Clio’s ground-up reinvention features over 220+ enhancements and incorporates nine years of customer feedback to further advance the leading practice management platform.
VANCOUVER, BC – Today, Clio, the leading cloud-based legal practice management platform, releases the widely anticipated new Clio experience.
“In 2008, we were the first to bring practice management to the cloud, forever changing how lawyers work,” said Jack Newton, CEO and Co-Founder of Clio. “As we usher in the next decade of innovation, we are committed to transforming the practice of law, for good. The new Clio experience creates the foundation for us to realize this vision.”
The new Clio experience is a ground-up reimagining of Clio. “We’ve taken nine years of learnings from working with the best law firms in the world and incorporated them into the largest, most important product release in Clio’s history,” said Newton. “It is a replatforming of Clio on a new set of web technologies making it an order of magnitude faster.”
To ensure the new Clio experience met the needs of customers and incorporated their feedback, a group of current Clio customers received advanced access to the platform. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
“It’s slick, fast and intuitive. The parts of the interface you need most often are always there, with no scrolling,” said Jason Morris of Round Table Law LLP. “With the new Clio experience, our lawyers and staff are going to be more efficient than ever before. I’m excited about the possibilities that will come from the the new API capabilities.”
“The new UI makes better use of space allowing me to do and see more in a single screen. The buttons and drop-downs feel more intuitive, and the ability for customization is a welcomed touch,” said Kevin Vela, Founding Partner of Vela Wood.
Industry experts agree.
“It’s going to be a game changer for innovative law firms,” said Sam Glover of the Lawyerist. “This is taking Clio-as-legal-solutions-delivery platform to the next level.”
The advantages of the new Clio experience go deeper than new features and improved design. Every aspect of Clio, including mobile, now leverages a common Application Programming Interface, API v4, which lets partners and customers alike connect technologies to Clio that can communicate and use each other’s functions. Clio is also fostering an ecosystem that far outpaces the rate of innovation of any single company. With its network that now includes over 70 integration partners, Clio offers more integrations than any practice management solution. Discover new tools and extensions in Clio’s new App Directory.
Clio’s growing number of partners span a range of categories, but have one common focus—they are transformative solutions that complement Clio, while enabling legal professionals to scale their firms, harness new efficiencies, and better serve their clients in an increasingly competitive marketplace. To encourage further app development, Clio has also launched the $100,000 Launch//Code contest, and $1 million Clio Developer Fund.
“We believe technology will continue to transform and redefine the legal practice, and we want to provide a fertile ground for new creativity and innovation,” said Newton. “We want the Clio platform to be the first place developers look to build innovative legal technology tools. In turn, we know this will benefit our customers, who will gain a competitive edge.”
