25 April 2006 #SMMT News

SMMT will today sign contracts with Capita IT Services to develop a new Motor Vehicle Registration Information System (MVRIS).

SMMT has worked with Capita IT services since 1995 and the new contract has been awarded following a two year procurement process. It is worth £11.7 million over a five and a half year period.

Under the terms of the new contract, Capita will design, build and deploy the new system as well as manage it for a minimum of five years.

Since 1995, SMMT has worked with Capita on the support and development of the SMMT’s core vehicle data systems as well as hosting and the provision of data capture services. The contract has been extended twice and this current extension will take the contract into its fourth term.

Chris Welfare, MVRIS manager at SMMT said, ‘SMMT has become the primary source of authoritative and impartial vehicle data and information. The extension of our relationship with Capita allows us to focus on significantly developing and enhancing the service to our members.’

Shaun King, director of client services at Capita said, ‘We are delighted that our work with SMMT has been extended. We are looking forward to building upon an already successful relationship, continuing to support SMMT to deliver a high quality service to its members. The new MVRIS system will not only provide improved performance and functionality but also establish a new scalable platform allowing future expansion of MVRIS and the introduction of new applications.’
