Computershare acquires Kidsunlimited voucher business

Computershare Voucher Services (CVS) has acquired Kidsunlimited’s childcare voucher business from Bright Horizons, which had purchased it in April 2013.

It has also formed a strategic partnership with Bright Horizons, which will build on the two organisations’ common goals and childcare expertise.

The partnership will see CVS and Bright Horizons work closely together to provide childcare voucher services to working parents and organisations across the UK.

Naz Sarkar (pictured), chief executive officer of Computershare UK, said: “Over the past five years we’ve invested significantly in our vouchers business, strengthening its operational core, further increasing our customer service abilities, and expanding the products and services available to our 13,500 [employer] clients.

“The acquisition of the Kidsunlimited business and the strategic partnership with Bright Horizons are logical steps, and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to bring new benefits to all our [employer] clients while maintaining and improving service levels.”
