LONDON, April 11, 2023 – Capco, the global technology and management consultancy, and fintech Origo have partnered to ensure pension providers are well-positioned to connect to the central digital architecture that underpins the UK’s Pensions Dashboard initiative. When the Dashboard launches later this year, it will provide UK savers with a consolidated ‘one-touch’ view of their pensions information, including their state pension.
The new partnership brings together the benefits of Capco’s audit and readiness solutions and its expertise in project management with the advanced capabilities of the Origo Dashboard Connector. Together, Capco and Origo will help pension providers to effectively meet their Dashboard obligations, while delivering a pensions dashboard experience that offers enhanced data readiness and connectivity.
When an individual submits a dashboard request for their pension details, the Origo Dashboard Connector automatically checks, matches and returns the relevant data held by providers. It also addresses and resolves any issues that arise when only partial matches are initially returned. To facilitate this, Capco will ensure that the necessary data across providers’ books of business, administration platforms and operational systems is successfully sourced, gathered and readied for sharing.
Roland Inglis, Partner & Head of Scotland at Capco, said: “We are pleased to draw upon Capco’s long heritage of innovation, data expertise and digital transformation to support the pensions industry. When pensions dashboards go live, there will be millions of requests for pensions data. Through this partnership, we can ensure that pension providers have access to a robust, comprehensive and scalable solution to handle their processing requirements in a secure a fully compliant fashion, ahead of the deadline to connect to the central architecture.”
Anthony Rafferty, CEO at Origo, said: “Origo is building the central digital architecture for the Dashboard, and we have a separate team that has designed and developed the Origo Dashboard Connector to give providers a straightforward and cost-effective way to connect to that architecture.
“Providers and schemes will receive multiple fields of data from the Dashboard and will match it with their records. However, where there is a partial match, for example where the forename, surname and date of birth match but the address provided is different, providers need a robust process in place to help deal with it.
“Working with Capco, we can deliver an additional dimension for users of the Origo Dashboard Connector, enabling providers to better prepare their data ahead of their connection deadline.”
