Comprehensive Functionality Enables Established Australian Firm to Improve Processes and Increase Efficiency 

LOS ANGELES, July 8, 2013 – Thomson Reuters Elite today announced that leading mid-tier law firm Bartier Perry has rolled out Envision as its complete matter and financial management system. Bartier Perry, based in Sydney, Australia, selected Envision to execute its long term strategy of providing top-tier service with lower overheads.

“Envision minimises the time needed to perform a number of our administrative tasks, freeing us to focus on delivering greater outcomes for our clients,” said Bartier Perry Chief Executive Officer Luke Stevens. “We are also able to make more informed decisions through the availability of real-time data, which is something we were not able to do before.”

Envision, formerly known as LawSoft, is one of the most comprehensive business tools available for law firms and includes practice, financial, matter, case, document, and client relationship management capabilities. It was one of the earliest solutions built from the ground up to use Microsoft SQL Server as its underlying database engine. Envision was also the first UK law firm solution to be built on an integrated workflow engine to support complete process management.

“Bartier Perry, like many of our Australian clients, needed a fully integrated solution to provide a single source of data,” said Cary Burch, president of Elite. “We’ve understood that the mid-market firm segment in the Asia Pacific region has been underserved by current providers in addressing the challenges firms face. Because Envision is a single all-inclusive solution for business development, case and matter management, risk management, as well as financial management, it is exactly what Bartier Perry needs to run smoothly and profitably.”
