The Climate Corporation Selects Lecorpio to Streamline Invention Disclosure, Transform Patent Workflow and Provide Useful Analytics to Help Drive IP Strategy
Fremont, Calif., October 18, 2016 — The Climate Corporation, a digital agriculture company and Monsanto subsidiary that analyzes weather, soil and field data to provide powerful, data-driven insights to farmers, has chosen Lecorpio Intellectual Property Management to transform its patent, invention disclosure and spend management.
Christopher Grewe, Associate General Counsel at Climate, led the selection process that ultimately chose Lecorpio. “We needed a powerful, holistic IP management system to transform our patent workflow into a more efficient, scalable solution, one that reflected our company’s focus on using data to help farmers make more informed management decisions,” said Grewe. “Lecorpio provided a streamlined and convenient solution to capture innovation. Our key stakeholders will now be able to track how our inventions are progressing through the patent process, from idea to invention to patent filing. Lecorpio will also provide our legal department and senior management transparent, real-time access to patent-related information to help us drive our IP strategy forward.”
Grewe explained there was a clear synergy between Climate and Lecorpio given both companies’ efforts to maximize the value of utilizing data analytics to help their customers make informed decisions using simple solutions.
