Stem client Themis Solutions announced new expanded functionality today with ClientConnect, a new set of enhancements to their web-based law practice management tool, Clio. ClientConnect is an interactive client portal module that allows lawyers to extend their web-services including: document sharing, collaboration, web-based invoicing, and online bill payments.
Launched at the New York LegalTech conference, ClientConnect is aimed at the web-based management of projects similar to Basecamp, and expanded web-invoicing and payment tracking functionality similar to FreshBooks. Both additions look to be an excellent complement to Clio’s core functionality, which previously included:
- case/matter management
- time tracking
- client contact and document management
- task scheduling
- trust accounting
- performance metrics
ClientConnect really expands Clio’s capabilities. Clio’s clients can now securely share information online via an easy-to-use interface, and send electronic bills which can then be payed using PayPal or other online payment systems.
Similar to Clio’s original core modules, ClientConnect is safe and secure, backed by a data escrow guarantee, bank-grade encryption, and rigid password protection (read more about it on Clio’s three-part series on privacy, security, and data accessibility, as noted by Stem last fall). Best of all, ClientConnect is a value-added, free of charge addition available to all Clio subscribers.
The release of ClientConnect was also accompanied by the news that in Clio’s 2008 customer satisfaction survey, 100% of subscribers said they would recommend Clio to other lawyers.
