There is a plethora of software on the market that claims to make the management of trade mark portofolios (tracking deadlines, fees, list of goods etc) as easy as pie. An incomplete overview includes the following:
WebTMS from IPPO
IPbase / MARVIN
Patricia from Patrix
WorldSuite from Questel
ipPortfolio5 from knowligent
IP LegalDock from Legalstar
Does any Class46 reader have (positive or negative) experience with any of the above mentioned applications (or any other for the same purpose)? Can you recommend one of them specifically for the administration of a medium to large trade mark portfolio (several hundred marks, no patents) in house (no complete outsourcing), allowing multi-user access over the internet? Any remarks on cost structure?
If you have any pointers, please leave them in the comments, or, if you prefer not to go public, send them to m.schweizer AT meyerlustenberger.ch. No obvious sales pitches, please.
Addendum on 23 November 2009: Craig Bailey of Questel informs me that the portfolio management software of his company, WorldSuite, should also be included in the list.
