At a meeting with Steve Beuge, the CEO of Elite, earlier this week at the ILTA conference in Maryland, he told The Orange Rag that, in the wake of the A&O implementation, Lovells was “re-engaging” and back on course with its Elite 3E PMS implementation and now had a “better recipe for success and clearer vision of the final outcome”.

Keeping with the culinary metaphor, the proof of the pudding includes the fact that…

• over the past 60 days, five more 3E sites have gone live (there are now 24 organisations live on 3E)

• and, this month (August) has seen three more 3E orders – one in Australia (an old Aderant site – see below) + one in the UK + one in the US. (The latter two are an Enterprise upgrade and a 3rd party legacy system swap out.)

Beuge added that the company was now “starting to think about new products, new markets and possible acquisitions”.

That Australian win…
Seventy lawyer M+K Lawyers, which has offices in Melbourne, Sydney and Victoria, has selected 3E as its new practice management system. The firm's chief financial officer Len Methananda said the firm selected Elite 3E because they needed “a practice management system that will easily scale as our business grows and also allow us to meet evolving and unanticipated client expectation.” Adding that “We have been constrained by our current system's dated technology and its 'band aid' approach to new functionality.”

Orange Rag sources say the firm currently runs an old Aderant CMS system but had “stopped speaking to Aderant years ago” and that “the marriage had been over a long time ans it was only a case of when the divorce would be announced.”
