Thomson Reuters Brings Advanced Matter Management to the United States Marketplace with MatterSphere
U.S. law firms can now experience innovative matter-centric platform from the iPad or smart phone
Los Angeles, Jan. 30, 2012 –Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced that MatterSphere is now available to law firms in the U.S. market as part of the company’s Elite suite of integrated management solutions. MatterSphere is an industry-leading matter management platform, and incorporates MatterCentre within its structure.
MatterSphere integrates with Elite 3E, Elite Enterprise and many other financial management and document management platforms, and is embedded in the Microsoft Office environment to unite operations and promote collaboration across the enterprise and with a firm’s clients.
“MatterSphere has an impressive client base in EMEA and Asia Pacific (APAC) because of its revolutionary approach to matter management. It is a more natural and intuitive way for lawyers to practice law since it lives within familiar applications like Microsoft Office,” said Cary Burch, chief operating officer of Elite. “We plan on replicating its success in the U.S. market through continued innovation to simplify everyday activities.”
Nabarro LLP is a major UK commercial law firm that deployed MatterSphere to accomplish multiple efficiency objectives. According to Director of IT Andrew Powell, “MatterSphere removes time-consuming and routine administration delays. It is flexible enough to cope with the unique aspects of our work, yet still supports management supervision. And it allows us to realize more billable hours from our lawyers, while reducing the service costs of supporting them.”
Kingsley Napley LLP leveraged its investment in MatterSphere by enabling direct access to key files by clients. “One benefit MatterSphere is that it not only provides a window into our case management systems, but is sufficiently flexible to offer us complete creative control as to the case and contact details, documentation, milestones, reports and other data we wish to expose to our clients,” said IT Software Development Manager Laura Brown at Kingsley Napley.
