IP Rights (IPR) Management

The investment made to gain protection for your ideas and innovation is significant. Once those rights are in place it is essential to properly manage them to ensure protection, remain competitive and identify new monetization opportunities.

This requires the ability to search across information sources including your IP, financial and document management systems, as well as external databases. NovumIP search offers:

  • Full meta-data search
  • Fuzzy and synonym search to find relevant documents
  • A preview of the context around the result to aid selecting the correct documents to download or attach to the correct records
  • Ability to search external document stores such as an on-line patent office for missing information, documents or even competitor filings
  • A tool to support your agents and help them be more efficient

Serving as your main interface into all systems within and outside your IP department’s ecosystem and coupled with powerful search, you gain unprecedented access to information and tools that enable better management of your IP rights, development of offensive and defensive strategies, identification of new revenue streams and an overall greater understanding of the power of your portfolio.
