Designed for self-serve productivity, the portal enables inventors to submit ideas, collaborate with co-inventors, and track status and awards without bothering the admin team.
Invention disclosure forms can be tailored to every business need and can be easily changed by the customer.
We prioritized usability so inventors can immediately begin using the Symphony Invention Disclosure portal on any desktop or mobile device with little training. Designed for self-service productivity, the portal enables inventors to submit ideas, collaborate with co-inventors, and track subsequent review, filing and awards milestones without wasting time submitting status requests. Submission forms are easily changed by either MaxVal or our customers to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs.
Symphony uses automated workflow management to ensure that invention disclosures are efficiently processed to facilitate review, approval and drafting. A host of features and tools simplify PRC scheduling, facilitate collaboration, organize comments and streamline ranking and voting. All materials, communications, notes and decisions are archived in a searchable database.
Symphony manages the entire awards process through a powerful, configurable, rule-based award management module that automates the most time-consuming and error-prone steps in the award process, and by tracking eligibility, milestones, status, and monies paid and due. Awards related to milestone completion, due dates, and amounts provide companies with great flexibility to reward personnel. Reward options based on invention submission, patent filing, PTO publication, grants, and other milestones can be tracked. Extensive reporting options enable companies to continually assess the effectiveness and ROI of their Invention awards program.
Most invention disclosure management systems were built 10 to 20 years ago by companies that did not or could not prioritize flexibility. While they may claim their systems are configurable, the reality with these systems is hard-coded workflows and restrictions. Customization is only attainable through expensive project work by their professional services team. Upgrades are even more onerous.
Symphony and the flexibility inherent in Salesforce’s advanced platform puts customization power in your hands. You can make changes to workflows, fields and other configurable areas. And when it comes to Symphony upgrades, Salesforce requires compatibility, so the process is relatively simple and easy.
