Induction Attend Anywhere wins DWP contract
Induction Attend Anywhere to provide video conferencing to virtualise parts of the UK benefits system
Induction (AIM: INHC), a leading virtual care platform driving digital transformation of healthcare systems worldwide, announces that a two-year contract has been awarded by the Department of Work and Pensions (“DWP”) to Induction’s partner Involve Visual Collaboration Limited (“Involve”), a UK video specialist, to provide communications services to support the virtualisation of the UK benefits system. The contract includes options for the DWP to extend the agreement term for up to a further two years.
As part of this significant contract, Induction will supply DWP with its web-based video consultation platform, Induction Attend Anywhere, allowing members of the public to hold a video consultation with DWP assessors in relation to their financial support needs as an alternative to a face-to-face meeting.
The contract value to Involve is up to £3.95m for the initial two years, totalling up to £7.79m for the full four years. The contract value to Induction is up to £2.6m for the initial two years, based on usage, totalling up to a maximum of £5.2m for the full four years, assuming the contract is extended for the additional two years. There will be a small contribution of around £150K to the Group’s revenue in the current financial year.
This is Induction’s first major contract outside of the healthcare sector, underlining the expansion potential for Induction Attend Anywhere and other Induction systems.
Induction Attend Anywhere will be used by DWP as part of its Strategic Digital Video Project to virtualise key business units within the department. It will be used to connect with claimants and will allow DWP the option to manage its assessments virtually as well as providing recording capabilities across all departments including Personal Independent Payments, Universal Credit, Industrial Industries Disablement Benefit, Employment & Support Allowance, Fraud and other key business units.
