A lot of times portfolios become available and someone asks “should we consider adding this to our portfolio? Will this be valuable to us?” We can quickly and clearly understand what we have and where we are with and how strong it is. That turnaround speed is serving our business better than others who can't do that.

Track Budgeting and Cost

ANAQUA's flexible electronic invoicing provides a global, multi-currency legal e-billing system for outside counsel, agents and any other third party. Invoices for multiple matters can be uploaded securely and routed for approval. PTO and law firm charges can be automatically assigned to the relevant IP assets. A PDF version of the invoice can also be uploaded to the system.

For budgeting management, the system maintains costs for each task type for each supplier on a per country basis. Budgeted charges are pre-assigned to a matter and when invoices are received they can be matched with the charges for approval and payment. Invoice costs can also be tracked without prior budgeting.

ANAQUA's online invoicing system can operate standalone. It can also be integrated with other finance systems for invoice payment. In either mode, it dramatically reduces data entry and manual invoice processing for the IP department.

Manage Licenses and Royalties

ANAQUA's legal licensing management software is available as both a standalone solution and an integrated component of the platform. It provides a full lifecycle license agreement and contract management system that can be configured to your needs.

ANAQUA manages all types of legal contracts, including internal cross-licensing, in-licensing and out-licensing. Through a paperless management system ANAQUA captures contract terms, third parties, IP assets and financial terms as well as all documents and correspondence. All the IP assets are cross-linked so you can immediately identify the IP involved in a license or the agreement. Through a simple, secure portal, ANAQUA enables business users to make agreement requests using customizable online forms, and allows you to collaborate with outside counsel and business users during contract drafting, negotiation and and contract approval.

ANAQUA also helps you manage and track Royalties due from a Licensee or due a Licensor. Through defined financial terms, and license templates it allows you to create payment schedules and track collection amounts for each payment.
