Capita Employee Solutions (CES) offer employers employee solutions to end clients including pension administration, pension consultancy, data tracing, employee benefits and HR services. They outsource the printing of over 4 million packs to Capita Intelligent Communications, but still retained in house print and mailroom functions. Due to GDPR compliance and internal costs CES were considering outsourcing their internal printing, however when the UK was hit with the COVID-19 pandemic resulting in governmental guidelines restricting staff from working onsite at offices throughout the UK, this had a severe impact on CES as there was a continued requirement to post correspondence to pension scheme members whilst maintaining legislative SLA’s. We supported CES by introducing our Hybrid Mail solution and enabling remote teams to continue sending consistently branded customer communications.
In April 2014, Capita Intelligent Communications was asked to take on the key customer communication requirements for ten Local Authorities.

Due to a committed team and highly effective project management, the project successfully went ‘live’ at the beginning of October 2014. Today, we continue to work with even more Local Authorities and have helped deliver the increasing number of their customer communications in the channel of their choice.
