Marina del Rey, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2007
TheBrain Technologies, the leading provider of visualization and dynamic mind mapping software, announced that VentureForward has deployed its award winning Enterprise Knowledge Platform (BrainEKP™) software to organize, visualize, and share complex sets of research, ideas and strategic innovation practices for internal patent management and collaboration with Fortune 1000 clients worldwide.
Using BrainEKP, TheBrain's Enterprise Knowledge Platform, VentureForward helps companies map out key internal knowledge to gain a competitive advantage. BrainEKP connects all related information from a wide variety of sources. Users are able to see how key ideas and all aspects of a product line fit together, as well as easily identify new avenues of innovation. BrainEKP's advanced search display and linking technology reduces time to market by enabling users to discover key connections that would be missed in standard search lists and folder directories.
"With the amount of information people are faced with, creating an environment where ideas and collaboration flourish is a challenge. Accumulated information can inadvertently contribute to confusion and overwhelm research teams, if the content isn't presented intuitively," said Sandy Ping, CEO of VentureForward. "With BrainEKP's intuitive user interface key relationships and ideas are instantly visible. Our Brain helps clarify and illuminate connections between products, market research and ideas, fostering new innovation."
The founders of VentureForward have been granted hundreds of patents during their many years of product development. These patents cover marketplace successes such as the Tide Buzz Ultrasonic Pen, Swiffer WetJet, and Cascade Action Packs. BrainEKP provides a complete knowledgebase of innovation and business processes, enabling easy updates and changes while being shared and accessed over the Web by geographically dispersed clients.
"VentureForward's top tier clients and proprietary innovation techniques make them an ideal customer and partner," said Shelley Hayduk, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for TheBrain Technologies. "VentureForward's BrainEKP provides a solution for organizations who need to evolve and capture the key business processes. Combining VentureForward's cutting edge methodologies with BrainEKP's advanced information delivery enables business teams to focus on ideas and simplify what would otherwise be a complex and often intangible process."
