Mitie‘s Document Management business – itself part of Mitie’s security management business, the UK’s intelligence and tech-led security company – has been awarded a five-year document management and logistics services contract with The Law Society following a competitive tender process. This is the first time the professional body has outsourced these services, which were previously delivered in-house.
Mitie has been appointed to transform service provision by digitally enabling the provision of Mail Room management, porterage, reprographics, scanning, records management and purchasing services. These services will be delivered using a fully-integrated solution aligned to The Law Society’s WorkSmart project, which is focused on modernisation by bringing people, processes and technology together.
James Gilding, managing director of Mitie’s Document Management business, said: “We’re delighted such an iconic professional association as The Law Society has entrusted Mitie with this first-generation outsourcing contract. We look forward to developing a long-term partnership which enables The Law Society to focus on its member’s needs while trusting in Mitie’s expertise and innovative technology to deliver on all document management requirements.”
Tom Booton, head of corporate real estate for The Law Society, responded: “The Society conducted a very detailed and competitive tender involving leading specialists from the document management sector. Mitie offered a great level of expertise and technology and really understood our needs which set the business apart. We look forward to welcoming them as a supply chain partner at The Law Society.”
