Michael Whitfield, chief executive of Thomsons Online Benefits says: “Since our inception we have pioneered XML integration as a way to remove unnecessary paper, cost and data errors from employee benefits administration. Next year, with pressures on employers to reduce costs and improve efficiency, this will be a real help to many employers out there. Also, with the advent of auto-enrolment under NPSS this continued and significant investment in our technology will pay even more dividends for those lucky enough to use it.”
Thomsons Online Benefits is launching a new XML pension joining process with both Axa and Scottish Widows, available exclusively through its Perquisite software. Thomsons already has XML links to Aegon Scottish Equitable, Friends Provident, Standard Life and Scottish Life.
