Picking Practice Management Software For your Firm (120)

Picking Practice Management Software For your Firm (120)

Season #2

So… Are you going out on your own?  

If you are starting up or planning to start up your firm this podcast is for you. 

Being a solo- practitioner is where we all start. It can be a scary move, but it is well worthwhile!

When you’re starting your firm, you want to be focused on getting clients in the door so that you can have a healthy cash flow and climb to the next level. Automating as much as possible is essential and starting with the right practice management software helps you with that.

Let me go into more detail about what is happening with the practice management landscape, especially here in Australia.

Just recently, in one of our masterclasses at the Scalable Business Lounge, we invited a software practice management systems guru to speak to us about all the options on the market. Having someone who knows an awful lot about these practice management software products, what they do and what they don’t do which ones are good for what types of firms, sizes, and practice areas were invaluable to all the lawyers in the group. 

In my law firm, we have had the same software platform since 2009; we haven’t always been happy with it. So I tried to move to a new platform, but that journey is so overwhelming and difficult that I am stuck with this ridiculous lock-in contract I learned later that you could negotiate terms that don’t involve lock-in contracts. 

Now we have a further option in Australia with Clio now a player. Last year I went to the Clio conference in Nashville and learnt that I love everything about this company and product. 

What I love about this product that sets them apart and why I’m so excited!

  1. No lock-in contract and the user fee is affordable
  2. Clio Manage - standard legal software management system
  3. Clio Grow, this add-on allows you to manage your front-end marketing (intake form, calendar, email marketing) inside your software.

Everything integrates into CLIO…so you are able to streamline your law firm in a way that no other practice management software can.
