World’s Largest Trademark Filer Selects Markify as Trademark Search and Watch Provider

See the press release at:  

http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171107005509/en/LegalZoom-Selects-Markify-Trademark-Search-Monitoring-Provider

Why should this interest you? Because of why LegalZoom selected us.

There were three main reasons LegalZoom selected Markify, a technology focused provider, and not another supplier: 1) quality, 2) effectiveness and 3) price.

1. Search result quality

LegalZoom processes around 30.000 trademark filings a year. That is probably more than any other company in the world.

At that scale you simply cannot afford to have a trademark search system that fails, that misses what you should have found. Because then you will be wrong so many times, that you will eventually not have a filing business.

LegalZoom tested us thoroughly during many months, in parallel with other providers’ systems, before they took the decision to go with Markify. That is a proof of quality, that I also think is relevant to all our clients.

2. Effective tools and automated processes

At the scale of 30.000 filings, and at that end user price, you need the fastest, most effective trademark search tools you can get.

If there is a trademark attorney or paralegal analyzing the results, they must have the tools to very fast be able to determine what is relevant and what is not, without missing any pertinent results.

When there is no human analysis done, you need the fully automated process.

You also need all other processes, like order, search, report creation and email communication, to be fully automated. With our wide range of trademark API’s you get that 100% automated process.

If you want to discuss how we can help you streamline your trademark search/watch process, just contact us for a discussion.

3. Aggressive pricing

At that scale, price is obviously a very important factor. Markify have always had the lowest prices in the trademark search industry and we will continue to deliver the best pricing.

If you ever think our pricing is not the best, that you can get something similar at a better price, please send us a note so we can correct that.

Benefit for all Markify clients

I believe all our clients will benefit from this deal since it brings scale to our business and will let us continue to add trademark databases and create more innovative trademark search and monitoring technology.

Any thoughts on this, please drop me an email at benoit@markify.com.

INTA Barcelona: The Four Good Reasons to Visit the Markify Booth (D25)

There are at least four good reasons to visit the Markify booth (D25) at INTA in Barcelona the coming Sunday-Wednesday:

1. See our new trademark search product ProSearch in action. It is the first search platform that combines a clearance search with a deep opposition analysis.

2. Get the free trial to all our trademark search and watch products. We promise you will be surprised by the quality and that it will save you a lot of time and money. 

3. You can win something great just by dropping your card in the bowl! 

4. Meet part of the team and discuss your challenges and see if we cannot help you with them. 

If you cannot reach us in the booth, just send me an email at benoit@markify.com.

Sneak Peek at the New Trademark Search Platform at the TMAP Conference in Washington DC

The INTA's TMAP conference is starting today at the Washington Hilton and if you are participating at the conference you will be able to get a first look at the new Markify search platform in our exhibition booth. 

We have together with US and European clients been working hard with our new search platform that we think will change how you approach trademark searching, what you expect from a search platform and what you have to pay for it.   

Beta tester?

There is still some work that has to be done on the new platform so the official launch is first in a couple of weeks, when I will also explain the new platform more in detail. But already next week we will start to let a few beta testers in. 

If you would like to be one of our first beta testers, just send us an email at support@markify.com with the headline "beta tester".
