A French SME is looking for partners for its turnkey patent portfolio management solution
Summary:
The French SME provides an innovative patent management solution to improve business strategies. With a crossed sources personalized dashboards system, Intellectual Property (IP) processes are made accessible for any stakeholder. The main goal is to enable saving time, forecasting costs and making earlier key decisions. The company is interested mainly in commercial agreement with technical assistance or joint venture agreement, license agreement is possible.
Description:
The French SME specializes in Intellectual Property (IP). Its multidisciplinary team of legal, technical and business fields offers a customized support in order to develop, protect and value technologies and know-how. The company allows any innovation stakeholders (project leaders, ceo, cfo, cso, coo...) and structures (start-ups, SMEs, clusters, venture capitals, European consortiums, ...) to improve and consolidate business strategies with IP.

As Intellectual Property can be a rather complex topic, the French SME has developed a solution for stakeholders to get more involved in the IP management and having a greater autonomy to make strategic decisions. This innovative turnkey dashboard solution for patent portfolio management is a way to centralize main information about several current portfolios that client/competitor/target may have. It is designed to clearly overview IP processes from request to grant such as file submission, status, payment of annuities, etc.

The company operates as an in-house partner that summarizes complex information into these dashboards and remains aware of relevant news to alert users. Dashboards relay essential information from at least 3 main IP data sources : patent databases, attorneys, and clients.

These documents are optimized to deliver the clearest information and to facilitate its reading and understanding. They can be used for :

- Company assets reports
- In-house strategic decisions
- Valuation operations (partnerships, fundraising, mergers and acquisitions, agreements, etc.).

It includes : summary status, schedule, inventory, expert memo and more.

Deliverables generated are fully flexible according to users´ purpose and able to suit any project. They can be requested for occasional study cases whenever needed or regularly sent for long-term support (every month, trimester...).

As a complete patent portfolio management solution, it features at least 2 different ways to deal with: (A)Audit and (B)Monitoring that both pertain to whether holders, competitors or targets.

A - Audits rely on patent portfolios examination; they turn out to be useful for many operations such as fundraising, contract negotiation (licensing, merger/acquisition), Free To Operate ( FTO) preface (claims study and strategic position), legal status reviews, etc.

B- Monitoring is an active continuous control/tracking of a whole IP environment and technological watch; it includes reports, upcoming actions agenda, experts´ feedback, legal status revising alerts, analysis of evolution of patent claims, etc.

The company is interested mainly in Commercial agreement with technical assistance or Joint venture agreement to better adapt the platform to local regulations or habits.
A license agreement is possible where the platform can be used as is.
Advantages and Innovations:

EASE OF USE - It doesn´t require any special IP skills to handle it. The documents are optimized to be understood by everyone through a clear and readable information; also, only one patent number is required to create a whole patent family and to get started the monitoring with the experts

ON REQUEST DELIVERY - Support provided closely meets needs, goals and resources of the client; the solution operates as well as an occasional or regular report with the same accuracy. Dashboard´s settings are fully flexible and optimized to deliver the most targeted information for internal and external distribution.
