  • Richard D. says:

    I’ve used Knackly for about 3 years now. They have created multiple complex solution for me to replace HOTDOCS. I’ve always found Kim to be responsive to questions and for updating things that come up (hard to test every detail until you are able to use a specific part of the app). His cost are fair and delivery has always been on time. I wish other vendors were as responsive.

    I can strongly recommend Knackly and Kim Mayberry.


  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the price of Knackly?

    Users can get Knackly software for $79.00 per month, plus a "Jumpstart" set-up fee of $499.00.

    Does Knackly integrate with my Law Practice Management Software?

    As of this review, Knackly only integrates with Clio Manage. However, it's Open API means users can connect it to any other product that has an Open API.

    Can my law office accept eSignatures through Knackly?

    No. As of this review, Knackly does not have eSignature functionality built-in.

    Can my law firm accept ePayments through Knackly?

    No. As of this review, Knackly does not have an ePayment portal, nor does it integrate directly with any ePayment provider. However, because of the nature of LawPay and Knackly's Open API, it shouldn't be hard to work in that functionality.

    Does Knackly have Guided Interviews or client-facing forms?

    Yes. Knackly has external interviews that allows users to collect information from clients or other third-parties.

    Is Knackly easy for lawyers to use?

    Knackly is not a no-code solution. With it's advanced functionality comes some complexity. We would suggest that each user take advantage of their on-boarding process.

    Can my law firm use our own templates?

    Yes. You can easily bring your own templates to the Knackly platform. For HotDocs users, they even offer an automated conversion tool that will help you migrate your templates.

    Does Knackly have ready-made templates?

    No. As of this review, Knackly does not have ready-made templates built-in.

    How difficult is Knackly to set-up?

    Knackly is not a product that you slowly ease into. Users find the best results when they come prepared with, at least, an idea of what they want their automations to do. Because most users are setting up systems, rather than individual documents, Knackly requires some effort on the front-end. This is why they offer the Jumpstart program.

    Will Knackly work on my computer?

    Yes. Knackly works on Macs and PCs alike.
