Why law firms are ditching outdated software

Are you facing downtime, lack of remote access, inconvenient functionality, and high costs with your current software?

1. Work from anywhere

Clio can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection that means you can:

  • 2. Say goodbye to downtime

    Outdated server-based software and desktop-based software run the risk of crashing. Many firms report losing work, billable hours, client data, and more. Clio is cloud-based, and offers a financially-backed, 99.9% uptime guarantee service level agreement (SLA) which means you can:

  • Always have access to your work

    We know how important it is to always have access to your work that’s why we include uptime in our contractual obligation to you.

    Stop worrying about your technology going down

    Because Clio is cloud-based, it won’t go down to a power outage or natural disaster. Downtime with an on-premise server also means an entire afternoon of waiting for someone to come in to fix it.

    Get software updates—automatically

    No hidden fees, no effort required. Our technology is automatically updated with improvements all the time, so you’ll have the most current security measures and features.
