Clio is a management software that allows a legal business to operate online fully. It offers a cloud-based system that allows performing tasks on all levels of managing a business. Client intake, contact, meeting and document management, timekeeping, trust accounting, and billing can all be done through one unified software. Having all documentation in one place simplifies the management process by atomizing ordinary or repetitive tasks, scheduling time, and modifying the working process. Such software saves time for business owners and employees while increasing profitability by saving time doing simple administrative tasks. When the business grows bigger and the working flow gets more intricate, a tool for team management such as Clio becomes useful as it gives a way to assign tasks to team members.
While working with the software, I learned to use a complicated system to navigate across files stored on different devices. Clio provides unlimited cloud storage for all devices. It made navigating across distinct files in the whole office from home extremely convenient. All the notifications and full functionality are also available on my phone. Moreover, I learned to make all accounting and email systems interconnected in Clio to be timely notified of replies and follow-ups. Thus, this software serves as a central hub for the office. Once all the files and accounts were notified, I also explored calendering and timekeeping options in Clio. An automated process and task creation were made simple in the software. In the end, I explored the law firm performance dashboard in Clio, which provides detailed analytics for the money and documentation flow. It becomes a useful tool to increase productivity as the software pinpoints the main features that need improvement.
