Forethought’s Autoflows: AI-Driven Revolution in Customer Support

Forethought | September 25, 2023

Forethought, a leader in generative AI for customer support, has introduced Autoflows, a groundbreaking autonomous resolution capability for SupportGPT. This innovation marks a significant step towards a more efficient, goal-oriented, AI-centric future in customer support. In the fast-evolving landscape of customer support, AI is positioned to revolutionize the way businesses interact with their clients. However, many large enterprises, despite claiming to be AI-first, still rely on outdated manual workflows rooted in the CRM era. These workflows consume hours of valuable time and often lead to subpar performance, dissatisfied customers, and delayed value realization. Forethought aims to transform this outdated approach into a system of intelligence, redefining what it means to be truly AI-first. Deon Nicholas, CEO and Co-Founder of Forethought, reportedly emphasized, Automation over the past decade has focused heavily on rules and tasks and building manual workflows. But the manual workflow is the Achilles heel of the AI-first future. [Source – Businesswire] Autoflows empower customer support leaders to define desired issue resolutions in plain, natural language, eliminating the need for complex decision trees or predefined rulesets. Leveraging AI, Autoflows accurately predicts user needs and determines efficient steps to achieve these desired outcomes. This efficiency allows support agents to redirect their focus towards more complex issues, transcending simplistic task-oriented processes. Autoflows promise significant benefits: Enhanced Customer Experience: Autoflows facilitate natural conversations with customers, employing generative AI models trained on real agent responses and CRM data. Improved Performance: These flows autonomously resolve customer issues and take actions in alignment with agent guidelines, brand preferences, and user prompts. Reduced Time to Value: Autoflows can be created in minutes using natural language, a stark contrast to the days it typically takes to construct intricate decision trees. Brent Pliskow, GM & VP of Customer Support at Upwork, expressed his appreciation for the innovation. He mentioned that they are constantly seeking to incorporate new generative AI capabilities into their customer support processes, with the goal of improving the customer experience and enhancing internal efficiency. He noted that, when they replaced specific manual workflows with Autoflows, they observed significant time savings compared to the traditional approach of building workflows. Additionally, he reported an increase of up to 27% in customer satisfaction in these particular use cases. About Forethought Founded in 2018, Forethought is a prominent generative AI company specializing in customer service automation. Its solutions seamlessly integrate generative AI powered by large language models (LLMs) to enhance support team efficiency. It offers instant case resolution, predictive case prioritization, and agent assistance, all within a single platform.

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

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. [Source: PR Newswire] 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. [Source: PR Newswire] 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. About Ironclad: Ironclad is the premier contract lifecycle management platform for forward-thinking companies, facilitating billions of contracts annually. Notable innovators like L'Oréal, Salesforce, OpenAI, and others rely on Ironclad to streamline contract collaboration, accelerate contract processes while ensuring compliance, and transform contracts into vital sources of operational intelligence. It accommodates diverse contract workflows, from sales agreements and HR contracts to complex NDAs. In April, Ironclad earned a place on Forbes AI 50 2023 and was recognized as a Top Company to Bet Your Career On by Business Insider in 2023.
