According to studies of the latest industry trends, intellectual property constitutes approximately three-quarters of a typical company’s assets.

Consequently, it becomes increasingly important for you to keep track of your IPs as well as to have procedures in place to manage intellectual property rights associated with these assets. Investors and creditors of companies also prefer to have a reliable mechanism to be informed about the scope of intellectual properties.
