As more cities look at innovative ways to reduce toxicity levels, Amdocs partners with Capita to deploy digital business systems for world’s largest ULEZ

ST. LOUIS, May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies, today revealed that it has extended its partnership with Capita Business Services, a leading provider of technology enabled business services, to deliver significant elements of the technology, testing and professional services that supported the rollout of Transport for London’s new Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) regulations and standards, which launched on April 8th 2019. The ULEZ replaces the existing emissions surcharge (the ‘T-charge’), so that vehicles travelling in central London will now have to meet new, tighter emissions standards, or pay a daily charge.

Ian Roberts, Commercial Director at Capita Business Services, said that “We have been working with Amdocs supporting Transport for London’s congestion charging and low emissions initiatives for a number of years; Amdocs’ technology and delivery pedigree made them an ideal fit for a project of this scale and importance. Transport for London’s new ULEZ systems and business processes are a major step towards London’s aims of becoming a zero-carbon city.”

Amdocs worked alongside Capita to provide key digital business systems and automation technology to enable Transport for London to charge highly polluting vehicles for entering specific zones within the city, encouraging the use of cleaner cars, improving the UK capital’s air quality, and creating the world’s largest ULEZ.

Gary Miles, chief marketing officer, at Amdocs, said that “In highly populated urban areas, vehicle pollution is a serious health issue. The ability to leverage technology to implement and enforce new rules and regulations will be key to addressing this. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside Capita on this ambitious and significant project for Transport for London, in an expansion on our first major deployment in the transport sector.”
