An integrated IP Management System has to connect all stakeholders in a company who are involved in IP management, giving them access to relevant information concerning own and third party IP rights. Ideally, different user groups should have the tools which allow them to immediately work with the information tailored to their individual needs - independent of where they are and within one single system, but with different user interfaces targeted at each individual group of users.
This presentation will provide real-life examples how the IP department can use a web-based software platform to reach out to its customers, suppliers and decision-makers within and outside the enterprise.
