Mobilizing our Know-How to Provide KPO Services of Value
The Pasona Group: not only delivering advanced patent research as a Research Organization Registered with the Japan Patent Firm but also offering a range of BPO services. Panasonic IP Management: offering Product Development Support and Intellectual Property Management and Operation. By fusing these two sets of know-how, we can offer KPO services that exceed customers’ expectations.
KPO is an abbreviation of Knowledge Process Outsourcing. Whereas BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) is centered around the outsourcing of simple work, KPO involves the outsourcing of data collection, processing, analysis and making proposals and other tasks that are complex and intellectual in nature. In the field of intellectual property, we aim to propose solutions that are in line with customers’ needs, through advanced research, analysis, proposing intellectual property strategies and then implementing them.
We have many staff with qualifications awarded by external organizations including the National Center for Industrial Property Information and Training (INPIT), which is a prerequisite for receiving commissions for business related to the Japan Patent Firm. We also have many staff who have built up real world experience in the technology field including in research and development and making designs for mass production. They are knowledgeable in a wide range of technical fields.
We provide a valuable service through first seeking to understand the exact technology our customers hold, based on our abundant experience, and then making a close examination of it from the perspective of an examiner at the Japan Patent Firm.
※As of March 2018, according to our research
Within the Panasonic Group, there are as many as 100,000 patents, which demonstrates our significant track record in the management and operation of intellectual property. Through business activities in this field, we have an abundance of know-how learned in the real world, enabling us to do such things as improve business efficiency through systemization and use of appropriate tools, and establish the required organizational structures through the setting up of various systems, operations flows, etc.
In addition, regarding patent applications in the USA, China and other countries, we take advantage of the close relationship we have with local patent firms to develop a clear understanding of the patent laws and procedures in foreign countries, and of the most recent trends in these countries. In this way, we have established a structure that will reassure customers when they wish to acquire a patent overseas.
Our mission is to provide effective support for our customers through extracting the most value out of each patent to increase their corporate value.
We will propose the most appropriate analytical methods and research plan for your patent application, based on a full understanding of the technology held, and also taking into account product development and sales. As for the management of intellectual property, we will make proposals, such as setting up organizational structures to improve operations and make them more efficient, based on our know-how, experience and knowledge.
