Watching Evolution of 3E Leads Australian Firm to Choose its Automation and Workflow Solution and Mobile Capabilities

Jul. 16, 2015

Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, today announced that Cooper Grace Ward, a leading Australian firm, has chosen to replace its Enterprise™ system with 3E® to support the firm as it grows into the future. Located in Brisbane and comprised of 220 team members, Cooper Grace Ward specializes in commercial legal services, focusing particularly in the areas of corporate and commercial, property, litigation, insurance, and family law, within Australia and internationally. 3E is an integral component of the Elite Enterprise Business Management Solution, with robust workflow and automation capabilities and a scalable foundation built to help firms manage all operational aspects of their businesses.

Cooper Grace Ward was one of the first law firms in Australia to implement Elite’s Enterprise system. Miz Brmbota, the Manager of IT and Knowledge commented, “We have been in a good position to watch 3E evolve over the years which has given us a deep understanding of the capabilities of the product and how it could benefit the firm over and above the current level of functionality provided by Enterprise”.

Along with 3E next generation technology and workflow and collaboration capabilities which provide a powerful capacity for automation, the firm chose Design Gallery, a rich document automation solution that manages the collection, reorganization, conversion, and distribution of data within 3E. With the extensive range of out-of-the-box functionality, common set of services, and highly flexible foundation provided by 3E, the firm decided that 3E and Design Gallery make an incredibly valuable workspace product. In addition, Cooper Grace Ward was especially interested in the mobile capabilities available with 3E and the Elite enterprise business management solution.

Miz Brmbota also commented, “Our firm has a strong focus on business process automation and with the strong emphasis on workflow and process automation in the legal market, we identified that 3E and Design Gallery was the best platform to enable the automation of work flows across the firm.“

“We are pleased that Cooper Grace Ward, a firm known for outstanding client service, selected 3E. With the firm’s experience with Enterprise and the Elite tradition of being a leading legal industry solution, the transition to 3E was a natural choice,” said Elisabet Hardy, Vice President of Product Management at Elite.

“By choosing 3E, a core component of the Elite Enterprise Business Management Solution, Cooper Grace Ward can take advantage of its robust financial management platform which can be fully designed to work the way the firm works. And with the 3E built-in automation capabilities, enhanced by the Design Gallery functionality, Cooper Grace Ward can look forward to becoming more efficient and mobile, which supports their philosophy of providing excellent customer services and a supportive work culture.”
