- Partnership provides document digitisation and process automation
- Already delivering 30% savings for live customers
Mitie’s document management business has partnered with technology solutions provider, Stratas, to launch end-to-end document and business process automation in a multi-million pound deal.
The Stratas team has been successfully providing automation and digital transformation for more than 15 years. Combined with Mitie’s 20 years’ experience in providing document management workflows and services to clients, the new partnership will provide a premium-class full service offer.
Stratas and Mitie will work together to review customers’ existing processes and then implement programmes to optimise efficiencies. Mitie has a processing centre in Birmingham which provides services such as hybrid mail, digital mail, invoice processing and scanning and will provide the workflow and delivery of services.
With a focus on simplifying the often complex and overwhelming process for businesses wishing to become a digital enterprise, Mitie and Stratas believe this to be the next generation of document and information management.
One of the UK’s largest property management companies is already realising the benefits of the partnership. After appointing Mitie and Stratas to manage their two million mail items earlier this month, they have made immediate savings of around 30% on the cost of sending a mail item.
In addition to cost savings, the partnership boasts other benefits to businesses, including:
- Solutions for SMEs which are scalable and flexible, growing alongside the needs of a business
- A simple, cost effective entry point for starting a digital transformation
- An end-to-end solution for large scale organisations who are already en route to becoming a digital enterprise
- Experience delivering small and large scale to both public and private sector clients
James Gilding, Managing Director of Mitie’s document management business, said:
“We recognise that automation is about more than ticking the digitisation box. Increasingly, employees and customers want companies to be digital. In turn, the business will benefit because their people will be able to focus on high-value tasks as the essential day-to-day operations become automated.”
David Wilson, Managing Director of Stratas, said:
“Paper still has a place in a digital enterprise, but it needs to be controlled and automated, reducing costs and risks whilst creating information assets that deliver business value. We were keen to work with Mitie due to their track record of delivering quality document and data management services, and the partnership has gone from strength to strength, elevating our respective value propositions in the market.”
