Innography Fuels International Expansion with Asian Business Development Tour
Corporate leadership in meetings with regional partners and companies in China and Japan
Key leaders from Innography, the innovative software provider of better intellectual property answers for improved business results, have recently returned from a business development tour through China and Japan to fuel Asian expansion and promote new opportunities with partners, business leaders and government officials.
“As the world’s second and third largest economies, China and Japan represent large and vitally important intellectual property (IP) jurisdictions for companies worldwide,” said John F. Martin, CEO and chairman, Innography. “We ended last year with over 20 clients in these two countries, and already this year we’ve added a half-dozen more.”
The two-week business development tour began with meetings in Tokyo, where the team met with several businesses ranging from electronics to food service and government sector. Of all countries worldwide, Japan has by far the largest number of companies with over 1,000 patent filings, and the increasing interest in licensing and monetizing patents is driving a need for solutions like Innography.
The Innography leaders continued to Beijing, China, where they hosted an IP summit with their China-based partner that attracted 100 IP practitioners. After several days in Shanghai sponsoring the IPBC Asia conference, they wrapped up with client and prospect visits in Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
Innography supports all clients globally with comprehensive data coverage including native-language and English translations of all Chinese and Japanese patent filings, included at no additional charge in every Innography product. Local partners in China and Japan also provide responsive native-language training and support.
Utilizing unique data correlation and visualization technologies, Innography software solutions streamline and improve IP analysis to enable organizations to get products to market faster, uncover new revenue sources, keep better track of competitors, preempt litigation claims and stay on top of numerous IP-associated functions.
“I’ve been using Innography for about two years and its analysis functions relieve me of a lot of work,” said Zhang Bo Qiu, professor, Jilin University. “They have put many complicated factors together, with integrated display, to ease understanding and communications with our clients. In a word, Innography is a great and useful patent analysis tool.”
