Aranca Announces Alliance With Cloud Based AI Enabled Patent Analytics and Management Company ClearAccessIP for VC & PE Market

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aranca, a leading provider of Investment, Business, Intellectual Property Research and Valuations to Global Clients, announces a distribution alliance with ClearAccessIP.

ClearAccessIP, a Silicon Valley-based patent technology company, offers a cloud-based AI enabled deal room, planning, management and docketing solution for IP departments. The solution eliminates the cost, time consumption and inaccuracy of manual data entry by offering the ability to upload data real time from USPTO PAIR systems and Excel spread sheets.

The platform is ideal for late stage VC backed companies and established PE backed companies needing better visibility in their IP portfolios for budgeting, management and planning. The systems ability to scale also makes the platform ideal for University Tech Transfer offices and Licensing Departments of Fortune 500 Companies.

Dylan Gittleman, Aranca Vice President and an Advisor to ClearAccessIP, stated, “Aranca has assembled a cross practice team that offers Valuations, Business and IP Research catering to PE Firms and their portfolio companies. ClearAccess IP complements our IP offering of licensing and infringement analysis, claims charting, landscape analysis, prosecution support, prior art search and IP valuations with an Innovative AI enabled IP management and analytics cloud offering and IP strategy services by renown Patent Attorneys. We are very excited to develop a partnership with ClearAccessIP. Over the last 10 years, I have seen revolutionary innovation in finance department management solutions. From my perspective, the same revolution in IP Management and Analytics is now occurring for legal departments. Startups out of Stanford University, including Lex Machina and Stanford University’s CodeX Fellow Nicole Shanahan’s ClearAccessIP, are revolutionizing IP Departments in the way Netsuite, Financial Force and Reuters ONESOURCE have revolutionized finance departments.”

Nicole Shanahan, Stanford CodeX Fellow and ClearAccessIP CEO, stated, “We are excited to have developed a distribution alliance with Aranca Valuations and Research where we can provide visibility to our cloud offering in the VC and PE backed company market. To launch our alliance, through June 2016 we will offer free 6 month trials to all Aranca Private Equity and Venture Capital backed company clients. Whether your company has 5 patents pending or 1,000 patents issued, the migration from spread sheets and legacy systems is hassle free, zero cost and takes minimal time with the ClearAccessIP offering.”
