The London Borough of Bexley has extended its contract with Capita plc (Capita) to include transactional finance services.
Following the expansion, Capita now manages accounts payable and receivable services for the Council, these teams process payments to customers and suppliers.
The six-year deal, worth £2.96m, commenced on November 1, 2021 and builds on the board’s long-term revenue and financial assessment contract with Capita.
Capita secured the extension to transform service to Bexley residents and invest in improving the experience for customers and suppliers who use it.
The transformation will include rolling out their state-of-the-art document scanning and invoice reconciliation capability which they successfully use today in a number of local authorities they support.
Capita’s transformation could save the board up to £1million over the life of the arrangement.
Paul Abraham, Managing Director and Client Partner of Capita Local Public Service said;
“We are delighted to support our partner in this new area. By modernizing the service with this technology, we will help improve the customer experience by further speeding up the processing and processing of payments to customers and suppliers – which has always been important, but never more so as businesses emerge and recover from the pandemic.”
Addition of Councilor David Leaf, Deputy Leader of the London Borough of Bexley and Cabinet Member for Resources;
“Capita is one of our long-standing and trusted partners and we are happy to work with them to improve services to our residents, reduce costs and increase productivity.”
