The Pensions Dashboards Programme (PDP) has announced three commercial dashboard providers to work with it during the initial testing phase.

In addition to the Money and Pensions Service's (Maps) non-commercial dashboard, PDP said it would work with Aviva, Bud and Moneyhub to support its early work on design standards and technology.

The PDP said these three providers represented a range of different types of organisation that it are likely to be seen in the future dashboard provider market - and include an insurer, an open banking platform and an open data fintech.

It said the ambition behind working with this range of providers is to ensure the PDP understands their needs and the onboarding processes works for potential dashboard providers.

The alpha test phase runs for six months from December 2021 and PDP will help its chosen dashboard providers prepare to connect their dashboards to the central digital architecture.

The chosen dashboard providers will help refine the onboarding process, as well as taking part in end-to-end testing of the system, which will help improve its functionality.

PDP head of product Raman Dhaliwal said: "We are delighted that we received such a positive response from organisations intending to supply pensions dashboards. We look forward to working closely with Aviva, Bud and Moneyhub, as well as the Maps dashboard team, as we move into our alpha testing phase.

"We will work with them to develop and refine the standards and systems for pensions dashboards, so that we can provide a dashboard service that benefits consumers."
