Envision Practice Management Solution Expands Globally with Launch in Hong Kong

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8, 2014 – Thomson Reuters Elite today announced that Envision has penetrated new territory in the Asia-Pacific region with independent, mid-sized law firm Howse Williams Bowers. After a successful deployment, the Hong Kong-based firm becomes the first-ever client in China to go live on the Envision practice management solution.

Prior to establishing Howse Williams Bowers, its partners had used the Enterprise application suite from Thomson Reuters Elite at their previous firm and sought a solution that could not only deliver the same level of functionality, but also be better scaled to meet mid-market needs. After a comprehensive evaluation, the firm’s decision makers determined Envision to be the optimal solution to provide the firm with the competitive advantage it needs as it continues to grow. Another unique benefit to the firm is that Envision allows for additional functionality, such as document management and marketing, to be added after the initial implementation.

“Our previous experience with Thomson Reuters Elite built our confidence in the Envision team and assured us they would have the knowledge and skills to deliver exactly what we needed,” said Kien Ng, chief financial officer of Howse Williams Bowers. “We are very pleased to be an early adopter of Envision in Hong Kong, which we feel will support our growth plans and provide a competitive advantage.”

“We are thrilled to have successfully completed the first Envision implementation in China, and we are confident that Howse Williams Bowers will become a prime example for other mid-market firms in this region in need of a single all-inclusive business solution to manage their entire practices,” said Colin Kennedy, chief operating officer of Thomson Reuters Elite Mid-Markets. “We look forward to many more successful implementations to come in this segment of the APAC community.”

Envision is one of the most comprehensive business tools available for law firms and includes practice, financial, matter, case, document, and client relationship management solutions. For more information, contact your sales representative or visit Envision.
