Black Hills IP today announced a new strategic partnership with Patrix AB. The terms of the partnership enable Black Hills IP to more closely integrate its automated docketing solutions with Patrix’s powerful case management and docketing software.
Black Hills IP is an innovator of software systems that fully automate docketing operations of leading IP practices to simplify managing data from U.S. and international patent and trademark offices. Patrix is the developer of Patricia, a leading solution for IP case management and docketing used across the globe by top IP law firms and corporate IP groups.
Through closer integration, Patrix and Black Hills IP will provide our common customers the ability to leverage the power of Patricia with enhanced automated docketing. Black Hills IP’s systems extract, enhance and load data from patent and trademark offices directly into Patricia. This partnership enables our customers to achieve a higher quality level than human docketing alone and to realign their workforce into higher-value roles than manual data entry for docketing and case management purposes.
“We are excited to combine our expertise in the management of big data, essential to efficient IP operations, with the power of Patricia,” said Russ Slifer, Chief Executive Officer, Black Hills IP. “Patrix is joining the list of case management and docketing developers who open their systems for the benefit of their customers. Customers are no longer limited to choosing between maintaining an internal staff to perform manual data entry in their docket system or outsourcing that data entry to a vendor that often uses foreign-based labor.”
“At Patrix, we are firmly committed to offering our customers the flexibility to configure their case management workflows to best support how their operations work,” said Mehrdad Assadi, Chief Technology Officer, Patrix. “Through closer collaboration with Black Hills IP, the power of artificial intelligence can be realized to modernizing IP operations in combination with world-class case management software.”
