In a nutshell

It is a trade secret asset management system

Why it is needed

Trade secrets are arguably the most important type of IP, yet for many companies they are not recorded or tracked. This can be disastrous, for example when trade secret theft occurs. Companies may be required to provide information about their trade secrets for investment rounds and mergers and acquistions. For larger organisations there can be tax implications with trade secrets.
