Capita Workplace Technology becomes Right Digital Solutions Limited

We have great pleasure in announcing that from 1 August 2020, Capita Workplace Technology will now be known as Right Digital Solutions Limited (RDS).

This change marks a major milestone for the business as it divests from Capita PLC back into private ownership and looks to increase its impact on the ever-evolving digital workplace technology market.

The buyout is backed by the original founder Paul Gillett who set the business up in 1988 and grew it into a Managed Print Services market leader before its acquisition by Capita in 2011. Paul returns to the board as Chairman alongside the original FD, Nick Jones to further support the existing management team.

Paul commented

“Over the last 9 years Capita did a great job of providing significant infrastructure and scale for the business. However, as changes in the digital workplace accelerate, our clients need a more flexible and entrepreneurial approach to maximising staff productivity, managing their data and driving down costs. We believe our nationwide reach, proven service track record and wider digital services offerings coupled with a more focused and agile approach will prove to be a winner for our clients.”
