Make your workflow work

 

By ignoring and/or undervaluing IP, businesses can be driven into risky situations; such as opening up your company to infringement proceedings which could result in further loss of profits and harm your long-term corporate survivability, or the possibility of competitors taking advantage of your own technological innovations.

IP Knowledge Management processes help to avoid or mitigate these challenges by providing a system to monitor the IP landscape and direct relevant documents between departmental experts in a configurable manner that suits a range of scenarios. Pat-KM used together with a searchable patent database like PatBase provides access to global patent data with integrated workflows for the monitoring, classification and dissemination of relevant records. As a Knowledge Management system, it represents an evolution away from the usual one-size-fits-all solution towards a more bespoke approach that can adapt and change based on client needs and feedback to changing scenarios.
