We stand by our product. The Clio platform is financially backed by our 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Product

Jack of all trades, master of none

ZolaSuite stretches themselves thin by trying to do too much. This results in a platform with many features that are underdeveloped and underutilized.

For example, customers may still need to purchase Quickbooks to complete payroll.

ZolaSuite customers may have a hard time finding bookkeepers/accountants who are familiar with or willing to learn the system.

Works with your essential tools

Clio gives you everything your firm needs, and connects with all your essential tools, including Microsoft Outlook and Teams, Google’s Gmail and Google My Business, and Zoom.

With 200+ integrations available, Clio gives you the ability to grow and adapt to meet the future needs of your firm.

Integrations

Prepare for data silos and clunky workarounds

ZolaSuite claims their product does not rely on integrations, however their product lacks features that are necessary to manage a law practice. For example, law firms will still need a tool like Quickbooks to do payroll.

Due to this anti-integration stance, there are only a handful of integrations available. This quickly leads to siloed data and clunky, manual workflows.

Flexible pricing to meet your needs

Choose from a range of flexible pricing plans—starting at $39/month—and update your subscription at any time.

PLUS, get access to exclusive bar association member discounts.

Pricing

User minimums create a barrier to entry

3 user minimum creates difficulties for small firms or firms with part-time staff to purchase. These firms must employ a consultant to get access.

And yes, data migrations are free for law firms of any size and on any plan.
