Waters Chooses ANAQUA 9 for IP Management

World's leading specialty measurement company optimizes filing efficiency and idea-to-asset workflow

BOSTON--()--Anaqua, Inc., a leading provider of Intellectual Property (IP) management software and services, today announced that Waters Corporation has selected ANAQUA to enhance its IP operations and enable improved collaboration.

The $2 billion publicly traded specialty measurement technology company will migrate its IP software from Lecorpio to Anaqua’s new ANAQUA 9 software.

The Anaqua software will now provide Waters with built-in data analytics and flexibility to create and share interactive dashboards. Waters will also be able to improve the efficiency of its idea-to-asset workflow as the software will help them deliver the right information to the right person at the right time, enabling the company to optimize filing efficiency and see real-time analytics for each filing.

“We needed an IP management solution that could handle a significant number of workflows and disclosures,” said Michael Lynn, Senior Director and Managing Counsel of IP, Waters Corporation. “Internal and external collaboration is much easier with Anaqua. The data analytics that once took us hours to produce can be done at the click of a button.”

Waters, which delivers scientific solutions to laboratory-dependent organizations, relies heavily on its IP assets to stay ahead of its competitors. As the corporation continues to grow in size with direct operations in more than 30 countries, Anaqua will help it align its IP strategy with its fast-evolving business.

“Waters has established themselves as a world leader in the highly competitive analytical science technology sector,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua. “We're delighted that Anaqua’s advanced analytics and intuitive IP management tools will provide Waters with the quality of insights required to make highly informed, strategic business decisions that will help keep them ahead of the game.”
