Bates Wells Braithwaite appoints Managed 24/7 to oversee £1.5m digital transformation

Having joined Bates Wells Braithwaite (BWB) as IT director in May 2016, former Birketts business systems director Chris Simmons has led a move to engage Managed 24/7 in a five-year, £1.5m project to design and implement a full digital transformation of its IT infrastructure.
Managed 24/7 is working with BWB to install an entirely new IT platform plus put in place long-term monitoring using Managed 24/7’s predictive intelligence based software.
Simmons said: “BWB has been growing steadily for the past decade and, most recently, we have been looking into how we can continue this success over the next decade. With this in mind, we have appointed Managed 24/7 as the partner who will help build the IT architecture we need to achieve this aim. 
“Throughout the procurement process it became clear to us that they possessed the necessary expertise, as well as the required wide-ranging knowledge of the legal sector –making them, all in all, the ideal partner.
“As we look to the future, we believe that Managed 24/7’s predictive service will help power the platform we need to deliver what BWB does best – providing excellent and responsive service.”
