Ironclad Unveils Ironclad Contract AI (CAI), a Contract Analysis Tool

ironclad-unveils-ironclad-contract
Ironclad, the foremost digital contracting platform serving modern legal teams, has launched the beta version of Ironclad Contract AI (CAI), an innovative product set to redefine contract analysis. Also known as Ironclad CAI, this groundbreaking tool empowers users to conduct intricate contract analysis within their contract database through an intuitive chat interface. It introduces AI agents capable of managing complex multistep analyses by dividing tasks into subtasks, executing them, and assessing the outcomes to guide subsequent actions. Notably, Ironclad CAI stands as the sole legal product, providing users with complete transparency into the steps taken to reach a specific conclusion.

Ironclad CEO and co-founder Jason Boehmig commented,

Ironclad Contract AI is a game-changer for contracts, while conventional legal chatbots offer raw results that necessitate further lawyer analysis, CAI can sift through a repository of contracts and perform the reasoning required to answer nearly any contract-related inquiry. It not only provides answers but also reveals the logical path it followed. Unlike most generative AI, CAI is an open book.

Ironclad CAI streamlines contract analysis for organizations, allowing users to describe the contracts they seek or pose questions without the need for filters, advanced keyword logic, or extensive training. Fully integrated with Ironclad's comprehensive analytics platform, Insights, CAI generates charts to visually represent data for relevant queries. Users can pose a wide range of questions, such as:
  • "Has my contract workload increased recently?"
  • "What contracts are set for closure this quarter by the sales team?"
  • "Have we ever agreed to unlimited liability?"

Cai GoGwilt, Ironclad co-founder and Chief Architect, noted,

Contract analysts can spend months on contract review, a crucial yet time-consuming task. CAI can handle routine questions, such as identifying total contract values in a specific jurisdiction, but it can also tackle challenging, creative inquiries in minutes. For instance, our team asked CAI to justify a pay raise, and it not only comprehended the question but delivered a compelling argument based on contract turnaround times, TCV metrics, number of contract terms, and more.

Todd Berman, the CTO of SMS marketing platform Attentive, emphasized the game-changing nature of Rivet's visual programming environment. He highlighted its collaborative nature and visual interface, which he believes allows for the creation of complex AI chains in significantly less time than other environments. According to him, Rivet sets a new standard for prompt tools.

Ironclad also unveiled Rivet, an open-source visual programming environment designed for creating generative AI products. Rivet accelerates product development and offers step-by-step visibility into Ironclad CAI's process and analysis. Developers can collaborate on complex logic chains, test and iterate on products, and observe real-time execution, all within a remote environment. Rivet has garnered praise from early users and is now available to the public.

In addition to Ironclad CAI and Rivet, Ironclad announced several AI enhancements, updates, and upcoming releases aimed at streamlining contract uploads and data extraction:

- Import contracts via email: Contracts forwarded to a designated email address are automatically tagged, indexed, and stored in the repository using Ironclad's AI-powered Smart Import.
- Extract data from legacy contracts: Users can tag and extract metadata from previously uploaded contracts without Smart Import.
- Identify metadata discrepancies: Ironclad AI detects discrepancies between metadata and contract text, eliminating the need for manual tracking and comparison.

Ironclad places a strong emphasis on responsible AI use with a security framework that focuses on data governance, advanced user access management, and data encryption to protect privacy and security.

New SysAid Copilot counters ineffective chatbot deployments with next-gen, generative AI-powered IT Service Management

SysAid | January 12, 2024

SysAid, a leading provider of IT and Enterprise Service Management solutions, proudly announces the commencement of an exciting new chapter with the commercial release of SysAid Copilot, designed to liberate organizations by putting AI to work, for them and their people. At the core of SysAid Copilot is the AI Chatbot for End Users delivering always-on, 24/7 service. This conversational self-service experience uses generative AI to help employees work through issues by delivering answers, utilizing the organization's data, from knowledge base articles through ticket resolution history – as well as verified external data sources, links, and documents. Combating ineffective virtual agent deployment According to Gartner, "Staffing an IT service desk is difficult and a considerable expense. Long phone queues and abandoned calls are not uncommon. Yet, many I&O leaders have experienced issues with the implementation and adoption of virtual support agents, which are aimed at alleviating some of these challenges." One of the main factors attributed to these issues is that initial deployments of chatbots were ineffective[1]. With no code zero setup required, SysAid Copilot comes with a feature set designed to counter the potential pitfalls arising from sub-optimal deployment of traditional virtual support agents. The AI Usage Dashboard clearly reflects the value provided to both admins and end users through usage of SysAid Copilot features. For example, adoption of the AI Chatbot for End Users and Assistive AI features for admins. It also offers insights into AI-contained issues, indicating the rate at which problems were automatically resolved by SysAid Copilot using the organization's data and averting the need for ticket creation. In parallel, admins maintain ultimate control over the quality of responses with the ability to monitor, edit, and fine-tune answers provided by the AI Chatbot enabled by a Monitor and Fine-Tune feature. AI Author enables the provision of consistently professional service by rephrasing replies, elaborating on answers, and breaking down information into simple steps with responses that are comprehensible and accessible for employees. This also exempts admins from the need to grapple with wording and grammar. Embedded into the channels that employees already use, SysAid Copilot facilitates quick adoption within the organization. For example, employees get service in a single click from the AI Chatbot (one-click ticket creation) or automatically via the AI Emailbot, delivering an immediate response even before an admin sees the ticket. Increasing productivity SysAid Copilot leverages cutting-edge generative AI technology, elevating admins to play a strategic role in the organization and improving IT productivity by over 20%. "The release of SysAid Copilot is a momentous milestone in our quest to lead organizations on a transformative journey toward AI-driven organizational processes and excellence," said Avi Kedmi, SysAid CEO. "Tapping into specialized data accumulated from thousands of customers and millions of users, SysAid Copilot enables employees to enjoy a fully conversational experience, freeing up admins to focus on more strategic work and become the catalyst for organizational productivity. SysAid Copilot orchestrates service management across the organization, embodying our commitment to infusing intelligence and ease into the workday, reshaping the landscape of service management. And this is only the beginning, as our dynamic roadmap promises a steady stream of groundbreaking features and capabilities ahead, ensuring the success of our customers." The General Availability of SysAid Copilot follows a 5-month design partner and beta program in which a diverse and engaged group of active customers played a pivotal role in refining and enhancing the product. The dedication and enthusiasm of the beta partners have been instrumental in shaping the product and ensuring that it is finely tuned to address the unique needs of SysAid's customer community, not only meeting but exceeding their expectations. Enhancing CSAT scores and slashing MTTR SysAid Copilot includes AI Intelligent Categorization automatically categorizing tickets submitted via the AI Chatbot for End Users and routes to the right people while making suggestions for more appropriate categories for tickets that come in through other channels, reducing human error in ticket categorizations by ~40%. In parallel, AI Case Summarization provides admins with a real-time summarization of the ticket content and employee sentiment (AI Emotion) so admins can understand the context, history, and end-user sentiment at a glance. "SysAid Copilot has helped our organization a great deal in providing support quicker. Since our department is oftentimes understaffed, wait times are higher than normal, and with SysAid Copilot we've witnessed those wait times plummeting," said Nathan Gleed, IT at the City of St George. "One of the most amazing aspects of this new technology is its continual learning, consistently improving performance and generating more accurate and sophisticated output." About SysAid SysAid is on a mission to liberate organizations by putting AI to work for them and their people. We orchestrate service management across organizations with generative AI that taps into specialized data accumulated from thousands of customers and millions of users. With zero setup requirements, our conversational AI manages employees' requests, assists with queries, and accelerates the resolution of issues. With intelligence and ease infused into the workday, productivity thrives so that employees can focus on what they're meant to do, and organizations are free to fulfill their purpose.
