The companys platform is designed to aid business entities, mostly banks, developers or contractors, which operate in construction finance in digitizing and viewing documents.

The technology provided by Rabbet employs machine learning so that key information is automatically found and extracted from documents in a format, which allows for an easier examination by the parties involved.

“We firmly believe construction finance is going to be automated and brought out of its decades-old, paper-ridden process,” David Bell, managing director of Goldman Sachs’ construction group, was quoted as saying by Reuters.

“Rabbet is the only solution we’ve seen that can handle the complexity of this transition,” Bell added.
