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.

Clio

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

Pros

  • Tracks time
  • Separates billable and nonbillable hours
  • Separates by Matters and clients

  • Clio is great at being accessible in a lot of places - it's accessible anywhere.
  • Clio does a good job at allowing time entry - it's particularly easy to enter time onto Clio.
  • Clio does a good job at maintaining consistent access to client files and info related to them. I can count on one hand the number of times it's been slow to respond in the past year.

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?

I selected Clio for the app integrations which appeared better than Rocket Matter. I am lucky to have a fiancê in tech who has helped me tremendously with automation and Clio has been relatively easy to use. When I selected Clio, it didn't look like Rocket Matter had the same level of app integration that I wanted.
