Hogan Lovells reduces risk of Elite 3E implementation through Helm360’s comprehensive quality assurance offering
With over 2500 lawyers on six continents, Hogan Lovells needed a highly configurable PMS platform that would allow the firm to effectively manage the global business. To enable this, the firm embarked upon the “Single Finance System” project with the Thomson Reuters Elite 3E platform at the very core of this global implementation.
Central to any major software implementation is a comprehensive and well-planned testing programme. This is to ensure accuracy of delivery of the core Elite 3E product, its configuration as it stands for Hogan Lovells, and any custom developments.
The firm’s commitment to a structured, comprehensive testing program led to the engagement of Helm360 to deliver a suite of over 200 test cases for both 3E stock processes and custom developments.
“Hogan Lovells have approached their Elite 3E implementation with a good appreciation for areas that could potentially add unnecessary risk to the project. Leveraging the Helm360 team in the 3E QA testing area has effectively freed up key personnel to focus on other key implementation tasks whilst still ensuring a quality solution is delivered to the business” – Bim Dave, Executive Vice President, Helm360.
Helm360’s appointment to deliver this suite of test cases was based on several key legal industry QA advantages:
- A highly cost-effective onshore/offshore hybrid delivery model.
- 5+ years’ experience testing 3E 2.6, 2.7 & 2.8 core product for Thomson Reuters.
- The ability to provide independent, unbiased testing to give a true picture of the customers’ solution.
- Reduce pressure on the internal project team so they can focus on key business activities vs repetitive testing cycles.
