GlobalIPCo System

S&Z is the exclusive South African agent of GlobalIPCo – a provider of IP filing and management services. The GlobalIPCo system enables S&Z to manage large volumes of patents with low administrative overheads, thereby significantly reducing the cost of South African patents.

Expansion into other countries

During 2022 / 2023, the GlobalIPCo system will expand into other African countries / regions (namely, Nigeria, OAPI and ARIPO) with the goal of increasing the patent volumes in these territories.

Efficiency

The GlobalIPCo system not only reduces patent costs, it also reduces the time to courier the registered patent certificate by improving efficiencies throughout the patenting process.

New market

Instead of growing by taking market share from other South African patent law firms, S&Z’s growth is based on new filings from new markets. As a result, S&Z’s patent filings have increased the total number of South African patent applications by more than 25%.
