We are very glad to move back to ANAQUA. We were also impressed with the fast implementation process. We are a small team and could not afford to dedicate significant resources to the effort. Anaqua was able to complete the whole project in six weeks.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 10, 2011
Anaqua, a leading provider of intellectual asset management software and services, and Jaguar Land Rover, the famous automotive company, have entered into a multi-year agreement for use of the ANAQUA Express IAM solution to manage its patents and ANAQUA Services for paying maintenance fees.
Jaguar Land Rover, headquartered in the UK and now a subsidiary of Tata Motors Ltd, was until 2008 a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company. As part of Ford, the company and its engineers were users of the ANAQUA Enterprise system. After the sale to Tata, the company began using another IP system, but quickly became dissatisfied.
“Our inventors were unhappy with the inflexibility and lack of usability of the new system,” said Matt Holmes, chief patent counsel for the company. “For this and other reasons, we are very glad to move back to ANAQUA. We were also impressed with the fast implementation process. We are a small team and could not afford to dedicate significant resources to the effort. Anaqua was able to complete the whole project in six weeks, including data migration and training.”
“I am very pleased to welcome back the Jaguar Land Rover team to the Anaqua community,” said Priya Iyer, CEO of Anaqua. “I am especially excited that we now have our ANAQUA Express SaaS offering, with streamline best practices configuration, to offer to smaller IP teams the size of Jaguar Land Rover. We are seeing significant growth of this product in the European market, particularly in the manufacturing sector.”
