- Questel Boosts IPMS Capabilities By Partnering With Salesforce
Paris, October 24th, 2023 – Global intellectual property (IP) solutions provider Questel announced today that it had entered into a pioneering partnership with leading cloud-based software company Salesforce. As an official reseller of Salesforce licenses, Questel increases its support for clients of its Equinox Corporate+ IP management system, which is built on Salesforce’s cloud-based technology.
Questel’s Equinox Corporate+ solution is a dedicated IP management system (IPMS) created with Salesforce technology. By using the Salesforce platform, Questel can offer clients the highest levels of compliance with global legal and security standards and ensure access to new technologies as tested and validated by Salesforce users at 150,000+ organizations worldwide. This enables Equinox Corporate+ to deliver unrivalled levels of scalability, accessibility, security, and interoperability to IP departments.
The IP specialist also provides comprehensive off-the-shelf IP management solutions based on proprietary technology for corporations (Equinox Corporate) and law firms (Equinox Law Firm and Equinox Law Firm+). This enables clients to choose the IP management software that supports and aligns with their internal processes and existing technology stack.
As it is launched through the Salesforce App Exchange, Equinox Corporate+ is easily integrated with nearly 4,500 third-party applications through open APIs, including Microsoft Teams, DocuSign, Google Drive, SAP, and iManage. As is the case for all Equinox IPMS technologies, it can also be connected seamlessly to Questel’s wide range of tech-enabled IP services and AI-driven search and watch tools, as well as services or systems supported by other IP service providers.
Equinox Corporate+ stands out for its ability to harness the full potential of integration, customization, and automation offered by the Salesforce platform. Thanks to its cutting-edge technology and focus on interoperability, users can fully tailor and streamline each stage of the IP management lifecycle from correspondence, document, and invoice management to collaborative IP docketing, automated data verification, aggregated financial reporting, efficient processes, comprehensive reporting, and more.
As an official reseller, Questel can now provide clients of Equinox Corporate+ with Salesforce licenses. Companies do not need to have a Salesforce license to acquire Equinox Corporate+ but will gain a license as part of the IPMS agreement.
