Silicon Valley’s cloud-based legal tech pioneers IPfolio and SimpleLegal integrate their offerings to improve process efficiency for corporate Legal and IP groups.
BERKELEY, Calif., October 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — IPfolio Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based Intellectual Property Management Software, and SimpleLegal, a leading provider of modern legal operations software for in-house legal departments, today announced the availability of an integration between the two solutions to unify the process of managing outside counsel relations for corporate IP groups.
The integration connects previously disparate systems and processes for managing a company’s IP portfolio and corporate legal/eBilling records, allowing for better spend tracking and financial control throughout the IP lifecycle.
A direct and secure connection between IPfolio’s Portfolio Manager and SimpleLegal’s eBilling and Matter Management system allows corporate IP teams to focus their energy on the pursuit and strategic management of high-value patents and trademarks by automating key operational aspects of IP prosecution, such as managing law firm budgets, tracking spend, and approving invoices.
“SimpleLegal is a great partner, and both our products appeal to a very similar audience of forward-looking, fast-growing companies. This integration eliminates duplicate data entry, reduces errors, and allows our joint and future customers to pick the very best-suited tools for each corporate process and have these tools talk to each other behind the scenes,” says Rupert Mayer, founder and CEO of IPfolio.
“We’re excited to partner with IPfolio because we share a common philosophy of streamlining the user experience with modern software. By integrating with IPfolio, we streamline the task of managing patent and trademark matters,” said Nathan Wenzel, CEO and co-founder of SimpleLegal. “The best part of this integration is that it came about organically from customer demand.”
The first version of the integration is available immediately to joint customers of both companies.
