Hello there, and welcome to what makes DocuChat tick!

This manifesto is our handshake—an honest, straightforward conversation about the purpose and promise of DocuChat. It's crafted to give you insight into not just the functionalities of the product, but the vision, the motivations, and the aspirations behind it.

Consider this a personal note from us, outlining the challenges we saw that made us want to create this solution. In these words, you'll find what that led us to build DocuChat and and values we hold dear while shaping it.

Problem and Solution

  • The problem is that, in an age where information overload meets the demand for instant gratification, businesses and individuals struggle to manage and retrieve knowledge efficiently. DocuChat solves this by transforming static documents and web content into dynamic, interactive chatbot experiences.
  • So we offer DocuChat to redefine the way information is consumed and shared, making it as simple as asking a question and getting an immediate, accurate answer. We aim to make knowledge accessible and actionable for everyone, everywhere.

Core Values

  • Utility Over Hype: We're committed to harnessing the power of AI to create tangible benefits for our customers, sidestepping the hype to deliver real-world solutions.
  • Design Excellence: With a design-first approach, we prioritize simplicity and elegance. We want to ensure that every interaction with DocuChat is intuitive and pleasurable.
  • Compliance by Design: As ex-lawyers, we understand the importance of compliance, especially in the EU where data protection is paramount. We've built DocuChat from the ground up with privacy and compliance in mind, ensuring that our users can trust their data is handled with the utmost care and in accordance with the latest regulations.

Roadmap

We will update this section regularly to keep you informed about what's coming next. Though you should know that we're always listening to our customers and we're constantly iterating based on their feedback.

Here's what we're working on next (in no particular order):

  • (Done) Revamping our information retrieval system to use "hybrid search" for better analysis of documents and hence better answers.
  • Integrating EU-based AI models via Azure OpenAI and other open source models such as Mixtral and Llama2.
  • Ability to analyze and retrieve images from documents in addition to text.
  • Managing multiple teams and departments from a single account.
  • Better analytics and reporting.
  • Advanced PDF and table parsing for better answers.
  • More document types and sources, including Google Drive, Notion, and more.
  • More integrations with third-party services, including Slack and Microsoft Teams.

We're a small team, but we're passionate about what we do and we're committed to making DocuChat the best it can be. Thanks for joining us on this journey!
