CHALLENGES IP ORGANISATIONS FACE TODAY

CPA-Global_icon-suite_circle_RED_profitability

Volume of IP Assets

The massive amount of data and documents related to IP rights, make it hard for IP professionals to stay on top of their portfolios. Additionally, heavy workflows with lots of manual processes leave little time for strategic thinking and analysis.

"The portfolio is thousands of patents, so to do analytics is extremely time consuming and complex."

Corporate

Data for decision-making

The volume of work makes it difficult to maintain a holistic view of the portfolio. However, senior business leaders need actionable data at an overall level, which creates more manual data-pulling.

"They’re spending sometimes weeks or months pulling this data for budget planning and for decision-making."

Corporate

Disjointed lifecycle

It’s vital that different systems communicate to avoid difficult, disjointed moments in the lifecycle of managing IP as disjointed processes exacerbate challenges and add risk.

"Some days you can feel like you’re just logging into different software packages all day long to do the next job."

Corporate

Manual Processes

Manual processes are prone to errors and are a significant time and cost burden. Clawing back this time enables talent to flourish and focus on value-added work.

"The most difficult thing is the collection of documents because people are so moveable… it’s all manual."
