The Switching Programme aims to unlock innovation, create more competitive pressure and improve service and cost outcomes for consumers

Landmark Information Group has been awarded a contract by Smart DCC to design, build and operate the registration elements of the Central Switching Programme, which is an Ofgem-led transformation programme that will support faster switching between energy suppliers for consumers.

The Switching Programme aims to unlock innovation, create more competitive pressure and improve service and cost outcomes for consumers. The goal is to achieve capability for next-working-day switching for gas and electricity.

Coherent and accurate addressing is an essential element of the programme. Landmark’s solution will utilise Ordnance Survey’s AddressBase® Premium product set and specialist services from Aligned Assets Limited.

Chris Brackley, Managing Director – Landmark Solutions, Landmark Information Group said: “Ofgem launched the faster Switching Programme to deliver reliable, next day energy switching for consumers via a new Centralised Switching Service (CSS). Smart DCC is the key delivery partner and we are delighted to have been selected to support them in successfully implementing the CSS, utilising our extensive expertise and knowledge in managed service solutions, addressing and Ordnance Survey data.”

Richard Hilton, Switching Programme Director at Smart DCC, said: “The signing of this contract is another step in delivering next day switching for consumers through a new Centralised Switching Service (CSS). The changes will facilitate market competition, realise significant efficiency benefits for energy suppliers and, most importantly, encourage savings for consumers.

As part of DMGT plc, Landmark Solutions delivers a number of managed services to public sector and private organisations.
