Positive Purchasing has established a collaborative partnership with Patent Annuity Costs, combining best practice procurement category management and negotiation capability with proven patent market and cost analysis expertise, to create the PatentPlus Program.
PatentPlus is a high impact results-based program that can deliver immediate and significant cost savings at no risk to the patent owner’s business. The program reviews the client’s patent renewal spend with its current suppliers and identifies opportunities for cost reduction – a winning solution with an exceptional return on investment.
Patent Annuity Costs Ltd, established in 2015, assists patent holders with management of the costs of paying patent annuities, specifically negotiation of suitable terms and pricing with payment providers. It is headed up by Peter Rouse who has over 30 years’ experience of working in the intellectual property (IP) legal services sector.
