iManage RAVN Extract

Unlock the full value of documents and unstructured data

Business transactions, asset transfers, loans, and many financial instruments are based on agreements and other complex form types. Millions of labor hours are spent every year by smart law firm associates and junior bankers rifling through agreements and extracting key data that is used in crucial transactional documents and analysis. This manual, labor-intensive effort is very expensive, time consuming, prone to errors and impacts overall company competitiveness. This labor cost can eat away at profitability or even make entire practices of business too expensive to pursue. Clients demanding innovative pricing models and cost-risk sharing are placing more of the burden to reduce costs on their suppliers.

Many organizations faced with this challenge, are exploring the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to streamline their business processes. AI’s ability to quickly automate cognitive tasks enables firms to dramatically reduce or eliminate the time consuming and costly work of reviewing and extracting key terms from thousands of disparate documents. Leveraging the power of AI, organizations can review all documents (not just a sample), improve accuracy, build a consistent low-cost review process, and ultimately deliver great work.

iManage RAVN Extract, powered by the award-winning RAVN AI technology, automatically reads, extracts and interprets critical business information from large volumes of documents and unstructured data, all from a single user interface. With iManage Extract, organizations can typically reduce manual labor costs by 50% or more, and transform unmanageable projects into streamlined and profitable processes.

Extract quickly identifies the structure of a document and uses out-of-the box or self-trained extractors to accurately find and extract specific terms or clauses. Once created, these extractors can be used across multiple projects. With Extract, organizations can develop multiple solutions to get more done in less time, access the value locked away inside their documents and turn moneylosing tasks into profit centers.
