Historically, lawyers and legal professionals have struggled with time consuming administrative work -- importing and exporting massive amounts of paperwork, billing data and client information manually, or with outdated USB drives. Now, these professionals have the ability to integrate billing time and client data into the Xero online accounting platform from Clio's legal practice management solution, effectively bringing their entire legal practice into the cloud.
"All lawyers agree: there are never enough hours in the day. With their new relationship Xero and Clio bring two of our essential technologies together, effortlessly, enabling us to focus on what matters the most: our clients," said

"As an industry leader that recognizes the benefits of cloud computing, Clio is a natural addition to our ever-growing partner ecosystem," said
