Der Jagt said that although ASSAI solutions mainly target the oil and gas industries due to the urgent need for proper documentation and process management in the sectors, there were also a couple of other solutions for both the legal profession and other sectors that are directly linked with the oil and gas industries even as more industries would soon be covered by its solutions.
