counter services for the public as well as integrating systems to systems to record sales, inventories, customers’ orders and statistics.

After the automation process has been launched, postal services personnel are to focus on customer service.

“This is a flagship project for Cyprus,” Karousos said. “It will completely revolutionise the postal services’ operations and will help reduce the level of bureaucracy that burdened the administration and its customers alike.

“It is not an exaggeration to call the project as leap towards the future

Kokkinos added that the Cyprus Post upgrade is part of a broader effort by the government to accelerate the transition to digital services in Cyprus.

“Digital transition is considered to be the core of a new development model for our country, which will ensure the viability and competitiveness of the Cypriot economy.

“The upgrade to the postal service will help improve our citizens’ lives with a new and better product,” he concluded.
