Markify/Questel launches the first ChatGPT powered IP service

ChatGPT plus Markify

As the first intellectual service provider Markify (a Questel brand), we are today launching a ChatGPT powered trademark service.

The buzz around ChatGPT has been increasing the last few months and the prophecies of how this will affect the world of online services are plenty.

At Markify we have been following the development of NLP (Natural Language Processing) and LLM's (Large Language Models) and what possible use we could make of this in the trademark world.

This first ChatGPT service is aimed at letting our clients experience how an advanced Large Language Model like ChatGPT can serve in the context of trademark search. We have first released it for our Comprehensive Search Reports, where ChatGPT will give the user its answers on a number of specific questions related to that specific trademark search.

As always at Markify, this is a joint development project together with our clients. We are looking forward to user feedback so we can gain further insights into how we should leverage generative models on intellectual property data.

This first version of a ChatGPT powered service is just a glimpse of what will come. The quality delivered by ChatGPT already today is astonishing and it is not rocket science to predict that this new technology will re-write the IP services landscape.

Don't hesitate to contact me with questions or comments.

The Markify brand and philosophy of delivering the highest quality and cost-efficiency along with superior service level to our clients will remain the same. And I will stay on as CEO. That is a promise.

As you know, the strength of Markify lies in its cutting-edge algorithm and technology development along with designing online services with both very high quality and a high degree of cost-efficiency. Having access to the infrastructure Questel has built will enable us to build even better tools and new product offerings for our clients as well as provide better service all around.

New Business Intelligence Services

New Business Intelligence Services

One of the earliest indicators that a company is planning to launch a new product is the filing of a trademark. Properly monitored, this type of business intelligence can be a valuable input to your, or to your client’s, competitive strategy.

Markify has launched two new business intelligence services with which to monitor competitor activity.

Owner Watch and Goods & Services Watch will send notifications when a competitor makes a new strategic filing. Here is a quick overview of Markify's two new services:

The Owner Watch will in a weekly report give you all new trademark applications filed by a specific owner/applicant. But it will also give you an intelligent flag system which will point out the new, really interesting filings.

The Goods & Services Watch will send you all new filings with the watched goods and services. Like the Owner Watch, it will flag applications that are really interesting.

Pricing is similar to our Trademark Watch: €89 EUR per year for a global Owner Watch. If you just want one country it is €25 EUR per year. Bulk discounts start at 50 watches/year. Contact Markify Support to get your free trial code. Or, view more information, including detailed pricing.

The next time you log in to your Markify account, you will notice an updated dashboard, which we built to house our new services - and more new services that will be released soon.
