Legal automation technology is not new and has been around, in one form or another, for more than 20 years. In an industry known for its paper heavy manual processes, the benefits of document automation are particularly appealing.

Clarilis is a document automation system that saves lawyers a significant amount of time in producing the first draft of all forms of legal documentation.

Internet of Things devices are critical for growth and advancement in Agritech. Smart farming devices help to make farming more efficient, by monitoring climate conditions and powering data-driven smart farming. Israel and Canada bucked the trend by growing their robotics investment figures in 2019, but such is the dominance of the US and China in Robotics that overall investment plummeted from £9.1bn in 2018 to £7.1bn in 2019. Robotics endured an investment set-back in 2019 by overall global investment and number of deals completed, perhaps reflecting the old cliche that “hardware is hard”.

Organizations were forced to adopt new technologies overnight to survive, or risk becoming irrelevant.

In an increasingly cashless society, charities are feeling the pinch – reporting steady declines in cash donations as we continue to tap our way through train stations and coffee shops. To address this issue, we built a suit of contactless donation devices bespoke for the charity sector. Both of Clarilis’ founders are from Leamington Spa and it is a great place in terms of it being centrally located with easy access to the motorway network and with it being only just over an hour on the train to London.
