First UK Elite 3E site goes live

This story seems to have got lost in the aether however DWF has just announced that it has become the first law firm in the UK to go live with Elite 3E.

3E has replaced
DWF’s existing PMS software (as a result of the DWF/Ricksons merger this included Norwel and SOS systems) throughout its offices in Leeds, Liverpool,
London, Manchester and Preston. The DWF roll-out has taken two
years to plan and implement – DWF announced the 3E order in June 2007. DWF managing partner Andrew Leaitherland said “DWF has more than doubled in size in the past three years and our
rapid expansion had resulted in the firm having different
practice management systems in operation. With 3E, we have gained one
state of the art platform from which the entire business can operate,
and which can adapt and grow with the firm.” (This announcement was made directly by DWF rather than through Elite.

This is good news for Elite and hopefully good news for DWF also. Being a high profile “go live” it would be very interesting to be kept updated on the status of the project over the next few months. Post-live satisfaction is the proof of the pudding.

A&O are next in line too – perhaps the beginning of Elite's resurgence in the market? With a number of 3E go live's recently and on the cards over coming months (according to Elite's marketing machine) it seems clear 3E has now matured, and this perhaps spells the end for Aderant's run of wins, which has been based largely on the perception that 3E, though conceptually a far superior product wasn't quite ready.
Anyone want to place any bets? I'm betting (hoping) that we made the right decision…
