Leading IP technology provider CPA Global and Brügmann Software have partnered to deliver clients new levels of smart data integration across IP management systems
JERSEY AND MUNICH, 3 JULY 2019: IP technology leader CPA Global today announces a new partnership with Brügmann Software GmbH, Germany’s leading IP management software specialist, which will optimise and connect law firms and in-house IP teams to the world’s most trusted patent renewals management service through a joint technical interface and secure data transfer.
Through its flagship product PatOrg, Brügmann – a family owned business since 1984 – works with more than 350 law firms, corporates and research institutions across the DACH region to intelligently manage IP rights across the innovation lifecycle.
The partnership will see a complete integration between the coming version of PatOrg (6.2) and CPA Global’s market-leading global patent renewals service, delivering clients a seamless digital interface and a single point of access. This both mitigates the risk associated with manually transplanting and inputting data across multiple channels and enables a dramatic reduction in time expended on the patent management and renewals process.
Peter Thelen, Head of EMEA Partnerships at CPA Global, comments:
“The DACH region is one of the most dynamic IP markets in the world, particularly in the Mittelstand where high-growth, innovative businesses are generating an estimated 80% of IP assets in the region. There is an imperative for these businesses, and the law firms who support them, to have a strategic approach to IP with a focus on agility, efficiency and risk management. This partnership between CPA Global and Brügmann is a game-changer in terms of smart data transfer and patent automation, and will help legal teams digitise their IP functions, remove risk, minimise admin and deliver real strategic value to clients. Extensive data verification by CPA Global, ensures that customers always have up-to-date and reliable data.”
Sören Brügmann, CEO, Brügmann, comments:
“We have been collaborating with CPA Global for many years and are pleased to be bringing to market this innovative joint interface which offers full integration between our IP management software and CPA Global’s best-in-class technology infrastructure and services for patent renewals. Together, CPA Global and Brügmann, through PatOrg, already service separately a great number of firms in the German-speaking marketplace and this partnership will fundamentally connect the dots for our clients - enhancing speed, security and convenience.”
CPA Global has operated in the DACH region since the launch of its Munich office in 2001, supported by a team of more than 40 people working across CPA Global Germany.
