Automated Document
Computer-guided selection of correct docketing procedures

Computer-guided selection of correct docketing procedures

Conventional docketing is done by a docketer who selects a docket action/template from a library of hundreds of options, 99% of which do not apply.  With our platform, we limit the options available to as few as possible, based on our AI algorithms, greatly increasing the likelihood the correct action/template is chosen.

Independent, automated verification system

The highest quality is always achieved by emphasizing doing it right the first time.  Thorough verification, however, can dramatically raise the quality.  Our automated verification system includes thousands of rules to verify docketing is done correctly, and if it isn’t sure it is correct, one of our experts completes the review process.
