Shares of Checkit PLC (LON: CKT) soared over 7% today after the company confirmed it agreed a 3-year contract with John Lewis Partnership.

The provider of workflow management software solutions will work to help John Lewis with connected workflow, asset monitoring and building management solutions in the next three years.

“Checkit UK Limited has worked with the John Lewis Partnership since 1993 and we are delighted to be continuing and developing that relationship going forward, with digital innovation at the heart of our new agreement.”

The agreement has been focused on the deployment of Checkit's CWM platform, which automates manual processes and replaces paper and documents with digital process tools.

The deal comes just a week after John Lewis announced a deal to sell 60%-70% of its products online in the next five years.
