It is Friday afternoon, and like many Fridays, there is a stick of vendor forms awaiting completion. Like usual, there are a handful (this time five) different forms, with many of the same questions requiring a lot of excessive typing.
This was the first time we were asked to complete such extensive documentation since starting this company, and it was going to be the first time I truly got to eat our own dog food.
Our internal instance already had great source documentation, including:
- Vendor information like legal name, address, and wire details was all exported from Mercury, our bank
- Security documentation like our Business Continuity Plan and Disaster Recovery Plan were synced from Drata via our integration
- Product information like feature descriptions were uploaded from previously used proposals
With all of that knowledge, it was off to the races: time to upload the documentation to begin answering the questions.
Like usual, each document was formatted differently— PDFs, Word Docs, and CSVs, oh my!
No challenge for IRIS: our powerful LLMs extracted questions from the documents with ease, simplifying the setup process.
Now IRIS is drafting answers to each question, showing sources and assigning questions for review... all while I am writing a blog post about how awesome AI is.
