Mitie’s Document Management business has won a new five-year contract with law firm Addleshaw Goddard. The contract will cover five of the client’s major sites, including London, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Mitie will be digitising all aspects of the firm’s document management services, including reprographics, mailroom and records management.

This will underpin the firm’s ability to transform unstructured data, such as hard copy documents, to business intelligence. Through integrating the four essential elements of people, technology, customer and process under one contract, the client’s employees will also be able to more effectively access and manage their information to improve efficiency.
