The Dark Side of The Claims and Disputes that no one talks about

It’s Friday night, and you’re stuck at the office going through a pile of paperwork. The happy hour is calling your name, but you know you won’t be able to make it. The deadline for the claim is on Monday, and you can’t afford to make any mistakes.

As someone who has been in the claims and disputes industry for over 20 years, I know the struggles that come with the job. The long hours, the never-ending paperwork, and the constant pressure to meet deadlines can take a toll on even the most experienced among us.

One of the biggest challenges that we are facing is dealing with large volumes of data buried in emails and documents. You know the information is there, but finding it takes forever. And let’s face it, time is a luxury that we can’t afford.

When you boil it all down, success in construction claims is decided by evidence. But if you can’t find that evidence, you have no claim.

And that means all those work hours are wasted and a big check with 6 zeros is waving in slow-motion while it fades away from the company budget.

It’s like playing detective, except you’re not sure if the needle even exists. You’re about to embark on a wild goose chase that’ll cost you precious time, and potentially your claim.

What if I tell you that there is a tool that will help you to get your Sherlock Holmes on and solve claims like a pro? And all you need to do is – nothing. Sounds crazy, right?

Well, “crazy” is what we thought when we talked about how finding the right evidence to support your claim is still done the old-fashioned way.

What’s your claim to fame? Our is OCR AI technology.

Finding the right evidence is hard. You have to go through the piles of unstructured data from emails, drawings, schedules, and other project-related documents.

In the usual scenario, you will spend between 20-50 hours sifting through the documents, desperately trying to find buried evidence.

Luckily, we live in times where we can rely on technology for all the dull stuff, so we can focus on what matters, which is, winning your claim.

But it’s not just about finding information, it’s about the satisfaction of being able to solve the puzzle and catch the culprit. And with OCR technology, you can do just that – and become the cool guy who cracks the case and wins the day. So, who needs a fedora and a trench coat when you have OCR technology on your side?

OCR technology doesn’t just make your life easier; it also reduces the risk of human error. With 99.7% accuracy, you can rest assured that you won’t miss crucial information that could cost you the case.

Leave your competitors in the dust.

By the research of McKinsey & CO. one of the leaders of management and consulting, tech giants like Google and Baidu are currently in a fierce race to dominate the digital frontier, and they’re not holding back their bets. With the power of AI on their side, they’re throwing around an estimated $20-30 billion in 2016 alone.

It’s clear that AI is not just a buzzword, it’s the real deal – and these companies are willing to put their money where their algorithms are.

You don’t want to be left behind while the tech giants are winning the AI race, do you?

Companies like Google, Microsoft, and Amazon are investing billions of dollars in AI technology, while you’re still stuck with outdated manual processes. Don’t miss out on the game-changing benefits of AI, such as increased efficiency, accuracy, and productivity.

With Lupa’s OCR technology, you can quickly discover deep text buried in emails and documents, saving you hours of tedious work and reducing the risk of errors. Join the AI revolution and give your company a competitive edge.


Well, because the work is dull, time-consuming, and prone to human error. But someone has to do it.

Now you are wondering “If I only had the superpower to find the core evidence in seconds”

How to blow the competition all the way back to the 1990s?

When dealing with claims, finding the right evidence with e-discovery tools can be daunting. One of the leading problems of today’s data mining tools is that they cannot process or find the right piece of evidence.

With Lupa’s amazing 99,7% of OCR accuracy, you will automatically extract relevant information from scanned or digital documents. Reducing the time and effort required to review and analyze documents by 60x.

You can also extract data points and categorize documents quickly, making it easier to search for and access critical information.

Additionally, our OCR can be used for predicting and bulk coding to analyze patterns in documents and help identify relevant evidence at a click of a button.

What no one told you about e-discovery processes

According to recent studies, the average law firm deals with over 50,000 pages of documents for a single case. With each page containing vital information, it’s easy to miss important details in your data mining flow. With all this data, how can you possibly ensure you’re not missing important information in your e-discovery process?

We live in the digital age, where data is constantly being generated and stored in vast amounts. From emails to spreadsheets, from legal documents to cat videos, we have access to more information than we could ever consume in a lifetime.

And yet, when it comes to making sense of all this data, we often find ourselves drowning in a sea of unstructured information.

That’s where AI comes in. With its ability to quickly digest and analyze large volumes of unstructured data, AI can help us cut through the noise and find the information we need in a matter of minutes. With AI, we can transform the way we work, making us more efficient, effective, and, yes, even a little smarter.

When it comes to e-discovery tools, the market is as crowded as a courtroom on a Monday morning. There is a bunch of software on the market vying for your attention but mastering that software can feel like trying to read a contract written in Latin. And let’s face it, not all of us are Latin scholars.

Beyond Keywords: Why Conceptual Search is Essential for Effective E-Discovery

Lupa’s conceptual search is a game-changer in the e-discovery process. Rather than relying on keyword searches, which can be limited and miss important information, Lupa’s conceptual search uses natural language processing to understand the context of your search terms. This means that Lupa can analyze the meaning behind your search, including synonyms and related concepts, to deliver more accurate and relevant results.

Here’s how it works: when you input a search term into Lupa, it uses its advanced algorithms to analyze the context of the term and identify related concepts. It then searches through your data to find all documents that match the identified concepts, even if those documents don’t contain the exact search term you used.

The result?

Lupa delivers results that are more comprehensive and accurate, saving you valuable time and resources in your e-discovery process. And the best part?

I was stuck with design changes for 20 years before this happened

If you’ve been working with claims and disputes for as long as I did (20 years), you must remember your first “Nightmare project”. [1]

Yeah, that ONE project that made you flip the table. That ONE project that you poured your blood, sweat, and tears into, searching through all design changes that occurred so that you can find that one right piece of evidence to support your claim.

It wasn’t just about the project that was worth hundreds of millions, but my client’s reputation was at stake.

In my “nightmare project”, I was the underdog. Managing a construction project like that was like a fight between Rocky and Apollo Creed. I thought I was ready, but I got knocked down by a large table full of design changes that needed reviewing.

And the worst part of that scenario is, I had to do it all manually, because, at that time, it was an industry standard. [2]

Oh boy, countless working days and hours ahead of me, and I knew I was gonna get hit with drawing changes, scheduling delays, and budget overruns. But I had to keep fighting until I heard that final bell.

To make matters worse, the documents were scattered across multiple platforms and file types. I had to dig through emails, spreadsheets, and CAD drawings just to piece together the timeline of the project.[3]

I know the ins and outs of resolving disputes like this one, and the worst-case scenario is missing the critical evidence because the whole process is tedious. And, let’s face it, even the most experienced of us will miss the tiniest drawing change because we are not machines.

But what if…

That day, I had an epiphany. What if I could create AI-driven software that could help me with the tedious process of reviewing design changes? After years of hard work, Lupa was born.

And it wasn’t just any software – it is the only one on the market that offered a complete solution for claims and disputes in the construction industry. Everything you need, for your entire workflow, in one place. And the best part is that you don’t have to be a software genius to figure out the ropes.

One of the most impressive features of Lupa is its ability to automatically generate drawing registers and conduct bulk comparisons of entire drawing sets. This means that we no longer have to spend countless hours manually reviewing design changes and analytics.

Lupa’s AI-powered technology allows us to evaluate our design progress with confidence and accuracy, coordinate our subcontractors more efficiently, and allocate our time to more important tasks and business growth.

In my experience, disputes can cost companies more than 10% of the whole project price to evaluate the damage that has been done. But with Lupa, we can protect ourselves from change orders and surprise costs, and avoid costly mistakes that can lead to claims and disputes in the first place.

So, whether you’re a seasoned claim manager with decades of experience or a fresh-faced engineer just starting out, Lupa has everything you need to manage design changes like a pro.

Say goodbye to the old way of doing things and hello to the future of construction project management.
