Wellogix Awarded U.S. Patent
|Monday, June 05, 2006
Wellogix has received a major U.S. patent for its technology surrounding "complex business project workflow." Over thirty (30) claims were granted for the technology that broadly encompasses Internet commerce for effecting work orders, field tickets, invoicing, the versioning of such events, and reconciliation of such documents into an ERP system.
Ike Epley, CEO of Wellogix, said, "We have spent tens of millions of dollars and over five years in the development and commercialization of our technology. We are pleased that this patent protects several of the core requirements of executing a complex business process and that although we are currently focused with the energy industry, our patent and technology are not in any way industry-specific."
"U.S. Patent No. 7,043,486 is at the forefront of Wellogix' technology portfolio, which also includes additional patent applications that have been allowed and will soon be issued as United States Patents," said Guy Matthews of Matthews, Lawson, Bowick & Al-Azem, PLLC, who represent Wellogix in matters of trademarks, copyrights and patents.
"We believe that this development goes a long way in providing clarity in the marketplace for both our current and prospective clients who are investigating ways to become more effective businesses, and who now can license patented technology to accomplish that goal," concluded Epley.
