I am delighted to welcome Lecorpio to the Anaqua family. With our merger, it is evident that the world’s most forward-thinking IP technology companies have joined forces. Given that we have operated in the same space for a number of years, Anaqua and Lecorpio already have a lot of mutual respect for each other. We were worthy competitors and now we are worthy partners. As two of the most agile, innovative and customer-focused providers of IP management solutions, our cultures are actually already very well aligned and our organizational structures are similar. This is why we are confident that we will continue to provide the best in class IP software solution and go from strength to strength.
The recent Hyperion Report independently evaluated Anaqua as the Number 1 provider of IP management solutions for both corporations and law firms with Lecorpio as a close Number 2. By bringing the best of both of our companies and technologies together, we can accelerate innovation and deliver even better solutions and services for our customers.
Anaqua has successfully integrated multiple organizations and technologies via partnership, merger and acquisition. Because of this, we are confident that our merger with Lecorpio will be just as successful and the work to align our efforts is already underway. The newly combined company will continue to operate both brand names and will support both software platforms for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, we are very excited to bring additional, complementary services to Lecorpio’s customers -for example, integrated analytics (powered by AcclaimIP and PatentRiver) and our global annuity payment services. I am proud to say that successful mergers mean a great deal to our team culture and this presents a chance to improve, learn and gain valued colleagues and new friends. The outcome is a win-win for customers and the team alike.
For those who are creating rumours we are raising prices; it is simply not true. We do not anticipate any changes to our pricing model. Anaqua offers various packages and pricing models to suit different sized organizations and their needs. We have a flexible solution which allows smaller customers to start with a baseline package and then scale the solution as their business scales and their needs evolve. As a subscription-based offering, Anaqua also offers certainty in budget planning year on year and access to our continuous enhancements and innovations. We have a tried and tested implementation methodology which allows us to get new clients up and running quickly with a real focus on go-live and return on investment and continuous gains thereafter.
Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and we work really hard to try and be the best at what we do. Anaqua’s teamworks closely with our client base to create an unbeatable IP management ecosystem which delivers real business and strategic value. We are also proud to say we have second to none client retention and we have more staff dedicated to this mission than pretty much anyone out there. As a financially sound business providing great long term IP solutions (and the trust that we will be around for the long haul for our customers) I humbly suggest our track record really speaks for itself.
Stay tuned for more details on our merger. In the meantime, please message me if you have further questions.
