Lenovo chooses ipan group for IP management
Munich, Germany; April 19th 2018 – ipan group, one of the leading providers of IP management services and software announced today that Lenovo has selected ipan group for its patent annuity maintenance.
Commenting on the announcement, Charles Dixon, Global Legal Systems Patent Project Manager at Lenovo, said “We are delighted to work together with ipan group. We needed a trusted and reliable partner for our patent annuities that offered flexibility, transparency and extremely competitive fees.”
“While the decision to migrate from our previous supplier was primarily driven by cost, the seamless integration with our IPfolio IPMS tool was another key argument for Lenovo to go hand in hand with ipan” continued Dixon.
Jens Lütcke, CEO ipan group said “Announcing Lenovo as a client really endorses the compelling value that ipan brings to the market with its combined software and services proposition, with full integration of ipan services into IPfolio through our recently launched ip-x-change platform. Lenovo is another excellent example of a major global brand trusting ipan.”
