With hundreds or thousands of patents in your IP portfolio, it can be a real challenge to forecast your maintenance fees for the next year, never mind beyond that. Expirations, new filings, exchanges rates and other factors impact the determination of these numbers.


And, they’re not to be taken lightly. The cost of maintaining a large intellectual property portfolio can skyrocket into the hundreds of thousands, even millions, of dollars. Your financial executives, business managers and legal department will all want to know what your future projections look like, so they can weigh costs against returns. It’s a time-consuming and detailed process that demands accuracy and precision.



In today’s highly competitive IP environment, your business and IP strategies must be aligned to maximize the value of your intellectual property assets. The common denominator in this alignment is an enterprise-level application that enables collaboration between departments and speeds decision making.
