Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • I really enjoy the ease of use of the software and the communication with the team members, specifically [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN.
  • I know that there is a TEAM supporting me, while I still know the name of my main contact person. The platform is easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.
  • Cons

  • Not all of my business accounts can be connected via feed (ie intuit payroll), which requires a drag and drop upload each month.
  • When I confirm those purchases it is usually 30+ transactions and at that point I don't even remember all of them so it takes a while for me to locate receipts. I really dislike that too.
  • Pros

  • I have to say the Cleo support and help section is spectacular and one of the best I've ever come across. They have a clear academy which offers training on specific things you can do in the software.
  • Clio Manage and Grow have been excellent additions to our practice. We especially love the integrations with other programs that we use.
  • Cons

  • Document automation is TERRIBLE and invoicing just means linking to Quickbooks.
  • Billing is cumbersome and inefficient, lacking in options to suspend printing for those clients who are in collections.
