One of the features we’re going to start up on the Clio blog is a new Case Studies series. These Case Studies are going to highlight the successes of our users in using Clio to help improve their practice.
Today, we’re proud to introduce our first case study: the Law Offices of Place & Hanley, PLLC, a North Carolina law firm based in Southern Pines.
Clio appealed to Place & Hanley as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering that provides time tracking, billing and reporting, client contact and document management, task scheduling, and business intelligence/performance metrics.
“We operate a highly mobile practice where we have to service the legal needs of our clients, as well as run the office and manage our employees,” explained Sara Hanley, partner at Place & Hanley. “Therefore, we are always looking for ways to build efficiency and increase productivity by implementing legal software applications.”
Hanley was thoroughly impressed with Clio’s user-friendly interface and intuitive design. “Within minutes of activating the software, our entire firm was up and using the software with relative ease, storing contacts, case information, appointments, and documents. Time entry was a breeze. And, where it used to take us 3 to 4 days to generate our bills, with Clio, the whole process took less than 2 hours.”
Clio delivered on the issue of affordability as well. As Hanley pointed out, “For an affordable monthly cost we’ve bought ourselves access to Clio, unlimited technical support and upgrades, and we’ve alleviated the need to maintain our own systems or to worry about backing up the information stored in Clio.”
Place & Hanley also selected Clio because of its secure online access to data from anywhere, with bank-grade encryption, frequent backup policy and escrow provision. Additionally, Hanley notes that Clio’s customer service resolved issues quickly and demonstrated commitment to customer’s needs by incorporating her suggestions and requests into the product.
“We’re firmly committed to delivering the best web-based practice management solution for solo and small law firms,” said Jack Newton, President of Themis Solutions. “We will continue to evolve and improve Clio by actively incorporating features requested by our users.”
