Assembly Software, the visionary creators behind the acclaimed case management solution Neos, proudly unveils NeosAI, the legal industry's first native-built AI technology that is seamlessly integrated within the Neos case management platform. This groundbreaking achievement sets a new standard for legal software innovation.
NeosAI represents a paradigm shift, empowering law firms to harness AI-powered intelligence effortlessly without disrupting their established workflows. Unlike its competitors, NeosAI autonomously operates inside of Neos, eliminating the need for cumbersome data transfers to external systems, complicated third-party integrations, or duplicated data entry. You never leave the Neos workflow, thereby enhancing your NeosAI user experience.
The robust Microsoft ecosystem and OpenAI technology power NeosAI, harnessing cutting-edge technology at the epicenter of the AI world. Numerous companies currently emphasize specialized point solutions or utilize AI solely for a particular aspect of legal technology, such as demand letters. NeosAI goes far beyond this limited capability, allowing a firm to generate case, communication and contract content while saving time, driving productivity, efficiency and profitability. All of this is realized through the NeosAI engine that categorizes, transcribes, generates, and compiles pertinent case files for both settlement and trial matters.
"NeosAI goes beyond effortlessly generating content from Neos templates for multiple legal scenarios and recognizing and assigning data to relevant cases. It revolutionizes the way law firms operate, liberating employees from mundane tasks and enabling them to maximize their unique talents for unparalleled client engagement," says Rick Cirigliano, Chief Product Officer at Assembly.
Neos has consistently led the pack in the case management software industry. The introduction of NeosAI solidifies its position as the ultimate choice for law firms embracing technology to surge ahead of their competition. While the beta release of NeosAI just scratches the surface of its immense potential, Assembly promises that Neos will soon achieve groundbreaking advancements for law firms, supported by a multi-generational product release strategy that extends into the foreseeable future. NeosAI will soon allow firms to leverage the full potential of AI at every stage of a case.
"The beta release of NeosAI is just the beginning; it is the catalyst that will propel firms into a future where efficiency is optimized to unprecedented levels. We believe technology should act as an enabler, empowering law firms to achieve the best outcomes for their clients without compromising quality," says Daniel Farrar, CEO of Assembly.

Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), a leading digital experience platform, announced AI Generated Review Response enabling businesses to deliver a more engaging customer experience. This new capability within Yext Reviews enables businesses to use AI with their own data to automatically generate individualized review experiences across owned and third-party channels.
In today's digital landscape, customer engagement with reviews has become vital to a business’ success. Customers make major buying decisions based on reviews — and search engines use them as a critical input to rank results. A recent poll of Yext customers showed that businesses that respond to more than 50 percent of their reviews saw a nearly a half of a star improvement in their ratings over businesses that don’t. However, responding to reviews is difficult and resource intensive. AI Generated Review Response makes it easier with a single system that enables businesses to scale small teams and respond to customer reviews across any digital channel.
New AI Generated Review Response enables businesses to automatically generate contextually appropriate and brand-based responses by analyzing tone and sentiment of posts. By leveraging Yext Content along with generative models, companies can deliver responses using their unique business data and voice to address specific, real-world reviews across any digital channel, including mobile, web, chat platforms, and social media. For example, suppose a franchise owner sees a surge of reviews for their Minneapolis locations following a promotional launch. In that case, Reviews can automatically generate responses that are localized for the region and specific store locations but also entirely personalized for each customer.
“With Yext, businesses have the platform to elevate engagement and deliver brand-building experiences,” said Marc Ferrentino, president and chief operating officer, Yext. “Engaging with customers allows them to take those experiences to the next level. It is a massive competitive advantage to provide one-of-a-kind review experiences at scale for every customer which is now possible with Yext Reviews.”
Yext (NYSE: YEXT) helps organizations build digital experiences across any channel on our open and composable platform. The Yext Digital Experience Platform collects and organizes content to deliver AI-led experiences for any organization’s customers, employees, or partners. For more than 15 years, thousands of companies worldwide have trusted Yext to create seamless customer experiences at scale across search engines, websites, mobile apps, and hundreds of other digital touchpoints.
