inovia New York Office Powers on (Without Power) with a Little Help from Down Under
Team Worked Around the Clock to Ensure No Deadlines Were Missed
New York · November 12, 2012 · inovia, the leading foreign filing provider, was completely without power during the week of October 29 due to Hurricane Sandy. Despite the power outage, inovia's New York staff continued to run the business remotely (from cafés, libraries and home offices) without missing a beat. With all of inovia's IT infrastructure in "the cloud" and with help from inovia's Sydney team, who provided overnight support, the company kept their record of never having missed a deadline – in more than 10 years of operation – intact.
"Trust is a critical element to our business. When a client chooses to file their patent application through inovia, they trust that we will file that application by the deadline," said Justin Simpson, inovia's founder. "In our 10 years in business we have never missed a deadline and I am happy to say that even though our New York office building was without power, our global team worked tirelessly to ensure that it was business as usual for our clients."
