Clio Announces Accounting Integration With Xero

Clio adds full banking and accounting functionality to its practice management platform through syncing with cloud-based accounting leader Xero.

Themis Solutions Inc., creator of Clio, the most widely used cloud-based legal practice management platform, announces a deep integration with Xero, a pioneer and leader in cloud-based accounting.

Xero provides a sophisticated accounting platform that is suitable for both small- and mid-sized law firms, including real-time financial reporting, payroll, bank reconciliation, invoicing, expense claim management, and accounts payable.

The integration allows Clio’s customers to automatically synchronize key client and financial data between Clio and Xero. Bills generated within Clio, along with payments to those bills, will be automatically synchronized with Xero. Duplicate data entry is eliminated thanks to seamless two-way communication between between Clio and Xero.

“We’re thrilled to introduce a comprehensive practice management and accounting solution to our mutual customers by way of this integration. Xero and Clio share a passion in delivering easy-to-use, beautiful software, which makes Xero a natural partner for Clio,” Clio co-founder and CEO Jack Newton said.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Clio to provide our customers an integrated legal practice management and accounting solution that allows law firms to run their business securely in the cloud.” commented Jamie Sutherland, Xero President of US Operations.

The Xero integration is being released initially as a beta with a general availability release anticipated in May 2013. Clio users interested in participating in the beta may request access via [email protected].
