It's not easy for any company, even a Fortune 500 company, to stand out against the backdrop of the digital revolution. But Quanta Computer’s commitment to patenting the technologies of tomorrow earned the company a spot on Clarivate’s “Top 100 Global Innovators” list for the fifth year in a row.
Rising to the top
Quanta’s commitment to bringing high-performing emerging technology products and services to its customers helps the company to continually strengthen its position in the marketplace. Along the way, Quanta has earned awards for its innovative approaches to technology production and global trade.
A particularly impressive recent recognition is Quanta’s spot on Clarivate’s “Top 100 Global Innovators” list. Clarivate, a leading publisher of science and technology analytics, uses rigorous methodology to qualify companies for this exclusive list—each business must boast more than 500 filed and 100 granted inventions that stand out for their influence, success, global reach, and rarity.
Quanta has been recognized by Clarivate for five straight years—a testament to the power of its collaboration with Nixon Peabody.
Patents pave the way to growth
Quanta’s success grew as portable technology and connectivity became the new normal, but the company continued its drive to capture the next frontier. Quanta began exploring opportunities to grow—and monetize—its intellectual property portfolio.
Nixon Peabody recognizes that patents should be revenue-generating assets and was proud to team up with Quanta on this effort to expand and further commercialize its intellectual property portfolio.
The firm used its dynamic Patent Mining Workshops, working with a diverse team from Quanta, to adopt an inventor mindset, predict industry trends, block competitors, identify variations, and alternative uses of inventions, and ultimately create technology that can be protected and monetized. As a result, Quanta’s patent portfolio expanded, and the company filed hundreds of applications in the span of a decade.
By leveraging intellectual property as a tool for revenue growth, Quanta has been able to generate significant licensing revenue from its patent portfolio.
Ahead of the curve
Quanta, a Taiwan-based computer hardware manufacturer founded in 1988, got its start producing notebook computers.
This approach was novel at the time, as few homes had personal computers, and those that did favored bulky desktops. Quanta knew it wouldn’t thrive simply by focusing on the status quo—it had to prepare for the future.
By maintaining a laser focus on innovation and R&D, Quanta expanded its market share by becoming a pioneer of the internet era, diving headfirst into cloud computing, mobile communications, smart home products, and other technologies that have redefined our lives at work and home.
Nixon Peabody is proud to be a part of Quanta’s evolution as an internationally recognized powerhouse in the technology space.
