CPA Global 2016 Annual Review now available online

CEO Simon Webster outlines our company’s plan to lead in the Intellectual Property technology and management sector, and to grow sustainably for the long term in the CPA Global 2016 Annual Review. In addition to the CEO update, the review spotlights three key areas where CPA Global is leading the industry forward:

  • Central to our strategy is our development of The IP Platform, a fully-integrated technology, data and services SaaS solution, available through a single sign-on environment, which provides our customers with best-in-class solutions across the innovation lifecycle.
  • Building on our leading position in China, we intend to invest further in that market in order to capture the rapid growth in patent applications as Chinese corporates expand internationally.
  • The Law Firm market globally also represents huge potential for CPA Global. Given our law firm heritage, it is a segment we know better than any of our competitors and one in which we enjoy a significant advantage.
