Below is our recent interview with Clive Spenser, Marketing Director at LPA Ltd.:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: LPA is a small company based in the UK which specialises in developing applied rule-based Artificial Intelligence software tools and applications.
Q: Who is your ideal client and why?
A: The ideal customer has knowledge they want to automate either to increase the abilities of their own staff or allow their customers direct access to expertise on a self-service basis. The industry sectors we are drawn to include legal, medical and machine fault-finding.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: VisiRule is a simple drag and drop, point and click visual authoring tool which lets business users create their own expert charts which can then be used to guide operators and end-users through some complex problem solving process simply by answering a set of dynamically constructed questions.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: In the next 6 months we plan to extend and enhance our off-line delivery capabilities to reduce, or even remove, dependency at run-time on any web server. Client-side execution enables solutions to run offline in remote or controlled locations irrespective of any internet or phone connection is available. We also plan to increase the range of testing and automatic validation tools to enable authors to have confidence and trust in their systems and be able to demonstrate exactly what results will be reached in any situation.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: LPA software has been used by thousands of people in various applications.
Contract Express which was first implemented by LPA in the late 1990s, went on to be used by thousands of lawyers to automate document and contract creation.
The current team of LPA engineers behind VisiRule were heavily involved in the initial versions of DealBuilder which became Contract Express, and which was acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2015.Activate Social Media:
