FREMONT, Calif., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lecorpio, the leader in cloud-based Intellectual Property (IP) management and analytics, today announced general availability of version 2.7. This new version extends the existing Lecorpio Software as a Service (SaaS) platform — used by 13 of the 100 most active patent-filing organizations in the U.S. — and deepens the analytics engine that helps customers elevate their IP programs.
Lecorpio was the first purpose-built workflow solution for IP management; this new release raises the bar for enterprise-class, mission critical features such as high availability, performance throughput and security. Designed for organizations who demand 24/7 access and assurance that their assets and data will always be protected, Lecorpio 2.7 offers:
- High availability deployment and 99.95% uptime;
- Comprehensive business continuity planning via offsite disaster recovery and data back-up;
- Elastic cloud infrastructure to support growth;
- Browser agnostic with full support for major browsers on computers, tablets and mobile devices including Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox;
- Re-defined user experience providing a 117% increase in performance and a 3x increase in throughput;
- Strong asset data protection via Transparent Data Encryption (TDE); and
- High grade security and export readiness via IP black-listing and intrusion detection services.
Given that today's IP organizations are complex and involve numerous internal and external stakeholders, clean data is always a top priority. Lecorpio 2.7 increases data integrity with complete United States Patent and Trademark Office Public and Private Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) integration for easy error checking, data cascading to easily replicate changes to the entire workflow, and configurable, end-to-end data validation to prevent entry errors.
"For the world's most innovative companies, the IP supply chain is mission critical, which means our solution needs to deliver bullet-proof reliability, security and data integrity," said Lecorpio CEO Jay Madsen. "What's more, with over 500,000+ end-users accessing our system, it's imperative that we provide a compelling user experience — one that simplifies work and accelerates throughput."
Lecorpio 2.7 also delivers enhanced visual analytics, including heat maps and family tree mapping, providing users with new insights into how to manage IP workflow and the entire IP portfolio. Heat maps provide a graphical look at the data and performance against corporate goals, giving customers the ability to optimize their entire IP supply chain. The family tree feature provides a visual presentation of all related matters and their relationships as well as easy navigation to explore each matter in further detail. When combined with IP dashboard access to over 160 key performance indicators (KPIs), Lecorpio 2.7 delivers timely insight that drives better business decisions.
"As organizations seek to improve the efficiency of their IP operations, the ability to access real-time metrics and KPIs is a key functional requirement," said Ralph Schroeder, Managing Director, Hyperion Research. "Lecorpio's new 2.7 version provides advanced capabilities to monitor processes and work activities across the entire IPM lifecycle, presenting information in easy to use dashboards and graphical reports."
