About us

IP Software that works like you do

 


True to our motto “IP Software that works like you do”, we have been systematically designing new products and software solutions for over 30 years – always focussed on the needs of our customers. Our dynamic team consists of dedicated employees who have been using their experience and know-how – and above all their passion – every day for over 30 years to optimise your working processes with our Intellectual Property Management software and our services with lasting effect. We attach great importance to a good working relationship and good communication throughout the entire team.

In our 15 minute “Dailies” at our Kanban board, we swap current information and insights and together draw up solutions to ongoing assignments. Our customers are also the beneficiaries of this system. Our slogan “... and the work flows ...” is our guiding maxim in our daily actions and it summarises our philosophy in a nutshell. This is our promise to you: professional project handling and a highly dedicated team.
