Diebold Nixdorf moves IP portfolio to Anaqua

Boston-based IP management and analytics software firm Anaqua said ATM giant Diebold Nixdorf has selected the Anaqua platform to manage its global IP portfolio from its operations in the US and Germany.

Diebold Nixdorf will use Anaqua’s software and services to manage its complete IP asset portfolio including patents, trademarks, designs and inventions.

Diebold Nixdorf, which manages more than 5,000 active patents and trademarks, was previously using two different systems for managing IP.

“As our company continues to grow rapidly across the globe, we were looking for an IP system that was technologically advanced with built-in analytics and dashboards,” said Edward Crooks, executive counsel of IP at Diebold Nixdorf.

“We were impressed by Anaqua’s complete IP management solution and its integrated services, workflow automation, and outside counsel integration.”

Anaqua CEO Bob Romeo said: “We are honored to be selected by the world’s largest maker of ATM machines and cash systems.

“Our teams in both Germany and the U.S. look forward to helping them continue to accelerate their pace of innovation and to manage their global IP assets more effectively.”
