Benefits of RAVN’s Applied Cognitive Engine

Increase Margins

Adoption of Artificial Intelligence can drive improvement in margins from two perspectives; not only by monetising the increased efficiencies yielded but also by cutting administration and storage costs through intelligent legacy data clean-up and other data governance activities.

Mitigates risk

Apply Artificial Intelligence to your data governance tasks, for example to automate the determination of whether business documentation deviates from accepted norms and risk profiles. Similarly, avoid regulatory penalties for non-compliance with data retention policies by intelligently sub-dividing your data into clear categories with appropriate actions. And in both cases reduce the level of mistakes due to human error.

Increase efficiency

Automatically distil key information from your content, minimise the arduous work that would otherwise have to be done manually and get to the added value effort quicker. Employees can then be re-focused on more productive tasks in the business.

    This technology will bring us a flexible environment that is dedicated to our firm so we can ensure we can look after our clients as efficiently as possible. We chose to collaborate with RAVN as we recognised them as a leading AI provider and wanted their product to be part of the firm’s portfolio. 
    Santiago Gómez Sancha, ICT Director at Uría Menéndez
    For our lawyers, time is very precious and we needed a fast, reliable and accurate search engine that was easily integrated into our existing systems. The team at RAVN proved they could tick all the boxes we required. 
    Flavio Romerio, Partner at Homburger
    The software will read, interpret and extract key provisions from a client’s property lease agreements. This approach is a great supplement to manually laborious processes, and a stand-alone device in relation to certain standardized agreements and will mitigate risk from human errors and inconsistencies. SVW is happy to continue the collaboration with RAVN to further improve the SVW real estate robot.

    Our 'contract robot' can now finish in less than two seconds work which would have taken a team of people 100 days to complete.

    RAVN were very good at adapting a technical product and speaking about it in a non-technical way. We explained the problems we were facing and they offered a solution and explained it in an easy-to-understand and user friendly way.

Get more from your documents and unstructured data

Too much time is spent and too many opportunities are lost due not having relevant information to hand. You need the right information, at the right time, in the right place. The era of simply searching for and finding documents has passed, you need to be able to extract and distil the information held from within documents. This is where RAVN’s Applied Cognitive Engine (RAVN ACE) comes in.

Evolution Cognitive Computing Technology

What is RAVN ACE?

Once you’ve found the documents you’ve been searching for you need to retrieve specific information from those documents and unstructured data. ACE allows you to take the next leap in information retrieval – Instead of manually having to sift through all of the information, RAVN ACE can do it automatically. ACE uses artificial intelligence to automatically read, extract and summarise information held within documents. Just like humans do but much faster and more accurately. It leaves you to focus on interpreting the output.
RAVN ACE is either hosted or on-premise and allows you to handle more data, more complex tasks and larger cases in less time.

Why do I need RAVN ACE?

Organisations are facing a rise in unstructured data and according to IDC the volume of corporate held data will be 44 ZB by 2020. This unstoppable growth is causing several problems for organisations:

  • Finding the relevant information and culling out the irrelevant data
  • Deviating from policies regarding data retention and data loss prevention
  • Lack of time and resource to interpret mountains of documents
  • Lost opportunities due to lack of relevant information
