Companies that leverage a centralized database for idea submissions, invention disclosures and patent committee approvals save time and generate better inventions. Wellspring intellectual property software streamlines your invention workflow, automates vital steps, and connects data from across the organization.
Wellspring's online disclosure tool seamlessly integrates with the docketing system to save time and effort. The system provides witnessing/approval functions for invention disclosures before reporting to the docketing administrator. Plue, each entry uploaded into the system gets an automatic date/time stamp.
Simply start with an existing template disclosure or customize your own. Once, launched, researchers and engineers login using their corporate account (no new passwords!) and complete the disclosure. Wellspring enables them to upload relevant, checks for required field and logical questions, and securely transmits the disclosure to your homepage for review and can email you a note that you’ve got a new invention. From your Wellspring homepage, you can review the disclosure and approve it with a click of a button. The disclosure automatically becomes a full invention record in your system and notifies the researcher that you’ve accepted their submission.
Each user can view the status of their invention disclosures. Designated supervisory personnel also can view the status of all the inventors in their organization. The attorneys and legal support staff can view the status of an invention disclosure. Invention disclosures are searchable by a variety of parameters to include the docket number, application number(s), publication number(s), titles, keywords, inventors, etc. Furthermore, the search function i can read PDF documents stored within the invention disclosure system and return these documents as a search result.
