IP Forecaster: Helping you create smarter budgets and strategies


Intellectual property costs are complex and constantly changing, and maximising the value of your IP requires efficiency and accuracy in budget forecasting.

That’s why we’ve created IP Forecaster, a secure and easy-to-use online tool that streamlines your entire budgeting process for patents, registered designs and trademarks. Using live market rates and powerful scenario modelling, IP Forecaster delivers fast, accurate and automated budgets.

A CPA Global customer was able to reduce the 20% variance between projected and final budget IP Management spend with IP Forecaster. We stream live data from key internal and external sources creating forecasts that are automatically tailored to incorporate local currency, legal and prosecution charges. IP Forecaster brings you best in class accuracy for your budgeting process.
