Burges Salmon collaborates with Affinity Water to launch a Digital Compliance Tool 

Burges Salmon’s Innovation team has developed a Digital Compliance Tool in collaboration with Affinity Water, to support the company’s objective of ensuring compliance across the business.

Affinity Water is a UK supplier of drinking water to 3.8 million people in parts of London, East and Southeast England. Under the requirements of the various regulators that control the water industry, companies including Affinity Water must demonstrate compliance in a verifiable way.

Needing to illustrate to regulators that effective processes are in place and are being employed, Affinity Water was challenged with improving the task of compliance reporting.  The Burges Salmon Innovation team worked together with Affinity Water to understand the issues, the current approach, and to develop a creative solution designed to support their compliance cycles.

The solution is designed to grow with the client and increasing regulation, enabling constant evolution. We look forward to continuing this collaboration with Affinity.”

Simon Wooderson, Head of Ethics, Compliance & Data Privacy at Affinity Water, adds:

“Burges Salmon’s Innovation team definitely had an intuitive understanding of what we were looking for, and they were able to bring solutions to us even before we challenged them to do that. There’s been a true collaboration between Affinity Water and Burges Salmon, and their team has responded very well to the challenges we’ve thrown at them.”
