HighQ unveiling major product updates at HighQ Forum

HighQ will give details on its new AI Hub later this month, introducing a new offering that it anticipates will become the natural interface for multiple AI engines.

The announcement will come at HighQ Forum, London 2018, scheduled for Wednesday, 23 May at The Grange St. Paul’s Hotel. Stuart Barr, Chief Product & Strategy Officer, will showcase how the AI Hub allows HighQ’s own AI functionality and supported third-party AI engines to be integrated seamlessly into processes and workflows within the HighQ platform.

In the initial release, HighQ has integrated with Kira Systems so users can automatically push documents from HighQ into Kira for analysis. HighQ then stores the enriched data in the AI Hub, so you can access the data and visualise it graphically—displaying financial figures and fees, a breakdown of documents by class and language, or the document status.

This capability is ideal for automating and simplifying transaction-based processes like due diligence, large property deals, legal project management and so on.

“The AI Hub is part of a strategy that we’ve been articulating to our clients for quite a while. The idea is that you will plug in different AI engines such as Kira and use our common interface to push work to those engines and get it back,” said Stuart Barr. “It represents another significant advancement in our product as we attempt to simplify and improve the client experience and transform the delivery of legal services.”

HighQ Forum will also showcase other updates to its Collaborate and Publisher products. Collaborate 4.4 offers new Microsoft Office 365 integration with real time document editing using Office Online, powerful advancements to its data visualisation engine and more. Publisher 4.7 includes a People Directory that can be added to intranets and websites to help clients connect with legal talent or employees to find co-workers through a variety of criteria. It also adds the ability to push online forms data into Collaborate’s iSheets module, building an even tighter alignment between the products.

In addition, Collaborate 4.4 and Publisher 4.7 include tools and mechanisms that can be used to comply with various requirements of GDPR.
