Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
IPfolio, a spin-off of European IP management solutions provider Unycom, has established itself as an independent company based in Berkeley, CA. It is launching a cloud-based, software-as-a-service product designed specifically to meet the needs of organizations with small to mid-sized intellectual property portfolios. IPfolio is being officially unveiled through the launch of its new website, http://www.ipfolio.com and the company’s exhibition at the IP Counsel Café on April 18th and 19th 2012 in Palo Alto, CA.
Drawing on over 15 years experience in software development and intellectual property management, IPfolio has been built on the combined experience, expertise and feedback from enterprises of all sizes and industries. In developing IPfolio, company founder and CEO Rupert Mayer focused on the unmet need for a tool to organize all IP-related information, including patents, trademarks, copyrights and contracts in one easily accessible and collaborative platform.
“Despite all of the existing IP Management software options available, an amazing number of organizations, from startups to research labs, have trouble organizing all of information related to their IP departments in one place and then keeping that information current,” Mayer says. “Spreadsheets have been a stop gap solution for many but they’re not designed for the collaborative nature of IP Management, nor do they provide meaningful context for reporting or decision making. IPfolio fills the gap.”
The IP Counsel Cafe provides a timely opportunity to launch IPfolio, as it attracts a large number of intellectual property professionals from a broad spectrum of large innovative enterprises, tech transfer offices, and growing start-ups concentrated in the Silicon Valley area. At the conference IPfolio will demonstrate how its customizable software platform supports IP departments in three core areas: reducing administrative burden, improving the visibility of IP portfolios and aligning IP decisions with an organization’s overall business strategy.
