As the global leader in technology transfer and technology scouting software, Wellspring connects innovators to one another around the world. As of January 24th, these connections expand to further corners of the globe with the announcement of a formal partnership with IPRIS, a leading provider of intellectual property (IP) renewals, and IP Pragmatics, a leading IP consultancy. From start to finish, this software and services integration will support the process of IP management and technology transfer for Wellspring clients.
What does this mean for Wellspring users?
With this partnership, users will be able to integrate patent and trademark renewal payments into Wellspring’s tech transfer and IP management software.
Collectively, IPRIS and IP Pragmatics bring decades of experience and the highest quality assurance standards in managing renewal payments to Wellspring clients. With this integration, users save time and energy by relying on Wellspring software to manage these renewals and the various rules and regulations that come with them. In doing so, small and medium sized companies, universities, and tech transfer offices avoid the costly risk of missing a trademark or patent renewal deadline by putting that responsibility in the hands of IP Pragmatics. Additionally, users can reduce the overall cost of renewal management by streamlining services through the Wellspring partnership. Contact us for more details.
Known for their pragmatic, interactive approaches towards management consultancy, IPRIS and IP Pragmatics also bring expertise and knowledge to Wellspring that clients can trust. Specifically, “IPRIS is pleased to add value to Wellspring's existing IP software offering by enabling clients to have increased visibility and control of their IP renewals management,” said Dr. Bruno Dalle Carbonare, Chairman of the IPRIS board.
As a result, users can approach their work with the peace mind that comes with knowing they are protected by one transparent software solution.
What does this mean for the Europe, UK, and Australian markets?
In addition to product and services integration, IP Pragmatics’ global consultancy team will act as a direct channel sales team for Wellspring software. As Wellspring reaches new audiences in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia, IP Pragmatics will offer hands-on consulting and marketing experience. Clients in these markets can count on representatives for each region, allowing for constant, efficient support, regardless of location or time zone.
With years of experience in services ranging from patent landscaping, IP valuation, to IP audits, IP Pragmatics is prepared to take on any challenges and find solutions to Wellspring users’ IP management problems. Whether big or small, companies, universities, and institutions can rely on these experts to understand specific, organizational needs.
