Auto Enrolment Assessment Tool

For many employers, the greatest difficulty faced with auto-enrolment is not the payment of contributions, it’s the admin associated with it. Although an excellent facility for ensuring that many individuals save for their retirement, the multi-faceted process for staying on top of all auto-enrolment duties often presents a challenge.

Introducing OCALC.

We created OCALC to be a simple, fast way to ensure your continued compliance with all your auto-enrolment requirements. We used the knowledge and experience acquired from running our previous auto-enrolment platform, Root, and combined it with newer, more intuitive technology, creating a slicker, more comprehensive tool, ready to take on all of your auto-enrolment needs.

From working in the auto-enrolment market since its inception in 2012, OPTESS understand the needs and concerns of employers better than most. OCALC has been designed by OPTESS with employers in mind, helping them to get the job done, quickly and easily.

Our Message to You

Times are changing.

Your responsibilities are changing.

What it means to be an employer is changing, constantly.

We know you know this already, but have you ever actually stopped to think about how many responsibilities you have as an employer, besides the usual operating of your business? How much you have to do, just to stay on top of your duties?

In an ever-developing society, the list of responsibilities for a business continues to grow. As an employer, your duty is not only to pay your staff, but to protect them, take care of them and treat them fairly. We know how important it is to keep up with these duties, but we also know how hard it can be for you to balance these responsibilities with the ongoing running of their business. With business dynamics constantly in a state of flux, we know that the pressures of running a business can be huge.

As you know, we’ve been supporting you with your auto-enrolment for some time. But we wanted to go further. We’ve been hearing about your needs. After all, to talk about one employer responsibility is to talk about all of them and since we made ‘Supporting Employers’ our goal, we knew we needed to do more.

You’ve been talking…

                …so we’ve been listening.

We are very proud to announce


At OPTESS, our goal will be to provide you with all the tools you need to fulfil your employer responsibilities, leaving you to get on with the important stuff – running your business.

Now don’t worry, we’ll still be continuing with all our auto-enrolment support. Auto-enrolment is, and will always be, a key part of what we do (we hope you saw our recent communication about the updates we’re currently making to Root).  In addition to this, we will be providing you with a raft of new services, all designed to help you with the ongoing running of your business. These services are designed around your feedback, everything you’ve told us about the frustrations of being an employer in the UK. Over the next few months, we’ll be updating you on our new services, so stay tuned for more news.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have given us. It is only through your feedback and support that our new venture has been made possible. We hope to receive your continued support and that you will be as excited by our new services as we are. If you have any immediate questions or concerns, please let us know on 0203 633 6229 or [email protected].  

We’ll be in touch again soon.

Kind Regards,
