Thomson IP Manager 3.0® Revolutionizes Intellectual Property Collaboration with Exclusive Advanced Technology



New release of intellectual asset management software empowers organizations to design tailored IP processes and drive collaboration across all stages of innovation

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Oct. 22 /- Thomson IP Management Services, a part of Thomson Reuters, today announced the release of Thomson IP Manager 3.0, a ground-breaking, enterprise-scale software solution for managing patents, trademarks, invention disclosures and licensing agreements. Both internal and external stakeholders are united on a common, secure platform to speed decision making, improve productivity, and ensure ongoing protection of critical intellectual property assets throughout the product lifecycle.

An exclusive, patent-pending technology, the Process Architect(TM), allows an organization to define and implement structured processes tailored to their unique intellectual property workflow. IP matters move seamlessly from specialist to specialist via a Collaboration Portal, ensuring stakeholder input and accelerating communication. And as a company's IP strategy evolves, the Process Architect provides unsurpassed flexibility by enabling workflows to be easily modified.

"Intellectual asset management has expanded beyond the legal department to now become the focal point of many organizations' business strategies," said Cynthia Murphy, vice president and general manager of Thomson IP Management Services. "With this transition, individuals throughout an enterprise are now engaged in the IP workflow, from product innovation through filing, prosecution, maintenance, commercialization and protection of IP assets," Murphy added. "Thomson IP Manager 3.0 reflects our ongoing commitment to deliver customer-focused solutions -- by enabling companies to align their IP strategy with their business strategy, get products to market faster, and capitalize on valuable IP investments."

The Thomson IP Manager 3.0 release also features several system enhancements including significantly faster performance, new form letter functionality, and new ways to associate files and images with case data. This release marks the debut of Thomson IP Manager in Europe, extending the company's IP management and payment service offerings there.
