Pros: Cloud-based document management system facilitating electronic filing and going paper-free; most aspects of system can be customized; excellent user-friendly web-based interface facilitating cross-platform use.

Cons: There are certain refinements needed in a few areas such as the customization options in respect of automatic e-mail uploading into case management system - at the moment user needs to adopt a very specific format in the subject line for this to work. Also the summaries in respect of professional time recording could be expanded upon to provide useful stats such as average hours billed per day, etc. That said, the development team do incorporate feedback from users and the system is constantly and rapidly improving. With time I expect that many of these refinements will be applied.

Overall: Having recently established a new firm as a British and European Patent Attorney, I chose Equinox over outdated IP management software solutions such as Patricia owing to it being web-based, incorporating a cloud-based document management system and providing all the features a firm of British and European Patent Attorneys requires, such as docketing, e-mail and Word integration including document creation, invoicing, billing history, customization, etc. The team at Equinox provides an annual conference showcasing future releases and development. They are encouragingly youthful, enthusiastic about their product and energetic, and this is reflected in the rate of development of this new platform. Just like Xero increased market share in the UK and elsewhere by providing an excellent cloud-based software platform and out-innovating outdated rival solutions, I expect more and more patent firms around the world will subscribe to Equinox in favour of the existing and outdated IP management software solutions. The future looks bright for Equinox and I would highly recommend it.

Pros: The software is very user friendly and adaptable to suit the need of a small in-house IP team.

It is easy to customise the matter fields and tasks to suit our working practices.

The report generator function is very useful for instant and up-to-date snapshots of different aspects of the patent portfolio

Cons: Some of the default pre-sets needed a bit of tinkering, but as mentioned above, this was straightforward and the Equinox support team have been very helpful.

The "manage citations" function doesn't really work to e.g. track sending citations to US, IL etc - we still run a separate spreadsheet

Overall: Fantastic. All the attorneys and the patent administrator at Autolus use Equinox on a daily basis and think it is a great system. The support team have been extremely helpful and responsive to our queries.

Pros: It's friendly and easy to use, it's always accessible via the Internet, the support team are great (attentive and full of solutions), it's excellent for producing reports, importing them and send to client or for my own use.

Cons: The new format is less appealing to me. It does not give full accounting support because of the VAT in Israel. We cannot use it to issue tax invoice/receipt to clients therefore we have to use a complementary software

Pros: The system is easy to access and relatively easy to use. Creating a case and family is straightforward and fields are easily edited.

The search function makes it simple to find cases and with a simple click you can view the case and the family to which it belongs.

The report function is very intuitive and custom reports are easy to build.

Cons: I had difficulty with more unusual issues. For example, when an inventor is linked to more than one applicant.

I think that the screen for entering the address of a client could be improved.

I have not been able to add fields, for example a new status of say "Allowed".

Indicating relationships for continuation and divisional applications is missing.

Overall: What I most appreciate about Equinox, as a beginner user, is the excellent service of the support team.

Pros: Its ease of use. It is intuitive and easy to navigate. The support team when we do have queries are superb. Very quick to respond and address the queries.

Cons: There are a few things we could tweak to suit (e.g. having 2 currencies and charge out rates as defaults etc) but on the whole, this is a good piece of software.

Marvellous

Pros: Simplicity. The software is very fluid and just simply works. Minor tweaks 'needed' to customise it are very easy to carry out and it's cloud based.

Cons: Adding charges and billing isn't great but it still works.

Overall: Superb, they are a great team and very proactive.
