Lenovo Successfully Implements Cloud-based IPfolio System for Global, Flexible and User-friendly Intellectual Property (IP) Management

IPfolio,
provider of next-generation Intellectual Property Management solutions,
announced today that global technology company Lenovo
has purchased and successfully implemented IPfolio’s IP
Portfolio Manager for Patents, Inventors Portal, and Reports &
Dashboards. Lenovo chose IPfolio because of its cloud-based flexibility,
ease of use, collaborative tools and fluid connection to the company’s
Chinese and Rest of World (ROW) IP operations.

Lenovo began its search for an alternative to its incumbent solution
Memotech back in 2016. Charles Dixon, Lenovo’s Global Legal Systems
Patent Project Manager, led the evaluation process. After much research
and testing Charles and Douglas Robinson, Lenovo’s Executive Director of
IP, ultimately decided to purchase IPfolio.

IPfolio provided a cloud-based IP management system that would connect
Lenovo’s global IP teams, particularly enabling connectivity to China
where its IP portfolio needs were greatest. Lenovo’s IP professionals
can easily drag and drop documents and pull reports.

Dixon says, “Since IPfolio is built on the Salesforce Platform, it
easily aligns to our current apps that reside in Salesforce i.e. Abacus,
etc. Our staff can also self-address issues without enlisting the
assistance of our in-house IT or a vendor. IPfolio is a great,
innovative tool which will improve Lenovo’s overall IP patent landscape
and workflow schema going forward. The system is quick and powerful; we
can easily build on it and take it wherever we go. Lenovo’s technical
staff, lawyers and inventors are all happy with IPfolio.”

IPfolio has just completed its rollout in Lenovo’s U.S. offices in
Chicago and the Raleigh-Durham Metropolitan Area. Several international
offices will be rolled out this summer, followed by China as the final
phase.

Rupert
Mayer, IPfolio’s CEO, comments, “We are thrilled that Lenovo has
chosen IPfolio and that the U.S. go-live has been a great success. Our
global Solution Delivery and Customer Success teams will continue to
assist Charles Dixon and his colleagues to fully complete IPfolio’s
worldwide deployment at Lenovo.”
