Users have grown used to us reacting quickly to their improvement requests, with development cycles as short as one month between minor releases. Last but not least, we pursue a strategic product roadmap, on which the guiding theme this year is collaboration.”

In much the same way, IP consulting firms on three continents have added value to their services by managing their clients’ IP assets using IPfolio.
