Announcing Clio

Today we’re happy to take the wraps off of Clio – something that we’ve had in development for over a year – and make the software available to a much wider beta audience. In doing so, we hope to harvest the input and feedback of real users over the coming weeks to help smooth the remaining rough-edges, and ensure that Clio is best adapted to the needs of lawyers ready to take the Web 2.0 plunge.

Clio is a web-based practice management tool that makes your files, clients, documents, time entries, and bills available to you wherever you have an internet connection.

The era of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has arrived, as evidenced by services such as and Google Docs, and lawyers are one of the audiences that stand most to gain from the transition from desktop-based software to web-based software. No more painful software deployments, configurations, upgrades and backups. Clio takes care of all of this for you in a secured, continually backed up service.

We’ll be revealing more about Clio over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
