Anaqua, Inc., today announced that Japanese comprehensive heavy-industry manufacturer IHI Corporation will upgrade its IP management systems by moving to ANAQUA 9, Anaqua’s integrated software and services platform.

IHI, which provides a broad range of products such as power generation equipment, bridges, turbochargers and jet engines, has a robust IP portfolio, including patents and trademarks across various industrial fields.  The company selected Anaqua’s software in order to streamline and promote its IP management operations.
