PSA Peugeot Citroen has introduced an online pensioner payslip service to reduce the costs and environmental impact of its scheme communications.
The service was developed by Shilling Communication and will issue 150,000 payslips a year, which pensioner members can view online or print.
The website allows the UK PSA administration team to upload pensioner data monthly which will be used to generate the payslips and segment content within the rest of the site so that pensioners only see information that is relevant to them.
Peugeot Citroen pensions operations manager Oliver Polson said the site had low running costs and the capacity to add additional functions in future.
Shilling communication consultant Steve Sykes said many schemes were looking for ways to manage their communications spending more efficiently while maintaining service levels.
He added that the PSA system would deliver a return on investment in less than one year and safeguard against increases in postage prices now Ofcom has lifted the cap on the price of stamps.
"Following the recent increase in postage costs in the UK, we are likely to see more and more schemes take advantage of online communication methods such as this to reduce their costs," he said.
Defined benefit (DB) schemes that provide GMPs must revisit and, where necessary, top-up historic cash equivalent transfer values (CETVs) that have been calculated on an unequal basis, a landmark court judgment said last week.
Technology platform PensionSync has partnered with quantum employment pioneer My Digital to help contractors and employers manage pensions as more workers do temporary work for multiple firms.
Capita Pensions has partnered with data technology solutions firm Intellica to tackle the GMP equalisation challenges facing pension schemes.
The Hewlett Packard Retirement Benefit Plan has reappointed EQ Paymaster as its third-party administrator (TPA) for five years.
