Faced with a savings target of £500,000 per year on their housing service costs, East Riding of Yorkshire Council approached Capita for support in improving its operational efficiency.

With 100 operatives carrying out 300 repair jobs per day, East Riding's partnership with Capita focused on agile and mobile working being introduced across its repairs teams, alongside improved scheduling for work undertaken.
