Latest Patent Continues IQNavigator’s Long History of Innovation and Industry Firsts


This patent aligns well with our overall technology objective to continue to lead the industry with innovation and focus on our customers now and moving forward.

IQNavigator, the leading independent provider of non-employee workforce management solutions, today announced the issuance of US Patent No. 9,020,884 B2, a method to manage and transfer consultant re-seller business information. The patent entitled, "Method of and System for Consultant Re-Seller Business Information Transfer,” was issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on April 28.

Purchasers of project work-related services often encounter business challenges that are not within their core competencies. As a result, they often resort to outsourcing the project work, but the outsourcing does not guarantee that the buyer's business environment will be optimized to adequately manage the specific project work at hand. This patent allows IQNavigator to provide a business solution in a tangible, standardized format that transfers and integrates into a buyer's project work management system – eliminating the need for complex and time-consuming manual configurations or customizations.

“We went through a lengthy process to gain legal protection for this unique capability,” said Sherri Hammons, Chief Technology Officer, IQNavigator. “Our unique approach makes automation much more seamless and user-friendly, which ultimately results in a better overall customer experience. This patent aligns well with our overall technology objective to continue to lead the industry with innovation and focus on our customers now and moving forward.”

IQNavigator has been awarded a total of 16 patents to-date. This patent is the latest milestone in the company’s long history of innovation that started when it pioneered the market more than 15 years ago. IQNavigator’s long list of industry firsts includes the VMS market’s first mobile smartphone apps, the first advanced analytic job matching solution, the consolidated multi-sourced talent pool solution, first integration portal, first achievement of SSAE 16 compliance, first data-driven lab for driving innovation and more.
