Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, today announced that existing client Spilman Thomas & Battle, PLLC, has decided to transition to 3E®. The 3E deployment will enable the full-service firm to replace its Enterprise™ system and six other solutions it currently relies on to manage workflows, reports, collections, and more. 3E is an integral component of the Elite Enterprise Business Management Solution, an end-to-end system built to help firms manage all operational aspects of the business.

“At Spilman, we make it a priority to maintain high-performing systems that allow us to provide excellent service at optimal value for our clients. After a thorough evaluation, we determined that the single 3E solution offers superior functionality for both financial and practice management,” said Spilman’s Managing Member Michael J. Basile. “We look forward to simplifying our technology infrastructure with a solution that can be tailored to meet our exact needs.”

Spilman has selected 3E to modernize operations with simplified data integrations and a centralized data repository. Comprehensive and secure reporting capabilities are designed to help the firm better measure performance and ultimately improve client service through enhanced efficiencies. The firm’s lawyers gain constant access to intuitive reporting functionality that incorporates real-time data and enables them to drill down to the details they value most.
