AT PATRIX IP SERVICES, WE LISTEN TO OUR CLIENTS NEEDS AND RESPOND WITH ENERGY, SPEED AND AGILITY. WE USE OUR SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE TO PROVIDE THE SERVICE OUR CLIENTS DEMAND.
At Patrix, we have always prided ourselves on our high professional standards, as well as the ability to deliver qualified services. These values are equally important at our subsidiary Patrix IP services. Reduce your procedural, administrative and portfolio management costs by subscribing to our global IP annuity and renewal service.
Patrix IP Services was formed in 2004, following requests from Patricia clients who wanted a reliable partner that could easily interact with their existing software. Patrix IP Services remains a subsidiary of Patrix with all the benefits of a professional IT supplier close at hand. We provide digital and customized solutions for all your global annuity and renewal payments. The options are nearly unlimited and the choice is yours.
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU
We believe in the personal touch providing exceptional service to our clients. Our philosophy is simple and can be summarized in the following four important aspects that enable us to keep fees and costs down for you, while ensuring total control, safety and efficiency. Once your setup is completed, we’re good to go.
DIRECT PAYMENTS TO PATENT OFFICES
We make direct payments to those patent authorities which allow it. This saves you unnecessary third party agent fees and is a safe and easy way to make sure that fees are paid. Where local agents are required, we utilize our global network of Patricia clients wherever possible. We are constantly evaluating agents as well as agent fees.
Digital data transfer is swift, easy and efficient, avoiding the possibility of human errors. For our clients also using the Patricia software, we conduct two-way XML digital transfers, as well as TXT or ZIP format transfers, all depending on the purpose of the file. This is easily configured via the flexible options which Patricia offers and leads to a very simple import/export in order to instruct, maintain and update your cases electronically.
We run a paperless office as far as possible. This includes:
o Digital instructions to agents
o Digital invoices from agents
o Digital invoices to clients, if requested
o Digital import of the cost per case, if requested
Our fees are all-inclusive, and based on three factors: non-negotiable official fees, agent fees and our service fee – we charge no extra for maintaining your data in our database. We provide you with current price lists for all countries upon your request, though please note that additional costs for document handling and courier charges may apply. Our currency exchange rates follow the official rates closely and are regularly updated. We will always be happy to provide you with our latest rates at your request. 24/7 access to your files can be arranged by acquiring our online Patricia Collaboration Portal.
o Quality checks, if required
o Invoicing in one single currency
o Budget lists, cost estimates and requirements
o Document handling and Power of Attorney
(both general and per renewal)
We can also assist you with assignments, change of name, change of address, providing information on proof of use requirements and reclassification of trademarks. Please note that these additional services are not included in our ordinary fees.
