Hewitt Associates partners with Aquila on pensions administration

Consultancy Hewitt Associates has partnered with Aquila, the European pensions administration software provider, to implement its administrator system across Europe. 

The two companies will work together to move the first UK clients onto the system by the end of 2010.

Derek Morgan, European benefits outsourcing lead at Hewitt Associates, said the partnership will allow the company to offer an even higher quality service for pension scheme members and will allow much more capacity for coping with peaks at work.

He added: “Adopting this approach has considerably increased the quality of service we offer our administration clients, as well as lowering costs for them. Using administrator is the next step in this process and will support a significant push forward in terms of levels of quality, automation and efficiency.”
