Anaqua, a leading provider of intellectual asset management software and services, today announced a new service to reduce the cost and complexity of international patent filing for Anaqua clients. ANAQUA Filing Services streamlines applications for national patents under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) or the European Patent Office (EPO).
ANAQUA Filing Services provide patent translations and the preparation and filing of PCT national stage entries and European patent validations in individual countries. The PCT process supports patent applications in 146 countries. The EPO process is available for filing patents in 38 European countries.
Because ANAQUA Filing Services are integrated into the ANAQUA software solutions, clients can obtain quotes and instruct filings without leaving the ANAQUA patent screen. The order request is sent and the status updated automatically within the ANAQUA system.
