Likelihood to Recommend

3E Elite

3E Elite is well suited for a company or firm that has many clients and is engaged in pro bono activities, particularly one that will track pro bono time for employees and credit them for that time. Additionally, companies with large clients can use it to determine where the bulk of their business comes from.

The smaller the practice, the better Clio is for you. The newer the practice, the better Clio is for you. The tech-savvier the practice, the better Clio is for you. For practices that involve a great deal of repetitive work, the document automation functions would be just wonderful. Clio is lousy for debt collection practice - there just is no feasible way to make the collection process work, particularly from a billing and collection standpoint. There is no way to track the debtor's ledger effectively. Not well supported by Clio either. The mobile app is super clunky. I keep it on my iPhone and iPad because it's the only way to move a file into Clio from those places. But otherwise, I just use the web interface from my mobile devices

Clio

  • The billing screen is serviceable but unwieldy. It is hard to get your bills to look the way that you want in many cases.
  • The document management process could stand some improvement. In order to manipulate a document, you have to download it, work on it, then re-upload the new version. I'd like a local client or a seamless way to edit and then automatically see the update taken into Clio.
  • The task entry is good but not great. I'd like to see a way to have it integrate into my iPhone's reminders list.
  • The quickbooks online sync has been a constant source of frustration for our bookkeeper, who has to monitor daily and hardly ever goes a day without an item failing to sync.

Clio 9.0
Based on 2 answers
Rather than talk in generalities, I'll give two specific examples. First, after updating my OS, I got locked out of Clio. I was back in, up and running, with no loss of data, within an hour thanks to Clio customer support.Second, I made some specific recommendation for features that I thought would be useful. Those recommendations fell in a black hole, with the suggestion that I try a very buggy third party integration app. Clio is making lots of money from lawyers using its software. Why can't Clio create the integrations and test them if Clio is not willing to build them into its platform?

The UI is far better than MyCase. For RocketMatter, it was 6 vs. half dozen. But for a dumb name, our firm may have chosen rocket matter. They do many of the same things. Clio has the gravitas of having been first and longest to the cloud based law practice management system. The track record brings about experience and resources. I'm often frustrated by the lack of transparency about what's coming down the pike and how long it is going to take. I can't say for certain whether this is better or worse than the others, but I have the sense that RocketMatter is better about that. ProLaw was locally hosted and looks to be built for cataclysmically huge law firms. Not for us
