Why Serco Trusts Swift360 to Innovate New Products & Rationalise Their Product Range
Serco is a FTSE top 250 public services company managing over 500 contracts worldwide. Employing over 50,000 people, Serco carry out business internationally across the UK & Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
Serco operate in five sectors:
- Justice and Immigration
- Citizen Services
Swift360 have been working alongside Serco to supply their Environmental Services team.
In the search for reduced costs but higher quality products, Serco came to Swift360 for help.
To achieve the level of product rationalisation Serco sought, our RPD team designed and developed a new product from the ground up. Our high visibility 4-in-1 waterproof breathable coat, alongside a high visibility bodywarmer, replaced the 4 different types of outerwear Serco were previously using.
Swift360 developed a new 4-in-1 breathable coat which means we no longer have to buy 2 or 3 garments. The introduction of new safety footwear has delivered excellent value for our budget and comfort for the wearers. We are a very diverse business and I have recommended my colleagues in other divisions to give them a try.Procurement Manager, Local Government and IT, Serco
