3E Automation Accelerator enables speedy Elite 3E updates for global law firm

Project Summary

Software quality assurance within information technology is a quickly growing service within the client, a global law firm with more than 56 offices around the world. With the goal of expanding on the continuity of quality and maximising value to the firm, it required a single global delivery partner to establish a Testing Center of Excellence and deliver test automation of its Elite 3E upgrades, among other projects.

Inspired Testing prides itself on its specialisation in legal software testing, specifically in the Thomson Reuters Elite 3E environment. Its in-depth knowledge and expertise made it an easy choice for the client. The Elite 3E Automation Accelerator allowed the client to upgrade its current implementation of 3E with confidence and speed. With its key product areas including Client and Matter, Financial Management, Work to Cash and more, and its 160+ pre-built automation test suites, the Automation Accelerator delivered tremendous value. The client entered a monthly Enterprise retainer structure to continue making use of Inspired Testing’s expertise as Elite 3E rolls out new releases.

Inspired Testing’s depth of knowledge allowed the client to enter into a single-vendor agreement to meet all its software quality assurance requirements, including functional, integration, automation and performance testing as well as practice management and change control audit.

Client Overview

The client is one of the largest legal firms in the world, with more than 2, 500 lawyers on six continents providing practical legal solutions to corporations, financial institutions, and governments.

Problem statement

The client was faced with a growing Quality Assurance aspect within its expanding information technology service, which covers a range of technologies including Thomson Reuters Elite 3E, which requires regular updates to continue delivering a smooth experience to its users. Manual regression testing is not feasible at such a large scale, and a test automation solution was sought.


Inspired Testing implemented the Thomson Reuters Elite 3E Automation Accelerator to facilitate test automation of updates from Elite 3E 2.9 to 3.0 and beyond.

Benefit to the client after implementation

Through the implementation of the Automation Accelerator, the client can confidently keep its Elite 3E implementation up-to-date beyond version 3.0.
