Removing the barriers to collaboration

Global collaboration is essential, yet it can be complex, burdensome, confusing and costly to manage.

Connect allows you to collaborate with your network of agents and service providers within a structured environment seamlessly linking instructions, tasks, fees, invoices and payments. Improve productivity and simplify operations while reducing costs and risk.

Why Connect?

  1. Improve productivity
    Connect’s structured collaboration environment enhances productivity by gathering workflow information in one place and replacing email as a communications medium.
  2. Simplify operations
    Simplify your filing and prosecution processes by eliminating email, automating docketing and streamlining your invoice processing workflows.
  3. Reduce costs
    Connect’s structured collaboration environment enables cost savings by reducing the need to match, check and track information in your filing and prosecution and related invoice management processes.
  4. Achieve predictability in your spend
    By structuring and managing fees and invoices for foreign associates, Connect provides consolidated spending details that helps improve budget forecasting accuracy.
  5. Reduce risk
    Automated docketing eliminates the risk of overlooking incoming information, which can lead to missed deadlines, late fees and potentially lost rights.
  6. Drive digital transformation
    Leverage the power of digitization and global connectivity to transform collaboration across geographies and time zones. Act faster and more efficiently by erasing boundaries and eliminating friction in your communications and transactions.
