Announcing Client Collaboration and Online Bill Paying: Clio Connect
Posted by The Clio Team on February 2, 2009
Today at New York LegalTech 2009 (Feb. 2-4), we’re proud to unveil Clio Connect, a secure web-based portal for online document sharing, client collaboration, and online bill paying. Clio Connect will be available to all users of Clio at no additional charge.
Clio Connect works seamlessly as a value-added feature of the main Clio system. It allows Clio users to share information and collaborate with clients through an easy-to-use online interface. Clio Connect will also enable online bill-paying for the attorney’s clients. Attorneys simply send their clients a link to an outstanding invoice, and the client can easily pay the invoice via PayPal or other online payment systems.
Highly secure, Clio Connect is password-protected so only authorized parties, namely Clio users and their clients, can access sensitive client information. This means that, rather than managing large quantities of non-secure e-mail, lawyers can leverage Clio’s bank-grade security technology to safely share information and collaborate on key aspects of a case.
