Capita launches ESN Device as a Service

The transition to the new Emergency Services Network will require experience, flexibility, knowledge and manpower. With its national network of service centres and experience as the UK’s leading service provider for the emergency services Capita is ideally positioned to bring a ‘critical mass’ of personnel and experience to support all the services in their transition. Capita believes that ‘one size won’t fit all’ and is launching a truly device-agnostic, flexible service to provide the most cost effective and beneficial solution to all ESN customers, individually, regionally or even nationally.

To find out more on the service please download the paper here or come and have a chat with us at the B-APCO event, 21st & 22nd March, at the Telford International Centre.
