Inspired Testing partners with Thomson Reuters Elite
New Alliance Partnership provides quality assurance testing for 3E implementations.
Multinational software testing company Inspired Testing has announced a new Alliance Partnership with Thomson Reuters Elite, part of the Legal Professionals division of Thomson Reuters.
Alliance Partnerships are one of four partnership categories with Elite. These mutually beneficial relationships play an integral role in the legal practice management ecosystem. They deliver extensive value to global clients, automating business processes, increasing profitability and providing a collaborative platform to find solutions to today’s pressing business challenges.
Inspired Testing, which is ISO 27001 certified, has successfully provided testing support for hundreds of clients across a range of industry sectors, with a breadth of experience within the legal sector and deep knowledge of the 3E enterprise business management solution.
The new partnership offers 3E customers a testing service that ensures robust quality assurance during any implementation. This comes with a full suite of test services, including test consultancy, functional testing, and performance and automation testing. Working alongside its sister company Emerald Consulting, Inspired Testing ensures the end-to-end service is managed seamlessly and with full data protection.
The Thomson Reuters Elite Partner Program connects its clients with expert technology, services, and consulting organisations that represent many major brands, providing a one-stop global marketplace that fosters co-operation, streamlines the buy-sell cycle, and helps all involved achieve a competitive edge.
“The Alliance Partnership affords Inspired Testing an opportunity to provide a word-class testing service to the legal industry by maximising the deep Elite 3E skills of our sister company in the Dynamic Technologies group, Emerald Consulting,” says Jacques Fouché, CEO, Inspired Testing. “We are extremely excited to bring to the partnership our extensive knowledge and wealth of expertise in the software testing environment to the legal industry. We also recognise the opportunities for our own people as they are able to maximise their potential by servicing a wider spectrum of clients globally.”
Security and protection of data are also of paramount importance, says Fouché. “In our line of business — software testing — we are exposed to massive volumes of data from a broad range of industries, including retail, financial, legal and medical. ISO 27001 certification ensures the protection of our clients’ data, whether that data is exposed to our information systems, or we are granted access to our clients’ systems.”
3E from Thomson Reuters Elite offers an end-to-end enterprise business management solution that allows law firms and professional services organisations to run all operational aspects of their business. Designed from the ground up on Microsoft .NET, 3E offers built-in application development capabilities. The unique architecture enables firms to become more agile, lawyers to quickly respond to client needs, and staff to easily track and manage activity on any scale — from single-office to multi-office, and multinationals.
“Emerald Consulting has been a Product and Implementation Partner of Thomson Reuters Elite since 1999,” says Hanri Edwards, Manager, Emerald Consulting. “Our service offering includes implementation, installation, customisation and integration of Elite 3E. Through our collaboration with our sister company, Inspired Testing, we will now be able to offer specialised software testing services to our clients, as a one-stop shop service. Testing is a critical and integral aspect of product implementation and a proper testing strategy mitigates the risk associated with implementing new software.”
