Artificial Intelligence for Document Analysis: Professional Services Automation
Artificial Intelligence technology and data automation are among the biggest opportunities for professional services firms to improve their operations and grow their practice. This is even more true in a difficult economic environment, as companies are challenged to do more with less.
AI and automating data flows can be daunting, abstract, complex, and multifaceted topics. Where to start? How to get the most bang for the buck? Where does it meet an urgent need for the business? Where can it be implemented easily – what is the ‘low-hanging-fruit’ opportunity? What if you could deliver a ‘Rocket-Science Practice’ (Harvard Business Review) with everyday skills?
Start With the Essential Information in Your Documents
A great place to start is with the contracts and documents that run every business. Documents, no surprise, also run professional services businesses, in the form of Proposals, Master Service Agreements, Statements of Work, NDAs, Employment agreements and many others. With Docugami, your team can easily unlock all the key data and rich information trapped in all those documents. You can track obligations, deliverables, dates, pricing, renewals and much more from your committed MSA’s and SOW’s. You can automatically identify subtle differences in terms and conditions across all your contracts. You can catalogue all of your previously approved language, and use it effortlessly in new proposals.
Perhaps you have evaluated certain Legal AI products, or Contract Lifecycle Management products and found them to be complex to start or inflexible, focused on pre-ordained terms and conditions. What if setup could be accomplished by business users simply uploading documents? What if ALL the data in your essential documents could be analyzed and used, not just a few pre-determined items? What if AI-assisted contract reviews only required the user to focus on a handful of documents, then automatically get analysis done for ALL of them.
For many professional services firms, harnessing this document innovation can also extend to become a completely new service for your firm to offer your clients. Service Innovation can start with applying AI to your own foundational professional services documents internally to save cost and time, and then be applied to grow your business.

Leading Professional Services Firms See AI Shaping the Future of Work
In the past, artificial intelligence projects have involved complexity, big data sets, unfinished technology, and a great deal of planning, software development and expertise. Yet even under those circumstances, leading firms have found extensive benefit. “AI and its ability to augment human works is one of the most influential forces shaping the future of work,” according to Deloitte, among others.
Docugami streamlines the process of incorporating the power of AI into your operations, delivering all of the value at a fraction of the cost and effort. In fact, Docugami gives users an augmentation metric bar, to show in real time how much work the AI is doing to carry out a person’s evaluation across a large set of documents. You glance through a tiny percentage of the documents and Docugami completes the work across all the rest of the documents according to those instructions. You write the next contract, while Docugami provides helpful recommendations side by side.

Our AI-enabled Document Engineering saves tedious digital labor, and in doing so, creates a new more powerful, smarter way to get important work done.
