Consumer electronics maker secures its IP Future with Evalueserve’s programmatic innovation solution


In today's cut-throat business world, safeguarding intellectual property assets is necessary for companies seeking to stay ahead of the competition. Our client, a renowned global technology and innovation leader, understands the significance of protecting its intellectual property assets against competitor infringement. 

The company partnered with Evalueserve, a leading Intellectual Property (IP) service provider, to achieve a comprehensive range of IP services. These services encompass patent prosecution, IP administration, drafting, search and intelligence, and native language support, allowing the technology company to establish a centrally driven Intellectual Property Development (IPD) ecosystem. With a programmatic innovation solution from Evalueserve, the technology company was able to streamline its intellectual property operations and ensure a seamless patent lifecycle, enhancing its ability to protect its assets across global regions.

The Challenge

Given its size as a global F100 company and organizational complexity, the company faced challenges with its IP management, such as quality assurance, confidentiality, cultural differences, costs, and compliance. 

With these constraints, the electronic goods manufacturer started looking for a global innovation firm to help them implement a programmatic solution to support their multifunction IP and R&D teams. They wanted to achieve a synchronized process amongst multiple disciplines under one umbrella. Their top concerns were around business risks, confidentiality, and legal implications.

The company found that Evalueserve's programmatic consultancy service could protect its IP and maintain a competitive advantage. Evalueserve's resources and experience enable efficient handling of a large volume of work, which would have been challenging for the client's internal team.

  • Patent administration stage: The IP admin and Docketing team take over the administrative tasks associated with the patent application, such as filing the application, tracking deadlines, and maintaining records, once they draft the application.
  • Patent prosecution stage: The Prosecution team manages the patent prosecution process, which involves communicating with the patent office, responding to office actions, and ensuring the application is approved.
  • Supplementary Services: The Search and Intelligence team at Evalueserve handles additional services like Directed Prosecution and Prior Art Searches, in addition to the core stages of the patent lifecycle.
