Added functionality will streamline new invention flow and communication for integrated IP Portfolio Management
London, UK – 21 May, 2015 – FusionExperience, the cloud and big data solutions provider, has today announced the availability of a new ‘Inventor’s Portal’ that will further strengthen NovumIP, the first full end-to-end Intellectual Property (IP) Lifecycle Management application in the cloud.
NovumIP has enabled corporates to manage the complete IP Portfolio Management Lifecycle securely and in one place, without the need for multiple systems. With NovumIP’s new Inventor’s Portal, however, this functionality will be extended to inventors for the first time.
The cloud-based portal offers inventors the ability to track all processes in the patenting lifecycle in one place, with features that include:
The ability for inventors and co-inventors to submit an idea, along with all the associated details, drawings, and so on.
Advanced collaboration features that allow ideas to be discussed and refined into something that is unique, useable and profitable.
New workflow features, contained within a ‘Patent Board’, to control the company’s approval process, help with filing and/or to reserve rights.
Auto-generation of decision letters and other correspondence to ensure straight through processing.
The automation of interfaces to the docketing system for filing.
Joan Mill, Sales Manager for FusionExperience said; “Never before have the needs of inventors been so comprehensively addressed within a holistic IP Portfolio Management system. Corporates and Law Firms now have the ability to ensure that all of their IP is being managed as profitably as possible, whilst inventors can submit their ideas faster and easier than ever before.”
Steve Edkins, CEO of FusionExperience added: “It has always been FusionExperience’s strategy to build innovative solutions that solve real business problems. We identified IP Portfolio Management as an important corporate challenge that was not being sufficiently addressed. I am very proud of the innovation that our staff have shown with our new Inventor’s Portal and feel confident that it will make a real difference for our clients.”
