Anaqua and Clarivate Announce Strategic Partnership

Trademark search integration increases workflow efficiency for IP professionals

Boston, May 21, 2020

Anaqua, the leading provider of innovation and intellectual property management solutions, and Clarivate Plc (NYSE:CCC), a global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, today announced a strategic partnership that brings together two of the leading service providers in the trademark industry. The partnership will see CompuMark™, a part of Clarivate and industry leader in trademark research and protection solutions, working with Anaqua to help IP professionals work more efficiently.

The alliance will provide seamless integration between the ANAQUA® IP Management platform and the CompuMark trademark research and protection platform, delivering significant workflow efficiencies for IP professionals. Anaqua and Clarivate share a number of customers who perform different activities on the two platforms across the full trademark lifecycle—from screening to clearance to management. Available in summer 2020, the integration offers easy access between the systems, enabling automatic data sharing and negating the need for time-consuming manual export. This will help streamline work processes and reduce administrative burden.

Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua, said: “We are excited to be partnering with Clarivate and CompuMark, the market leader in trademark research and protection solutions. By teaming up, we are bringing a full lifecycle solution to trademark professionals that will help them save time, improve workflow, and expedite decision-making. The possibilities are very promising, and this is just the beginning.”    

Jeff Roy, President, IP Group, Clarivate, said: “Our partnership with Anaqua offers a time-saving solution powered by industry-leading technology to better service our customers. We are constantly innovating and expanding our solutions to enable our customers, the world’s leading brands, businesses and IP offices, to work more effectively, efficiently and with confidence.”
