IP Management Tools

Ongoing management and development of the IP portfolio eventually requires the support of IP management software.

There are many available tools of varying complexity and ease of use. Of course, the key is to have best-in-class IP management processes established and then to use a software tool that best complements your processes.

Prompts and reminders for key (prosecution) events, to reporting functionality showing how agreements relate to specific IP and collaborations etc, can enhance productivity and value in the IP portfolios.


I would not recommend building your own but choosing the right tool for you and your circumstances can be overwhelming. Independent expert advice and vendor selection can make the process much easier.
