UK-based Organization Streamlines Document and Contact Management across Different Departments with MatterSphere

LOS ANGELES, Jul. 9, 2014 – Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal business of Thomson Reuters, today announced that EEF has selected MatterSphere, the matter management component of Elite’s Client & Matter Management offerings. EEF is an employers’ organisation that helps thousands of manufacturers across the UK evolve and compete in a fast-changing world, decided to streamline its legal workflow, document management, and contact management with MatterSphere. Client & Matter Management is an integral segment of Elite’s enterprise business management solution (EBMS), a comprehensive suite designed to help clients manage every aspect of their businesses.

In need of a centralized matter, document, and contact management solution to manage all aspects of its legal workflows, EEF selected MatterSphere to boost efficiencies company-wide. EEF’s legal work is mainly comprised of employment law for manufacturing firms, yet it recognized how MatterSphere’s functionality could be extended to other departments including human resources, health and safety, and training consultancy areas.

“Because of the wide ranging scope of MatterSphere across both legal and nonlegal departments, it is crucial that the solution is able to be precisely built to meet our organization’s comprehensive needs,” said Dean Gardner, business services director at EEF. “Not only are we confident in Elite’s ability to reliably provide Client & Matter Management, we’ve also invested in its services team, trusting the proficient group of individuals to complete the strategy stage of Elite’s PQM process according to our vision and the project timelines we’ve established.”

“We are thrilled to introduce Client & Matter Management into this sector, and I am confident that the benefits EEF will gain from MatterSphere also serve as a testament to other similar organizations,” said Elisabet Hardy, vice president of Product Management for Elite. ”Although MatterSphere has received much recognition as a revolutionary tool to transform matter management operations for law firms, the strong, enterprise-class solution is more than capable of providing businesses in other industries with its comprehensive functionality.”

Elite is a leading global provider of an end-to-end enterprise business management solution that allows law firms and professional services organizations to run all operational aspects of their firms, including business development, risk management, client and matter management, and financial management.
