Why Go With LawTap vs Clio Scheduler?

Which is better LawTap or Clio Scheduler?

Clio is a leading cloud-based legal practice management system. LawTap has been a Clio API Partner and approved App Developer since February 2018. LawTap has even sponsored ClioCon. Following their Lexicata acquisition (now Clio Grow), Clio introduced Clio Scheduler as beta software in October 2019.

Given Clio Scheduler and LawTap focus on the legal industry, there are similarities between Clio Scheduler and LawTap - but importantly, some key differences.

You might wonder how Clio Scheduler compares to LawTap when searching for the best law firm appointment booking and scheduling software.

Reason 1
LawTap's Powerful Legal Practice Management System Integrations

Clio Scheduler locks you into Clio's ecosystem and is only available with the Clio Suite subscription (which starts at USD$99/user/month). In contrast, LawTap works with all versions of Clio Manage. If you are happy with Clio, you should consider Clio Scheduler and LawTap.

LawTap's powerful integration with Clio enables your firm to:

  • eliminate double-booking with secure integration to your Clio Calendar/s.
  • book appointments for Clio Contacts with unlimited email, text/SMS reminders and payment options.
  • use appointment forms to collect client intake data at the time of booking and automatically populate your existing Clio Matter Fields.
  • link appointments to a new or existing Clio Matter and automatically generate time-entry Activities which you can instantly bill in Clio.

LawTap is also 'practice management system agnostic' and integrates with many leading legal practice management systems. If you move from Clio to another legal practice management system in future, LawTap and your firm's appointment booking and scheduling will be one less thing to worry about during your transition!
