Corporate Invention Management
If your corporation provides bonus awards for inventors submitting disclosures and filing patents, AppColl® can automatically calculate the award amounts and feed that information, after approval, to your payroll department for processing. The payment calculation is flexible and supports award programs that divide a fixed amount across all inventors, with minimum and maximum payouts.
Different payouts for different inventor countries are supported. A lead inventor can be designated that receives additional awards if desired. Awards can be triggered at any point during a patent lifecycle, from the original disclosures of the idea through patent issuance. From their login, inventors can see awards they have received providing motivation for further idea generation.
Automated Inventor AwardsAppColl® can implement your existing inventor awards program. Auto-generate awards for disclosure submissions and approvals, patent filings, patent issuances and more. Notify inventors right away or require pre-approval first. Complex award programs are full supported
