Lately, intellectual property innovation have become priorities for many parts of an organization – from the CEO to R&D. In the past, many Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) systems were designed for patent and trademark administrative staff, but Anaqua, a provider of AIM software and services, now offers a platform for all categories of IP stakeholders.
I recently sat down with Anaqua Inc.’s Chairman and CEO Priya Iyer, who explained, “By creating dedicated, user-configurable work environments for different users, including purpose-built mobile apps and ‘content-aware’ Document Workspaces we’ve entered a new phase of IAM. Companies are able to capture innovation earlier, maximize the IP value chain for their business and become highly competitive.”
Key ANAQUA8 features include:
- ANAQUA Anywhere includes purpose-built mobile apps to deliver information to users of Apple and Google Android phones and tablets as well as the existing ability to access the ANAQUA applications from any major browser.
- ANAQUA Workspaces provide user-configurable work environments for different users: a matter-centric workspace for docketers, a document-centric workspace for attorneys, collaborative workspaces for outside counsel, and project workspaces for R&D and business users.
- Intelligent IP Document Management. A new “content-aware” Document Workspace supports document creation and upload with versioning, workflows and full text search, independent of but linkable to any IP matter.
- New Dynamic User Interface. ANAQUA8 uses industry-standard HTML5 technology to deliver a graphical, information-rich, multi-device experience that can be tailored to each user’s needs.
“There are tools that enable teams to start with a product-first or document-centric view for IP strategy and planning. ANAQUA8 also brings a new level of connectivity and collaboration by introducing purpose-built mobile apps to deliver key information and status, anytime, anywhere,” she continued.
