Graz, Austria and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
Intellectual property (IP) management software provider Unycom (http://www.unycom.com) has spun off its nascent IPfolio business unit as an independent venture. Led by former Unycom executive Rupert Mayer, IPfolio Corporation will operate globally out of Berkeley, California while Unycom continues to operate from its office in San Francisco, California as well as from the company’s European locations.
Operating separately allows both companies to compete more effectively, show more flexibility to market requirements and to sharpen their business strategy. This will also result in greater transparency for current and prospective customers as the separation enables Unycom and IPfolio to better provide their alternative solutions to the market.
Unycom continues to offer its mature IP software solutions for both industry and law firms, integrating all stakeholders into the process of generating, managing and extracting value from intellectual property. IPfolio targets the needs of organizations that outsource their prosecution work to law firms and need a convenient way to internally manage – and improve visibility into – their IP portfolio. CEO Rupert Mayer describes IPfolio as “a new breed of IP portfolio management offering delivered as software-as-a-service that is easy to implement, reasonably priced, and minimizes the burden of data entry that has often hindered adoption of traditional legal software.”
“Building upon years of experience serving some of the world’s largest and most demanding IP holders with Unycom, we are excited to deliver a tool that will help organizations with small-to-medium-sized IP portfolios improve the efficiency and ROI of their IP operations,” Mayer adds.
Unycom, founded in 2000 as a software company dedicated to the field of intellectual property (IP) management, has provided enterprise software solutions to some of the world's largest and most innovative businesses. The company benefits from its industry perspective and understands IP as an enterprise resource that has to be actively managed and aligned with corporate strategy. Unycom software follows a strategic approach on IP management, seamlessly integrating into existing IT landscapes. The company is headquartered in Graz, Austria with offices in Munich, Germany and San Francisco, CA.
Headquartered in Berkeley, CA, IPfolio Corporation taps 15 years of experience in software development and intellectual property (IP) management to deliver fresh and simple solutions to today’s information and IP management challenges. Its first product offering, IPfolio is an accessible and lightweight IP Management system that enables easy organization and management of IP portfolios through the entire IP lifecycle.
