Helping clients with a transparent and cost-effective service.



The patent renewal setups on the market were not transparent. They were therefore limiting the ability of IPTector to offer a patent renewal service with clear and justifiable cost breakdowns.


With no immediate online access and control over the key aspects of patent renewal information, IPTector could not differentiate its patent renewal offer from the competition.


The time involved to maintain the system and the high fees charged by the patent renewal providers were limiting factors preventing a scalable and cost-effective service.


Partnering with patentrenewal.com.

Having experienced a lack of transparency when using law firms or renewals services, IPTector was looking for a solution that would align with its mission “to cut out all the red tape to make sure that clients get the best deal”.

With the possibility of tapping into the product development of patentrenewal.com, IPTector provided useful feedback to enable this vision by helping to develop features that would benefit its SME clients even further.


A simple and intuitive system to keep track of all patent renewal activities.

As a patent attorney firm, their focus is not on managing patent renewals.

Patentrenewal.com helps remind IPTector when patents are due for renewal and actions need to be taken on the platform.

When clients have questions about prices or the current status of a renewal, it is simple for IPTector to use the platform as a tool to pass the information along to clients.

Cost management is important to SMEs. IPTector is using patentrenewal.com to cut the total renewal cost to clients by 40% and give them access to a complete and fully transparent patent renewal service.

Thanks to a clear overview and automation of administrative tasks, IPTector is ensuring that there are no inefficiencies in its pricing structure.
