Many organisations are now looking to new technologies to achieve competitive advantage.

Using new forms of information provided by sensors, deep analytical tools, Digital Process Automation (DPA) and workflow re-engineering, technology can provide actionable business information to drive future strategy and the transport organisation’s business direction.

What our customers say

MAG

Everything we do relies on IT, even more so now than it did in the past. We are spending £1 billion at Manchester Airport on processes and terminal facilities all of which have IT as a backbone. We worked with SCC to do both a top down and a bottom up assessment and we looked at every part of our IT infrastructure to make sure that it would be fit for the future.
SCC have put forward their A team to work with us. They’ve been professional, they’ve been credible, they’ve been very capable and they’ve helped our team along with their methodology, so it’s now our strategy – SCC delivered us outcomes not outputs, and I think that bodes really well for the future.

Our relationship with SCC has expanded rapidly in the two years since our initial engagement. Their provision of government approved and pre-certified cloud solutions enabled us to rapidly fulfil the stringent security requirements of our government contracts. SCC then augmented this with a wide range of additional services including connectivity to over 200 sites, managed print services, a new phone system and an extensive break-fix contract. The breadth and depth of their services enable us to consolidate so many of our requirements with one highly respected and trusted IT provider.

Our key Travel and Transport solutions

As a major processor of information, travel, transport and logistics organisations are challenged to maintain a single source of truth that records product and process information held securely in one place. At the same time, they must meet increased regulations around the secure storage of data, and so need to understand the data they hold and where it is stored.

Our range of Document Services equip organisations with innovative digital document management solutions that support more integrated, agile ways of working.

Managed Print Rooms
These specialist resources and operatives help organisations move away from paper-based processes and workflows, towards digital transformation strategies that help messages be conveyed more effectively.

Managed Post Room
Our digital post rooms and processes minimise the processing time of inbound and outbound mail, while improving its quality at the same time. These managed services help support the adopting of quicker, more agile and more efficient working practices organisation-wide.

Secure Scanning Services
Secure record scanning services, smart digital working methods and highly skilled resources can be deployed to reduce overall print volumes and improve accessibility to important data.

The benefits

  • Streamline workflows and processes
  • Create a single, integrated view of data
  • Rationalise property assets
  • Support sustainability agendas
  • Increase information accessibility, including historic documentation
  • Enhance protection and security of sensitive data

Amid the uncertainty of Brexit and COVID-19, organisations need to identify new ways of driving efficiency into their processes, not only to protect the resilience and availability of the services they offer, but also to drive ongoing cost savings and meet rising customer expectations.

SCC provides two key services to support the transformation of organisations across the sector. The first is Oworx, a subsidiary business to SCC that provides a complete suite of cloud enablement services. The second key service is Managed Colocation, a secure and flexible arrangement where organisations can host their own infrastructure and hardware in SCC’s accredited data centres.

Travel, transport and logistics organisations are constantly striving to remain competitive by identifying new customer markets or service offerings, and by reducing their cost base, including within the management of their IT estate.

SCC offers flexible options to ensure our customers always have the right devices, at the right time, with security, viability and sustainability always in focus:

Device as a Service (DVaaS)

Travel, transport and logistics organisations are constantly seeking to cut costs so their limited budgets can be focused on core services and project delivery. However, they require a complex estate of software vendors to operate effectively and managing that estate can be time-consuming and expensive. SCC’s Software Asset Lifecycle Management service involves working with organisations to evaluate their technology and licensing contracts, assessing software usage and identifying any issues and commercial risks. Providing insight into their software estates puts organisations back in control and highlights areas of rationalisation to provide savings, while ensuring compliance with both vendors and legal regulations. To ensure our customers can achieve optimum value from their software estates, we deliver clear management reports and recommendations for improving efficiency and mitigating risk. We can also provide best-in-class tools to monitor and track usage effectively, ensuring compliance with vendor licensing requirements, where non-compliance carries significant fines and reputational risk.

The benefits

  • Encourage new ways of interacting with other departments, partners and supply chain companies
  • Gain complete visibility and control of the software estate
  • Predict software spend accurately
  • Enable collaboration and cost certainty with a common multi-agency software platform
  • Increase compliance and licence optimisation
  • Reduce costs through SCC’s buying power and licence optimisation

With cyber threats and attacks on the rise, businesses in this sector must take a proactive approach to finding and resolving vulnerabilities. Achieving this is critical to minimising any risk to customer data, the business’s financial standing or its reputation.

Detect

Respond
We provide incident response services and remediation tasks, so that customers can prepare for security breaches, minimise their impact, and take their protection and risk management to the next level.

The benefits

  • Protect the reputation and productivity of the organisation
  • Secure valuable confidential information, software and networks
  • Cut the cost of security monitoring, risk assurance and in-house skills
  • Enable a proactive approach to cyber security
  • Tailor a service to the maturity of a particular security strategy
  • Support ongoing compliance strategies

The UK is facing a nationwide digital skills shortage, as technology innovations drive the requirement for more and more digital expertise. However, many commercial organisations may not be able to take advantage of innovations such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Robotic Process Automation, due to an inability to attract and retain the resources required.

Transformation Solutions
Design and deployment of transformation programmes, strategies, roadmaps and target operating models, with experience in the challenges of moving complex workloads to the Cloud.
