In as little as 20 minutes this tool provides SMEs with a quick and easy way to analyse their intellectual property (IP), determine how it impacts their business and obtain information on where they can go for assistance. SMEs respond to a questionnaire to help evaluate their IP assets in terms of protection - this allows them to identify their strengths, weaknesses and gain clarity on where they need to direct their focus.
Using a decision tree technique, IP Scan Online Tool guides SMEs through the evaluation process, so they can focus on the most relevant aspects of IP protection.
Moreover, the tool may unearth potential areas of IP protection that they hadn't considered before and emphasise the importance of protecting their IP assets.
It is important to remember that the use of this self-assessment tool does not replace the use of an IP Scan conducted by an expert or the consultation of an IP lawyer.
