ST HELIER, Jersey, March 15, 2011 - CPA Global, the world's top intellectual property (IP) management
specialist and leader in IP software solutions, has launched a new release of
FoundationIP, the hosted solution for managing IP portfolios in corporations
and law firms.
FoundationIP 4.2 includes a series of enhancements which provide improved
efficiency and flexibility, and help mitigate risk. Key features include the
ability to create data entries in one simple step (previously five steps),
and to copy data stored in custom fields into new matters - thus saving time
for users in updating matters and reducing the need to duplicate data entry.
Mark Wylde, CPA Global's Technology Services Director, said: "Helping our
clients work better and more efficiently is at the heart of everything we do
- and our software users are central to our product development work.
Enhancements to FoundationIP and our other software solutions are based on
the strong support from users and their valuable feedback through our
Software Advisory Councils."
CPA Global has established separate Software Advisory Councils (SACs) for
each of its three software solutions: FoundationIP, Memotech and Inprotech.
FoundationIP SAC member Emilie Benschoter, of Wagner Blecher, a
Californian-based patent attorney firm, is very enthusiastic about the
benefits of being involved in FoundationIP development. "Being a SAC member
means Wagner Blecher has the opportunity to put forward suggestions for
improvements which we have seen being implemented," she said. "SAC also
facilitates networking between users, sharing best practice and ideas."
Benschoter added: "For Wagner Blecher, FoundationIP has made
collaboration with clients easier, smoother and more reliable. When we speak
internally about FoundationIP, we say 'just hit the easy button'; because, to
us, that is what FoundationIP is - a user-friendly, straightforward solution
to IP portfolio management."
FoundationIP 4.2 further enables consolidation and standardisation in
managing IP portfolios, bringing a diverse range of work practices together
and helping to facilitate collaboration between in-house counsel, staff and
About Foundation IP
FoundationIP is CPA Global's web-based intellectual property (IP)
management system for corporations and law firms that enables users to manage
the entire IP process electronically. It provides a reliable and secure
online environment to manage all matter-related information and activities in
collaboration with people inside or outside of the organisation. Designed
from its inception as a web-based system, FoundationIP directly addresses the
growing needs faced by IP attorney firms and corporations to reduce the
overhead and inefficiencies inherent in the paper-based IP management
processes. It also more tightly integrates people outside their own
departmental or organisational boundaries into the IP prosecution workflow.
