The new Clio Mobile App has arrived
You asked, we listened—and now it’s here. With more than 30 fresh features, the new Clio Mobile App is the most focused legal app for law firms—letting you accomplish more when you’re on the go.
The rebuilt Clio app offers a refreshed mobile experience, with a focus on the actions legal professionals take when they’re away from their desks.
The result? A mobile app that’s more functional, and more responsive than ever—giving you:
- Quicker access to the information you need. You can choose, for example, to have the app’s home screen be Contact or Matter-centric.
- Enhanced productivity and profitability. New quick actions—like the ability to duplicate activities with a swipe—save time.
- Better performance and reliability. Newer technology allows for significant improvements—especially for firms with large datasets.
What customers are saying
Clio customers are already appreciating the difference:
“The new app is a drastic change for Clio. It’s improved our workflow and reduced our need to always having a laptop with us during our daily court appearances.” – Christopher Meikle, Meikle West LLC
Updated Clio Manage + QuickBooks Online integration
When it comes to your firm’s finances, there’s no room for error and no time to waste. Luckily, with Clio Manage’s QuickBooks Online (QBO) integration, the good is getting even better—and more efficient.
Thanks to a series of improvements to our Clio Manage + QuickBooks Online integration for Boutique and Elite plans, you can now track, organize, and sync your firm’s financial workflows from Clio Manage to QuickBooks Online faster, and with more precision—removing manual data entry, reducing the risk of error, and helping you save time.
The integration’s new features help your firm:
- Track your firm’s users, understand staff performance, and determine compensation. The improved integration lets you link staff names to billable hours in your Clio Manage time entries, and then export to QuickBooks Online. You can also now filter by firm members and generate detailed reports in QuickBooks Online.
- Easily create and organize invoices. By setting invoice prefixes in Clio Manage that are easily identifiable in QuickBooks Online, you can stay better organized. This also ensures your financial information is accurate across both tools.
- Simplify expense creation. In just a few clicks, you can now capture hard costs in QuickBooks Online, and then sync them back to Clio Manage. This eliminates manual data entry, saves time, and maintains accurate recordkeeping.

Time to check in on Outstanding Balances?
Is your firm collecting all that they can—and should be?
According to the 2018 Legal Trends Report, 15% of hours on an invoice are not collected on, which means your firm is losing earned revenue.
Earlier this year, we told you about the launch of Clio Manage’s Outstanding Balances functionality—and how it can help law firms to get paid faster, and quickly improve realization and collection rates.
With our new Outstanding Balances features, you can:
Simplify your billing workflows
Outstanding balances are all in one place—which makes viewing, sharing, tracking, and managing client outstanding balances easier.
When you eliminate manual billing work, you gain back the time you’d lose tracking and sending invoices.
Get paid faster
Sending prompt and consistent bill reminders—outlining what’s owed and when—makes payments simpler and quicker for clients. And, by allowing clients to pay online instantly with credit card, via a secured payment link, you get paid faster.
Deliver exceptional client service
Firm-branded payment reminder emails—complete with a detailed breakdown of client invoices and their outstanding amounts—keeps things clear for clients, while providing a more professional client experience.
Cut the confusion
A single dashboard lets you understand which clients owe what, in an instant.
But what do our customers think?
“The first time I used Clio Manage’s Outstanding Balance feature, I got paid within 10 minutes. One of the main benefits of Outstanding Balances is that it allows us to share gentle payment reminders with clients, in just one click. I really like how I’m able to send multiple different invoices in one email, without spamming a client’s inbox. Now I can see at-a-glance, who owes what and whether I need to take a different action.” – Lori Gonzalez, CEO, The RayNa Corp
