UST's intelligent brand protection application transformed operations at brand management company

UST built and deployed a robust and intelligent brand protection solution that streamlined and automated monitoring and violation enforcement workflows.


As a document management and intellectual property (IP) leader, this technology company employs dozens of people and generates millions in revenue annually.


IP management company wanted to automate manual, labor-intensive processes with online monitoring application

Our client wanted to automate its legal analysis department's manual, labor-intensive processes to identify and remediate unauthorized IP violations across different online platforms, such as plagiarism and trademark infringement. The ideal monitoring solution would provide the company’s legal team with functionality, like domain page scanning for keyword matches and web page change tracking, to safeguard the online brands of its customers efficiently. Because our client did not have an internal IT department and had negative experiences with IT outsourcing, company leaders wanted a highly-skilled application development partner with deep agile experience, a proven Scrum methodology, and exceptional UI/UX design capabilities.

The project team built and deployed an intelligent brand protection application that automatically initiated enforcement actions customized for each end-user client.

Robust reporting gave company leaders and customer account managers data on case statistics, compliance rates, and audience insights.


Automated processes and data-driven insights helped IP tech company transform brand management

With a solution hailed by our client as “revolutionary, innovative, and convenient,” the company now has standardized, streamlined, automated workflows to monitor online IP and enforce violations for its customers. The intuitive dashboard, comprehensive case data, and insightful reports have helped the company increase operational efficiencies, improve transparency, and boost customer satisfaction.
