National CRE leader cuts lease data extraction time by 80% with Docugami

Document Dysfunction 2-1

A major national real estate company was struggling with the complexities of managing a large portfolio of leases. The team needed an efficient way to extract, analyze, and manage all the vital information contained in thousands of lengthy and complex lease agreements. Using Docugami’s unique Document Engineering, the team cut the time needed to extract data from leases by 80%. 

Drowning in Documents

Commercial real estate is by its very nature a document-intensive industry. Every aspect of leasing a commercial property has to be memorialized in a lease agreement. Every property and every tenant are unique, so lease agreements can be 20, 50, 100 pages or more. The real estate company struggled with the arduous task of extracting, analyzing, and managing key information its extensive portfolio of leases. This information was critical to anticipating renewal dates, renovation schedules, and potential changes in lease terms and pricing. Manual data entry and processing were error-prone and time-consuming. Moreover, identifying lease provisions requiring updates or adjustments required meticulous scrutiny of each document, leading to inefficiencies and missed opportunities for optimization. The company experimented with a number of software solutions, but none gave them the power, flexibility, and accuracy they needed.

Docugami Provides Greater Accuracy and Flexibility

The breakthrough came when the real estate company discovered Docugami. Compared to other software products the company had tried, Docugami required much less setup time and no lengthy IT programming process. Frontline analysts and sales teams could use Docugami immediately and generate critical data from Day One. The team found the initial accuracy surprisingly good, and improved still further as the team optimized the training with their expertise in complex variances.  

Docugami provided greater accuracy and flexibility in unlocking the information in complex lease agreements.
