The Anaqua AQX platform is the backbone that enables us to work more effectively as a team…. AQX provides us with a high degree of automation and relieves us of much of the time-consuming repetitive work; and the ability to capture various input, including status updates and the rationale behind decisions.

Christof Wolpert

Vice President, Global Legal Innovation, adidas

We use the AQX platform across our full patent lifecycle: from front-end invention submission, prosecution, all the way through to annuities right up to the end of the life of a patent. We also rely on the AQX platform to handle a lot of the day-to-day activity in our IP workflow activities now.

Daryl Bradley

Senior Director and Head of Intellectual Property Prosecution, Arm

We believe that the AQX IP management system, which is a global cloud service, will enable us to standardize and further enhance efficiency of IP operations, replacing our previous on-premise legacy system.

Kanna Kimura

Director of the Cloud Services Management Department of the Digital System Platform Division, Fujitsu

With our extensive range of products and solutions for intensive care, cardiovascular procedures, operating rooms, sterile reprocessing, life science and digital healthcare solutions and our strong international presence with operations in more than 40 countries worldwide, it was important to be able to improve the efficiency and coordination of our IP management by consolidating onto a centralized platform. AQX enables us to do that, while also providing highly integrated functionality in key areas such as analytics and invention management.

Anna Maria Lagerqvist Gahm

Head of IP & Digital Law, Getinge

We were looking for an integrated approach that would enable us to manage our patent portfolio more efficiently and holistically. AQX’s comprehensive intellectual property management platform enabled global IP management for us. During implementation, Anaqua and Kyocera Document Solutions Inc. worked closely together to build up a new workflow. Anaqua listened and were responsive to our needs, enabling us to achieve the best fit for our operations.

Seitaro Yoshida

General Manager of Legal and Intellectual Property Division, Kyocera Document Solutions Inc.

Getting good automated systems that streamline workflows and work processes is critical for us, given our limited resources and the vast amount of activity coming through. With Anaqua, we have a great partner, who is helping us deliver more, both in terms of volume and value – and AQX is key.

Will Federspiel

Director & Senior Counsel – IP, Reebok

Yokogawa’s goal is to provide value through a System of Systems (SoS) approach. In SoS, value is created by complex combinations of a wide variety of intellectual property.  Therefore, we believe that the strategic value of IP will increase significantly. With the AQX platform, we look forward to being able to execute IP activities that are more aligned with business strategies due to advanced analysis and appropriate management of our IP portfolio.

Nobuo Tanaka

General Manager of the Intellectual Property Department, Yokogawa Electric

Anaqua’s AQX® Corporate IP management platform has been instrumental in enabling our lean IP team to work more productively and effectively. Anaqua’s Global IP Estimator® enabled us to generate future-cost estimates for our patent and trademark applications worldwide and made the budgeting process much easier this year.

Benjamin Brown

Chief IP Counsel, Assistant General Counsel, Onto Innovation

With Innovation Centers in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, UK, India, Singapore and China and a portfolio of 25,000 patents, the challenge was huge. Despite this, I have never seen a more successful IT system implementation project. It is a tribute to the whole team - NXP, Anaqua...

Hans Pennings

A whole new world has been opened up to me and I really appreciate it. It's been something I've wanted - to be able to manage all of our IP portfolios globally in a central system.

Dr. Udo Meyer

One key benefit of Anaqua is the Users Group which has been formed. Talking to top-class IP owners about the system at User Group meetings and also the processes and procedures each company uses to manage its Intellectual Property rights is tantamount to bench-marking with the best.

At the end of the day, it comes down to three factors: cost, speed and quality; and, thanks to AQX Law Firm, we have been able to deliver on all counts.
