San Mateo, CA, United States, 2012/03/28 - Innovative Silicon Valley law firm, WAVS IP, selects First To File to increase efficiency and customer service - WAVSIP.com / FirstToFile.com.
First To File®, a leading provider of SaaS-based IP management technology, announces today that California based IP law firm, Weaver Austin Villeneuve & Sampson, LLP (WAVS IP), will be piloting the entire First To File IP information management System in their offices.
As a firm that specializes in IP services for highly innovative companies, WAVS IP is committed to leading the IP industry with the adoption of technology that will increase customer service, while decreasing costs. WAVS IP believes that First To File’s Electronic File Room (EFR) will enable the firm to serve its clients more effectively and position the firm administration to innovate rapidly. For example, WAVS IP anticipates streamlining Prior Art management and IDS generation through FTF’s Reference Library.
Jeff Weaver, Managing Partner at WAVS IP says,“We made the decision to go paperless last year. While we looked at general document management systems, we were concerned with the amount of customization they require for an IP firm. We decided to pilot First To File, because it offers a means to file and retrieve patent-related documents faster. An extra incentive is the Reference Library, which should give us a way of efficiently handling our IDS requirements.”
First To File CEO James P. Bergeron notes,“First To File’s product suite, including our Patent and Trademarks Modules, provides modern, IP focused technology, and allows all our clients to cut costs, streamline operations and improve the resulting work product. We are excited to work with WAVS IP, which is truly an innovative and forward-thinking organization.”
