The Driving Force Behind
Symphony’s Impeccable Performance
At its core, Symphony operates according to a highly-structured set of global intellectual property rules and workflows. These rules, developed by a sophisticated, attorney-led law team, are updated regularly and cover global statutory intellectual property procedures for each jurisdiction and matter type.
The team’s primary responsibility is to regularly monitor jurisdiction law changes around the globe, to ensure each matter type and deadline is calculated correctly and accurately. We monitor industry publications and PTOs, and confer with our global network of agents in over 200 jurisdictions to ensure that the rules accurately reflect the statutory deadlines for each jurisdiction.
These rules allow for automatic creation of events available in the attorney docket based on the content in the asset record. Our rules workflows also allow for smart reminders, where additional 2nd and 3rd month reminders do not appear on the docket until the 1st reminder is past, keeping the docket clean and reducing the need for de-docketing reminders when you complete the event early.
Unlike many IP management systems, we load our rule updates into a QA test environment at no additional charge, so that you can review the rules and add any changes before you publish them to your production instance. Furthermore, our rules are extremely transparent, reportable, and flexible, allowing you to append or modify them as needed in order to meet your and your agent’s needs
