Friday, September 04, 2009

Annandale, VA -- Emantix, an enterprise productivity software company, today announced that David Ian Forbes, Emantix founder and CEO, has been awarded United States Patent #7,584,161, titled "Software System for Managing Information in Context."

The new patent relates to a method for contextual interaction with information. A key innovation in the patent is the complete reinvention of traditional software interfaces and tool sets to deliver better user interaction and interface usability. The system also provides novel methods for structuring and searching metadata, text and digital media.

"This patent reinforces my ongoing commitment to honest and useful innovation, looking at things in non-traditional but commercially viable ways," stated Mr. Forbes, the primary inventor on the patent. "Certainly, this patent yields benefits from the ideas protected, but perhaps of even greater value are the lessons learned in successfully bringing a disruptive technology to market."

The system described in the patent is commercially available today. Mr. Forbes is also primary inventor on two additional patents pending, both related to the Emantix software platform.
