THE CHALLENGE

Helping clients with a transparent and cost-effective service

Transparency

The patent renewal setups on the market were non transparent. Hereby, they were limiting the ability of IPTector to offer a patent renewal service with clear and justifiable cost breakdowns.

Differentiation

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.

Scalability

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

THE DECISION

Partnering with patentrenewal.com.

From the past experience of lacking 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 pursue his vision by helping to develop features that would benefit its SME clients even further.

THE SOLUTION

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 IPTector be reminded when patents are due to renewal and actions have 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 the clients.

  • Direct instructions on the platform
  • Add patents in few clicks
  • Complete automation
  • Transparent cost estimates
  • Watermark free client interface
TOTAL RENEWAL COST TO CLIENTS
-40

Cost management is largely relevant 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.

ADMINISTRATIVE TIME

VASTLY
REDUCED

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

THE RESULTS

Vast time reductions and an offer that can outcompete the legacy players.
