Under Lot 1 RM3785 Managed Print and Digital Solutions agreement, we transferred the Department for Work and Pensions’ print services from the incumbent.

 

Create

With our project and account management teams, our in-house IT team worked closely with DWP on a number of technical service enhancements.

  • Back office integration with DWP’s catalogue ordering system
  • Development of an online ordering system for uploading documents to be converted into alternative formats (braille, large print, audio) and for ordering personalised material.
  • Creation of a digital asset management portal for product and brand assets – cleansing and hosting over 7,431 product assets.

We’ve also transferred operations for the Compensation Recovery Unit, printing an average of 359,000 prints per months (4.31 million a year).

 

Deliver

As part of the overall implementation we’ll be providing DWP and the public purse with multi million pound cost savings. We’ve also:

  • Uplifted 279 pallets of stock, on-boarded 25 suppliers and 6 design agencies
  • Opened a new office in Leeds
  • Established a new customer services team
  • Achieved the target ‘go live’ date of 1st December 2017
  • TUPE transfer of 16 colleagues
  • Processed 4,621 order lines in first 2 months
"APS Group delivered a seamless transition of long standing complex print arrangements for DWP. Working collaboratively with multiple internal stakeholders, while adopting and rationalising a diverse supply chain, they were able to implement new print arrangements within an extremely challenging timeline and without any impact on service continuity – absolutely key in delivering a successful outcome for DWP."
