It focuses on centralisation in order to make its capabilities available to subsidiaries in a more efficient manner. The company says the Altice model, or ‘Altice Way’, includes a number of areas of expertise.
Among them are improving network quality, upgarding and building out very high speed communications networks; improving customer relationships; leveraging Altice’s international media and content oreganisation; offering customers the best content; developing R&D through Altice Labs; developing, launching and integrating new products, services and business models; leveraging branding and marketing synergies; and selecting strategic suppliers and developing centralised procurement.
Significantly, Altice intends to insource some technical and customer care capabilities by taking control of Parilis and Intelcia. It also plans to launch both Altice Studios, to create original movies and series, and Altice Channel Factory, to create more new channels.
