Thomson Elite has acquired Expert Ease, the developer of Deal Proof and other software. This adds to Thomson’s already strong offerings in knowledge management.  

The press release on PR Newswire provides additional detail. I could not find any information on this story on either the Thomson Elite or the Expert Ease sites.

I have never been a hands-on user of Deal Proof, but I have evaluated it and the related Quicksift product. Both are very interesting and promising technologies. I believe the press release that this will help Thomson and West extend Westkm to provide greater functionality in transactional documents. It will be interesting to see how the merger is managed and what combined products are offered.
