Nextpoint is the leading cloud-based evidence management service. Clio is the leading provider of cloud-based practice management software. In forging this agreement, the two companies will offer significant discounts to customers using both services, as well as the formation of a beta user group to direct the development of key integration points between Nextpoint’s litigation support technology and Clio’s practice management software.
The announcement comes at the start of the Clio Cloud Conference, a two-day legal technology event being held in Chicago from September 22 to 23.
Nextpoint is a comprehensive evidence management service empowering users to discover the facts in their case.
