Latest Version of 3E Helps Firms Boost Productivity by Streamlining Financial Processes

LOS ANGELES, Jun. 19, 2014 – Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal business of Thomson Reuters, today announced the launch of 3E 2.7.2 with key enhancements designed to help clients increase productivity, improve data quality, and optimize financial performance. 3E is an integral component of Elite’s enterprise business management solution (EBMS), built to help firms manage all operational aspects of their businesses.

“With 3E 2.7.2, superior financial management is achieved with several new upgrades strategically designed to balance processes and provide more client control,” said Elisabet Hardy, vice president of Product Management at Elite. “For firms upgrading to 3E, especially those transitioning from Enterprise, the process has never been easier than with 3E 2.7.2. Its advanced implementation capabilities ensure rapid system migration and adoption.”

New background processing of billing steps allows 3E 2.7.2 clients to produce higher throughput, moving from one task to the next immediately while background processes are still running. System posting performance enhancements save valuable time by allowing clients to transact faster, which is especially critical during high peak hours. Moreover, additional business process alerts automatically notify management and others about key process statuses and tasks that require their attention. Also, compliance and controls are enhanced through new permission-based rules on who can create payments or receipts for bank accounts.

The newest version of 3E helps firms that currently use Elite’s Enterprise system and are ready to move to 3E. 3E 2.7.2 helps these firms by accelerating the transition with user setups driven by Active Directory integration and automated sync processing. Enhanced integration with document management solutions expedites implementation and ongoing maintenance with faster data load processing and simplified data level security setups.

3E offers powerful core financial and practice management features and built-in application development capabilities – all seamlessly integrated into one high-performance system. Designed from the ground up on Microsoft.NET, 3E provides an integrated development environment that enables firms to become more agile in responding to client needs. A full suite of capabilities is delivered through a consistent Web-based user experience that allows staff to easily track and manage activity on a multi-office, global scale.
