Allen & Overy were keen to engage with Apogee Digital Document Services (DDS) to support their strategic objective of adopting digital workflow technologies to the firm’s document processes. They were particularly keen to reduce office space and consequently move towards a paperless office that fully incorporated digital workflow.
Apogee worked closely with the Document Services Team in the development of an on-site/off-site operational model whereby essential work with a quick turnaround remained on-site and all other work was outsourced to Apogee DDS at the two London sites. New equipment was also invested in to improve workflows on-site and Apogee DDS were again the supplier of choice.
The solution infrastructure comprised of two key elements: litigation support services and digital workflow. This staged transition allowed the legal firm to support cultural challenges across its workforce.
Apogee has helped the firm to push forward with its plan to digitise documents. As nearly all information is either created or communicated electronically, having a focal point to ensure that best practices are adhered to and efficiencies are maximised, is essential. This allows the firm to best administer its current requirements and plan its future ones, utilising new technologies, processes and procedures.
