Mitie announces forensics crime fighting strategic partnership

Analysis of metalMitie, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company, has today announced a strategic partnership with SmartWater Technology, the crime fighting forensic specialists.

In the first partnership of its kind within the security sector, the enterprise will see Mitie’s total security management business and SmartWater work together across a number of different business areas to reduce clients’ risk against data theft.

Mitie will add SmartWater’s services and products to its mobile and void property security offerings including its key holding and alarm response services. Mitie personnel will also undergo training to create an elite team of specialist forensic technicians within its mobile and technology services teams.

This addition will make Mitie’s offering unique to the market and provide additional support to new and existing customers.

SmartWater has been proven to be the most powerful crime deterrent in the UK through its ongoing partnerships with police services. Its forensic products are used strategically to maximise the traceability of assets and the accountability of criminals. The use of SmartWater had aided hundreds of criminal convictions and maintains a 100% conviction rate.

Darren Gamage, managing director of technology services, total security management, said:

“Part of our investment in innovation is forming high value strategic partnerships with new and effective product and service providers such as SmartWater. The potential of introducing SmartWater into our customer base is huge. This is a pivotal opportunity for our key holding customers to better protect their estate and infrastructure.”

Phil Cleary, Chief Executive of SmartWater Technology Ltd, said:

“We believe that enhancing the skills of Mitie Security Officers to use SmartWater and deliver the deterrence strategy that we have created, adds real value to Mitie’s offering. This will ultimately be of benefit to their clients and we are confident that our proven success will encourage more to come on board.”
