Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal business of Thomson Reuters, has announced that Shine Lawyers has become the latest firm to go live with 3E®. The firm is also now utilizing a number of additional offerings from the 3E Enterprise Business Management Solution, including 3E MatterSphere®, 3E Workspace, and Xcelerate Budgeting and Forecasting, as well as partner solution Cosine Matter Planning.
Shine Lawyers, with more than 40 offices and 400 lawyers, originally chose 3E in 2017 after a competitive review process. As the leading next-generation end-to-end financial management solution, 3E provides robust workflow and automation capabilities and a scalable foundation built to help firms manage all operational aspects of their business.
In addition to 3E, the firm has adopted 3E MatterSphere (formerly MatterSphere), a robust client and matter management system that provides a single way to view and manage activities. To address the firm’s need for transparency with its clients and guarantee round-the-clock access to their matters, Shine has also implemented the MatterSphere Client Portal. The utilization of 3E Workspace as well has increased firm mobility through a single interface for Shine’s lawyers to perform important daily tasks in 3E and 3E MatterSphere on any device, anywhere.
Shine will also take advantage of Xcelerate Budgeting and Forecasting—powered by Elite partner OLAP Vision—which promises to unlock real-time insights into the firm’s revenue and expense budgets, forecasts, and other key targets. It is the only Microsoft® Excel®- and web-based budgeting and forecasting application built specifically for legal and professional services. Finally, the implementation of partner offering Cosine Matter Planning is helping to maximize the capabilities of the 3E platform through more accurate resourcing, pricing, and profitability of matters.
