Quickbooks is accounting software and Clio is a practice management software with invoicing capabilities.  The only accounting that Clio handles is generating invoices, receiving payments on the invoices, and trust account activity.  These transactions can be synced to Quickbooks Online one way from Clio, or manually exported from Clio and imported into the Quickbooks Desktop application.
