Casalecchio Di Reno, Bologna, Italy, 2014/03/03 - The Solair cloud-based platform is at the basis of the new application developed by Mito to manage brands and patents - SolairCorporate.com.
MI.TO. Technology Srl is a consultancy firm specialised in intellectual property management and protection for public and private organisations. Their clients include large multinational corporations, small and medium enterprises, start-ups and spin-offs, banks, venture capital and private equity funds, universities and research centres. When MI.TO. was called upon to manage the patent application for the Solair Platform, they understood immediately that the platform’s flexibility and versatility could also satisfy their own needs.
Managing intellectual property rights is based on perfect alignment between articulated procedures that must take into account variations in national laws, and a full calendar of deadlines and a substantial exchange of information. The complex bureaucratic procedures involved in managing brands and above all patents require a multitude of constant activities for every single client.
The daily challenge for MI.TO. is monitoring deadlines and renewals, issuing outgoing invoices and managing incoming invoices, drawing up reports, storing various documents and numerous other costly, time consuming and important activities for the variety and quantity of data that is monitored and for the regulations and laws that vary from country to country. MI.TO. therefore needed to create a system that could guarantee agility, flexibility, speed and security when managing the critical aspects of all intellectual property rights.
“The application that we have developed on the Solair Platform and that we are continually improving explains Massimiliano Granieri, Vice President of MI.TO. Technology is a cloud-based IP Management system that makes it easier to manage data. There are other similar solutions available on the market but they are targeted at larger organisations. We wanted to develop an application starting from our specific needs related to displaying information, accessibility, research and security. Once we understood the potential of the Solair platform we understood that we could use it to our advantage. Managing intellectual property is laborious but now our load has been lightened with the solution we have developed.”
“The Solair Platform is easy to use continues Granieri and makes it possible to create a vertical application in just a short time which means we get advantages even sooner. We count on offering this solution on the market to companies that have the same needs as we do such as small-medium sized companies that manage brands and patents and that cannot rely on the costly IP Management solutions currently available on the market.”
“Thanks to the industrial and commercial standards on which it is built the Solair Platform is a sure-fire solution in a field where a simple mistake can have serious financial consequences” declared Tom Davis, CEO of Solair. “It’s simplicity means that even people without software development skills can create applications to meet their business requirements. You just need to have the right intuition and understand the business logic to develop a vertical application on the Solair Platform that can be sold to the market.”
Today the advantages that MI.TO. can achieve by using the new application can be summarised as a reduction in time in data entry and maintenance phases, simplicity in accessing the multitude of documents, contracts, brands, patents etc in a single, safe repository that can be accessed from any device, greater and improved visibility of all activities, better collaboration within the company in overall management of clients as well as guaranteeing the privacy and security of the data managed. MI.TO. is also able to offer this new application to organisations with the same needs as themselves that are looking for a competitive and convenient solution.
