Heywood Pension Technologies is pleased to announce a new digital development partnership with leading digital technology company, Kainos.
Our primary objective is to work with Kainos to provide a new and transformational member experience, bringing a consumer-focused design to pensions, as we have seen happen in online banking, retail and other aspects of our digital lives.
Heywood Pension Technologies and Kainos have conducted in-depth research with members across a variety of different pension schemes, and this has given us a much clearer insight into the future needs and wants of pension scheme members.
"This is just the start of the journey. We believe that our partnership with Kainos creates a unique blend of expertise"
We will empower members to plan early by delivering a holistic view of financial wellbeing. Through analytics and insight we will learn from members’ actions, and be able to personalize communications, making a complex subject simple through the use of plain language and storytelling, and making it accessible for everyone.
We will provide intuitive tools to help members understand and manage their pensions more effectively. A compelling online experience will encourage greater member engagement, allow a higher degree of self-service and reduce administration effort, and improve communication between members and their pension scheme.
We share Heywood Pension Technologies’ drive to make the best use of today’s best technologies to create positive, transformational change
Andy Ross, CEO of Heywood Pension Technologies said “Combining our deep expertise in pensions technology with Kainos’ proven track record of delivering transformational change through digital technology, this new partnership will help to accelerate our journey to becoming the leading provider of data-driven, technology-enabled solutions for all Workplace Pensions. Kainos’ experience in enhancing end-user experience will be invaluable in helping us to achieve this, as will their experience in the use of Public Cloud infrastructure and technologies.
“This is just the start of the journey. We believe that our partnership with Kainos creates a unique blend of expertise that will enable us to create market-leading solutions that take advantage of the latest digital technologies and help to transform delivery and support of all Workplace Pensions.”
Russell Sloan, Digital Services Director at Kainos said: “Our goal at Kainos is to combine the expertise of our people with our many years of experience in digital technology to make people’s lives better. We share Heywood Pension Technologies’ drive to make the best use of today’s best technologies to create positive, transformational change, and we look forward to developing our partnership to support Heywood in achieving their ambitious goals within Workplace Pensions.”
