Proudly Introducing Our Customers
Innovation happens everywhere – around the globe and across different types and sizes of organizations. IPfolio helps you in the process of creating and utilizing intellectual property, regardless of who you are, where you are, and how big or small you are.
Our customers are often innovation leaders in their respective industries, and they range from startups with just a few patents to multinationals with thousands of IP assets. Here is a cross-section that exemplifies the diversity of the global IPfolio user base:
Global Players like advanced textiles specialist Albany International Corp, Swedish natural beauty company Oriflame Cosmetics, and Norwegian deep-sea exploration firm Subsea 7 entrust their significant IP portfolios to our cloud-based solution.
R&D and IP teams in these multinationals are frequently spread across multiple locations around the globe, and they work with several law firms handling their IP prosecution. By keeping all IP information secure and up-to-date in one universally accessible location, IPfolio allows them to minimize administrative overhead, ensure consistent reporting, and facilitate global collaboration on IP matters.
Networking powerhouse Extreme Networks, Canadian motion systems pioneer D-BOX, and Conceptus, a medical devices company dedicated to advancing women’s health, are representatives of mid-sized IPfolio customers.
These companies typically have a small to mid-sized IP team in place at their headquarters that is tasked with supporting a number of global R&D sites. IPfolio provides a one-stop solution for connecting the various stakeholders involved in the IP process, including but not limited to the legal department, inventors, executive R&D management, and outside law firms.
Thriving young companies often come to us when they get serious about developing a robust IP strategy. To name just a few local ones, our customer list includes Silicon Valley startups Quixey, Smart Wire Grid, and Applied Research Works.
IPfolio provides a cost-effective entry to the sophisticated IP Management practices of the large and established corporations that these hungry upstarts are out to challenge.
Universities and Research Organizations
Dutch Utrecht Holdings and Spanish research foundation IK4 Tekniker belong to a particularly fast-growing market segment for IPfolio: as universities and research institutions ramp up their IP activities as well as the subsequent commercialization efforts, they need robust tools to support portfolio development as well as the transaction side.
These organizations tend to make heavy use of IPfolio’s built-in features for handling contracts and licenses. They also benefit particularly from the outstanding flexibility for tuning IPfolio to their particular workflows and for supporting specific legal requirements – for example, related to IP that originates from projects co-funded by industry or governments.
IP Consultancies and Innovation-Oriented IP Law Firms
Last but not least, we witness a global trend of law firms that strive to do more for their clients than just write, prosecute and litigate patents and trademarks. They take a holistic approach and provide support across the entire innovation process. Many carry the I-word in their name, such as Innovate LLP in Canada and Danubia Innovation in Hungary.
These firms use IPfolio to provide added value to their clients, engaging them in a collaborative process for managing their IP assets.
