3E Business Development users gain an additional option for service from a trusted technology partner

Dec. 12, 2019

Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal Professionals division of Thomson Reuters, today announced an expansion of its partnership agreement with Wilson Allen, provider of consulting services and software that enable professional services firms to enhance business performance. Under this agreement, Wilson Allen will serve as the preferred partner to Elite for technical, data quality, and consulting services related to 3E Business Development (formerly Business Development Premier), part of the 3E Enterprise Business Management Solution, as well as legacy business development solution BDS.

Elite announced to clients in January 2019 that it would no longer offer 3E Business Development to new customers and that the software would be in maintenance mode through 2026. By partnering with Wilson Allen, Elite is able to offer 3E Business Development users with an additional option for service while the software is in maintenance mode. Wilson Allen will work closely with the Elite support and consulting teams and will have access to training documentation as part of this agreement.

“We are committed to minimizing any disruption for current users of 3E Business Development as they plan for the future, and our partnership with Wilson Allen supports that effort,” said Patrick Hurley, Global Services and Customer Advocacy at Thomson Reuters Elite. “Wilson is a trusted services provider of Elite software services with expertise across a broad range of disciplines. We feel confident in appointing them to supplement our services team.”

“Wilson Allen has enjoyed a long-term partnership with Elite and has worked closely with its services team for many years,” said Bruce Wilson, CEO and managing partner, Wilson Allen. “Extending this relationship to include 3E Business Development is a natural fit, particularly with the addition of CRM experts to our team resulting from our merger with Stanton Allen in 2018. Elite customers can be assured that we’ll provide expert-level services to assist in the maintenance of their existing software but also as they make plans to transition to new business development software.”
