Ironclad Inc | September 11, 2023
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.
