How can I manage several projects or IP rights?
ip4manager has been created to manage up to several thousands projects in the same tool.
Choose your plan (by using the dedicated icon placed at the top of the screen or the menu item "Manage my plan" in the administration part), and adapt ip4manager to your needs!We have plans up to 5, 10, 50, 100 projects, and you can also have an unlimited account where you can create and manage as many projects and IP rights as you want.
After having chosen your plan, you can modify it at any time by simply using the same icon.
ip4manager allows you to interlink projects and IP rights.
You can therefore insert a "parent project" and obtain an overview of your rights and projects. For example, you can create a right for your trademark, and an other entry for the license contract concerning this trademark. Each will have its own entry, its own deadlines, and you will be able to set and follow-up budgets and upload or disseminate documents for each, separately. You can also grant access to your team members or to partners, and limit said access to one of the rights or projects only.
How can I share information and documents?
ip4manager allows you to create groups within your own organisation or with partners.
Create a group, and grant access to projects, IP rights, tasks and the related documents and budgets to members of this group only.First create a group, in the "Admin" part of left menu. You can choose the name of the group, without limitation.Then invite participants, by using the "manage users" part of the "Admin" menu. After having selected the level of access you decide to grant (viewing only, or editing, even administrating ip4manager with you), just fill in the email of the person you want to invite. Upon clic on the button "send" they will receive an email containing their invitation to join the group you have created. After having created their account, they will be able to access the projects, IP rights, tasks, documents and/or budgets linked to this group.
Control access to your information
You can attribute each project, IP right or tasks to one group. Only members of this group will be allowed to see it and to access it. Documents and budgets related to this project, IP right or tasks are available to the same person(s) only.
You can invite participants or team members, but you can also delete any access right you have granted, whenever you want.You have full control over information you decide to share, and over the persons having access to your information!
