Legaltech unicorn Clio is hosting Clio Cloud Conference this week, the ninth installment of their popular event. They started the week with a bang, unveiling a quartet of product updates or new features:
Clio Payments: gives lawyers client-centered payment options, easing the billing and collections process while offering secure online payment choices for their clients.
Clio Drive: manages documents right from Windows File Explorer while keeping them securely synced in Clio.
Clio for Clients: a portal designed for legal clients to securely communicate and share information with their lawyer.
Text notifications (which Clio says are coming soon): text notifications and reminders to confirm client attendance.
Sneakerhead lifesaver SoleSavy, the Vancouver-based sneaker marketplace startup, introduced Assist, a Google Chrome plugin that significantly reduces checkout time when purchasing sneakers online. Assist holds shipping and payment details and passes them to the final checkout screen, meaning an online purchase is instantaneous. This is huge in the sneaker community. Mere minutes is all it takes to miss out on sudden new release drops or limited-edition restocks.
ChopValue, a Vancouver-based sustainability brand that engineers minimalist homeware and decor made entirely from recycled chopsticks, is now available at Home Depot’s online store. The new retail partner joins Richmond-headquartered London Drugs in their partnering with the brand. London Drugs and ChopValue announced a partnership over the summer that placed ChopValue collection bins at every London Drugs location, advertised ChopValue's approach and stocked ChopValue products. The pair of companies have also set an ambitious goal: recycle more than 10 million chopsticks in 2021.
