Rethinking repapering with artificial intelligence

An artificial intelligence-powered platform for tackling repapering? Distilled into its most basic form, repapering is defined as a large remediation of documentation that involves risk assessing, amending, and migrating contracts — often employed by financial service institutions and insurance companies. Further, this process aids in contingency planning or relocation. For companies operating on the global stage, repapering is an inescapable reality that businesses must adapt to.

A recent example that highlights the necessity of an effective repapering platform involves Brexit, in which a no-deal Brexit meant that (without the correct paperwork) UK companies could no longer be allowed to provides goods and services to EU27. Another example is LIBOR, the benchmark set to expire in 2021, which is embedded into almost all financial contracts with a variable interest rate component.


The obstacles of repapering

Due to the immense undertaking that repaper characteristically entails, conducting this process manually is extremely labour, resource and time-intensive. One of the most difficult aspects of this is the coordination and cooperation of finance, legal, and operations teams who are tasked to discover and assess relevant contracts and clauses. Couple this with a high likelihood for human error, and manual repapering is less than ideal.


Another underappreciated issue brought about by manual repapering is that the process is growing increasingly complex. In turn, the human element of repapering scales poorly in comparison to increasing demands and a sometimes seemingly endless workload. Although some legal teams can attempt to manually manage repapering through sampling, it adds needless and expensive risk that can be mitigated by simply using a repapering platform.
