We have made a significant transition from a situation in which we were using multiple IP systems and procedures. Now the ANAQUA system is helping us implement common best practices for our IP management across the entire company.
After a thorough review of the potential suppliers, we conducted an in-depth evaluation of Anaqua's ability to meet our current and future needs. We have been very impressed with both the Anaqua product and its people and look forward to a long partnership.
One key benefit of Anaqua is the Users Group which has been formed. Talking to top-class IP owners about the system at User Group meetings and also the processes and procedures each company uses to manage its Intellectual Property rights is tantamount to bench-marking with the best.
By integrating patent and portfolio management data in ANAQUA, the businesses are much better served with increased visibility of real-time portfolio information, efficiencies in portfolio reviews, and more accurate forecasting capability.
ANAQUA is accessible to everyone, from attorneys to inventors. We're able to configure the system to provide a rules-based environment for the inventors so they have a keen understanding of what we're looking for and what ultimately maps to our core goals. ANAQUA takes the guess work out of the equation for our inventors, streamlining the process so we end up with inventions that result in patents.
Anaqua is the best data management system I've ever used. The applications are endless - it's not just for docketing.
Innovation and IP continues to be a major priority for Honda. As we move to a new phase of innovation leadership, it is critical we establish a platform to support our vision. After a thorough review of the alternatives, we are very pleased to select Anaqua to provide a collaborative solution most suitable for our global IP activities.
We realized that our current in-house IP systems could not sustain the continued growth in our patent portfolio. We were pleased to find a commercial application, ANAQUA, which can deliver the automation we need as well as the tools to actively manage our portfolio and provide management reports.
We needed a system that would allow us to access and analyze our portfolio more easily and at the same time support close collaboration with our law firms. We looked at several tools in the marketplace and were very impressed with Anaqua's potential to support collaboration with the wider community involved in our global trademark activity. The implementation of the system went smoothly even with our large portfolio.
Our success in increasing the pace and breadth of our innovation was the driving force for identifying a more efficient and integrated system for managing InterDigital's patent portfolio. We reviewed the different options in the marketplace and chose Anaqua. The new system will tie our invention and patent workflow processes together to provide a lifecycle record for each invention, allowing us to categorize our portfolio by any number of classifications and monitor related spending.
Our investors were unhappy with the inflexibility and lack of usability of the new system. For this and other reasons, we are very glad to move back to ANAQUA. We were also impressed with the fast implementation process. We are a small team and could not afford to dedicate significant resources to the effort. Anaqua was able to complete the whole project in six weeks, including data migration and training.
Prior to partnering with Anaqua, we didn't have the capability to readily see a comprehensive enterprise view of our intellectual assets, in particular, knowing the relative business and technical value of our assets. By ranking and categorizing assets across multiple categories to align them to our business goals...we are transforming from an individual unit based IP company to an integrated enterprise based company focused on generating and maintaining intellectual assets that will deliver significant competitive advantage.
We are a very forward-thinking firm always looking for new ways to add value to our advanced technology clients, so the ANAQUA system is a great fit for us. We can offer our clients new online services and use web-based collaboration with other service providers to offer exceptional value.
We wanted to move from our current in-house system to a new generation of patent management software. After a thorough evaluation we selected the ANAQUA IAM solution due to its superior ability to meet our primary objective of providing a user friendly and efficient workplace for professionals in our global patent organization.
With Innovation Centers in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, UK, India, Singapore and China and a portfolio of 25,000 patents, the challenge was huge. Despite this, I have never seen a more successful IT system implementation project. It is a tribute to the whole team - NXP, Anaqua...
A whole new world has been opened up to me and I really appreciate it. It's been something I've wanted - to be able to manage all of our IP portfolios globally in a central system.
Leading the ANAQUA IAM project has been an exciting foray into the IP space and created valuable opportunities to connect with R&D professionals in our businesses and help them pipeline their innovation streams into a common process.
Driving and managing the growth in innovation is a strategic thrust for Nielsen as we expand our capability to measure and report across new media formats, channels, and markets. After an extensive review, we concluded that Anaqua is the best-in-class IP management platform solution to help bolster our end-to-end IP business processes.
We wanted to bring our patent prosecution activity in-house to save costs and improve quality, and we also wanted the option of a hosted solution. We looked at the alternatives and selected Anaqua, and our team has been very impressed by the seamless and easy implementation process.
With our focus on innovation, we needed a system to enable our IP team to be highly efficient in handling the growth in inventions and patent filings. After extensive review, we selected ANAQUA Express. Anaqua's streamlined, best-practices implementation was also important in our decision.
Anaqua is taking us into the next generation of IP management with new levels of collaboration and productivity.
