LICENTIX came to us with an idea of developing a new peer-to-peer plaform for selling and licensing patent rights. The vision was a complex system with multiple functions, combined with an intuitive and unique design. Moreover, flows and communication between users, and between the platform and other patent right databases was to be fully automated.
LICENTIX is a marketplace for selling and licensing patent rights, and they continuously work towards making it easy for patent rights holders to make a profit.
Due to the high complexity and the demands for a user-friendly interface, we suggested using Drupal CMS as a back-end platform for the web development. Drupal is the most flexible back-end system on the market, and thus makes it possible to easily and continuously incorporate the advanced functions desired by LICENTIX – hereunder differing statistics tools etc. – as the needs arrive going forward.
The result was a beautifully designed, flexible and highly effective SAAS platform (Software as a Service). The System automatically communicates with other patent databases, which makes it easy for users to administer their own patents and search for others worldwide. The webpage is optimized so that both sales and licensing can be achieved by a few clicks, and the design has been created with a focus on intuitive navigation, to make the platform accessible and easy for everyone.
LICENTIX was planned and developed from scratch by ChinaSoft. The following methodologies were applied in developing this project over the course of 6 months.
