As of today, Tangibly is releasing improved workflow features within the Tangibly application regarding Partner access, capabilities, and interactions.
Let’s take a quick look at these improvements…
Partnership workflow – Assets can be added by 3rd party organizations and are clearly labeled as such.
Deactivating a Partner sends a notice to the Partner, and removes their access. The partner is instructed by email to delete any materials in their possession in accordance with their agreements.
The Partner is Notified by Email. Here’s what the partner sees:
Metadata is preserved. If a partner is deactivated or any files removed from Tangibly, the metadata and record of access is preserved.
In Case You Missed It
In older news worth mentioning: Did you notice we’ve added roles to user management? This feature assists managers of departments, HR and admins by assigning access to trade secrets in a more uniform way. Departments managers are responsible for the IP of their own departments. HR should have access to all the agreements but not to all of the assets in within the company.
Did you hear about Patent X-Ray™?
We developed Patent X-Ray because we recognized that AI can help identify trade secrets around patents that may or may not be disclosed within patent filings (algorithms, exact temperatures, exact quantities, etc). While making the effort to protect IP by applying for patents, there are “open holes” – where inventors are the ones who know these details, and if they leave the company they take this information with them.
The user simply inputs a patent number to start the process. Patent X-Ray produces descriptions of potential trade secrets, predicted based on Tangibly’s proprietary algorithm. The user can edit or accept the suggestions and then automatically add them to the compliance and management workflow on Tangibly’s platform.
Tangibly assigns the inventors as contributors. Doing that will send automatic acknowledgment notification which closes the loop and tightens the protection.
