An AppColl Tandem account is an effective and secure way for IP firms using AppColl PM Plus to provide clients with a controlled copy of their own IP portfolio information.



A Tandem account, available at no cost to AppColl PM Plus subscribers, provides a capable set of features that allows a client corporation to view and generate reports based on data that transferred automatically from their attorney’s AppColl account. The data that is transferred from the attorney’s account to the corporation’s account is completely controlled by the attorney and can be adjusted or stopped at any time.




A Tandem account provides the following features:

  • The ability to easily create and run reports on task, matters and contacts data, effectively creating a "shadow docket".
  • Basic data entry features to add and update tasks, matters and contacts.
  • Read-only access to information that has been synced from other AppColl accounts.
  • Unlimited logins.
  • Automatic syncing of data nightly from the attorney’s account to Tandem account.
  • A Tandem account can be instantly upgraded to an AppColl PM Plus account to provide more functionality when required.


Establishing a Tandem account for a corporation is simple. An attorney with an AppColl account prosecuting IP for a corporation sends an invite to the corporation from within AppColl. This invite email contains a link that allows the corporation quickly setup their account and establish a data connection from the attorney’s account.

One AppColl PM Plus account can send information to multiple different client accounts. One AppColl Tandem account can receive information from multiple IP firm PM Plus accounts.
