Box-it East Wins Birketts LLP Contract

Box-it East Wins Birketts LLP Contract

Box-it East, the Risby based specialist in document management has recently been awarded the Birketts LLP storage and retrieval contract for the next 3 years, totalling an estimated 30,000 archive boxes.

“These are exciting times for Box-it East,” said newly appointed Managing Director, Claire Brooks.  “Having taken the lead in January, I couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the year.  We’re presently a team of eight, full time staff and with the additional business we have secured we’re looking to recruit more employees and increase our warehouse capacity.”

Birketts LLP, recognised as one of the top UK law firms will become one of Box-it East’s biggest and most prestigious clients standing alongside a number of county councils and the NHS. The firm has a rich heritage spanning over 150 years having regional offices in Ipswich, Norwich, Cambridge and Chelmsford, providing clear legal advice.  Birketts have built an enviable track record advising business, institutions and individuals in the UK and internationally. 

Chris Simmons, IT Director of Birketts commented, “We undertook a complete review of our records management system and identified a number of areas for improvement in preparation for relocating to our new head office premises in Ipswich.

“One fundamental requirement was the ability for a supplier to collect and deliver individual files as well as complete boxes or box sets, to and from any of our four offices on a next day, before 12am service.

“Claire Brooks  understood the needs of our records team, visiting each office and discussing the storage nuances of Deeds, Wills, Probate and other files types, and then put together a customised system to meet our needs."
