Capita leads the pack in Police supplier rankings

A recently published TechMarket View report has reported that Capita 'leads the UK Police SITS supplier market by quite some margin'. The UK Police Sector SITS: Supplier Landscape and Market Trends 2014-15 report considers the state of the Police and Justice market and outlines how the market environment may change over the next few years. The report notes that the Police market is challenging, 'highly fragmented with little standardisation between forces' but is 'on the cusp of change' as Forces realise they need to transform their organisations and processes rather than invest in single point solutions.

The report also reveals the Top 10 suppliers and reviews their performance and prospects. It states that Capita has gone from 'zero to hero' over the last 5 years through a mixture of judicious acquisitions as well as winning and retaining key contracts. TechMarketView notes that Capita's breadth of offering in the sector is unique and covers the spectrum of Police operations. Capita now has a footprint in 100% of UK Police forces offering a number of specialist and proven solutions including ControlWorks, Origin, extensive Mobile technology and managed services, IdentityWorks as well as its new PoliceWorks solution. TechMarketView believes that Capita also has additional capabilities to interest the Police including its 'game science' functionality, which is currently used in the Fire Service to simulate major incidents.

Sean Massey, Divisional Managing Director said:

"We are delighted by this acknowledgement of our staff and customer's hard work and commitment to the Police and Justice sector. The findings of this report illustrate to our strengths as a transformational and innovative partner to the Police community. We look forward to continuing to invest time and resources to support the Police and wider Emergency Services community in the coming weeks and months."
