IPfolio has made available the latest release of its product, version 2.3, and continues on its growth trajectory with new customers across a broad range of company sizes, industries, and different types of organizations looking for a better way to manage their intellectual property.
BERKELEY, Calif., /PRNewswire-iReach/ July 24, 2013 – IPfolio Corporation, the provider of next-generation intellectual property (IP) management software, has made its latest product version available with a number of exciting new features. Highlights of the current release include an interactive World Map that allows visualizing global IP portfolios, enhanced document handling features, and a configuration that allows IP consultants and law firms to give their clients online access to their respective portfolios.
Rupert Mayer, founder and CEO of IPfolio, explains the key drivers behind product development at the company: „As we have been talking to increasingly larger prospects in the past few months, enterprise-grade features like IP budget management and robust workflows have been high on our agenda. At the same time, our existing customers are a great source of ideas for fine-tuning the user experience ever further on existing features. 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 the past quarter, new customers playing in technology fields as diverse as wireless technology, payment processing, precision measurement, computer hardware, oil & gas, and healthcare, as well as colleges and universities, have adopted IPfolio as the user-friendly, flexible and powerful tool for managing their growing IP portfolios. 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.
„Building this company has been a fascinating journey in the 7 months since I joined,“ said Susan Prohofsky Krelitz, Director of Business Development. „It is immensely rewarding and simply a lot of fun to be selling a product that makes its users really happy, and to witness this happiness every day when working with customers.“
