On 20 and 21 November 2023, Serviva GmbH was once again represented at Europe’s largest IP trade fair in Munich, IP Service World 2023.

We were there with our new stand, which received a very positive response from all sides.

Dr Lars Zanzig and Dr Raphael Jung were at our stand, where they had the opportunity to maintain customer relations and make new contacts.

Serviva GmbH will be present again next year at IP Service World in Munich.

Serviva GmbH – 15 years of success on the market 4

On March 9, 2006, Dr. Lars Zanzig and Dr. Raphael Jung founded Serviva GmbH, thus marking this year as the 15th anniversary of the company. The company’s initial focus on consulting services in the field of intellectual property management was quickly expanded to services in research, monitoring, as well as software distribution and integration. Offering excellent services with professional coworkers to a fair price determined the company’s philosophy from its very beginning and still holds truth today.

The new locations in Stuttgart and Munich as well as the subsidiary in Austria also enabled the continuous increase in the number of employees from initially four to more than 30 as of today.

“We are looking forward to more successful years with and for our customers!”


Dr. Lars Zanzig, Managing Director

Serviva – Experience Excellence.



The world of Intellectual Property (IP) has always been a pioneer in the global networking of people and ideas. The recent push towards decentralized and collaborative work is therefore only logical. Many professional tools are available for video conferencing and instant messaging communication, but does your IP management software in the company or law firm keep up with this pace of digitization? Does it also have the appropriate, secure technologies? Especially today, every department and every law firm needs a structure that enables decentralized work, e.g. from home, on the road or from several locations without complications, quality or security losses.

As a long-time partner of Patrix®, Serviva® has built up a wealth of experience in the field of remote working through a multitude of customer projects.

We know what you need to work well and efficiently. Suitably we offer the software tools that enable and support decentralized IP work.

Patricia® – In the latest version 6.0, the software Patricia® offers a variety of possibilities to enable decentralized IP work.

Patrica Extension “EDMS” – The extended document management system offers as an add-on the frequently desired feature of being able to access stored files and especially the associated documents from anywhere.

Patricia® Collaboration Portal (PCP) – This portal offers you secure access to the data you define from your intranet or from your demilitarized zone (DMZ) to the Internet.

Patent attorney Michael Fleuchaus outlines possible developments in the IP industry with regard to the home office and the changing requirements in an article worth reading.

Serviva® is the original service provider of the IP industry and will gladly support you with the introduction of tools and organisational structures that meet your needs.

Since March 2020 the completely newly developed Version 4.0 of the patent search software solution PATselect can be ordered.

“Our goal was to provide a clear and intuitively usable tool for users who regularly search for patent information. Our solution offers substantial advantages in terms of handling compared to the free offer of the patent offices”, explains the managing director Dr. Raphael Jung.

PATselect 4.0 is a web-based search solution, with which the search results can be marked simply and stored individually. The software interface can be used in 4 languages (German, English, French and Spanish). In addition, PATselect is characterised by a very favourable price. Further information about the product can be found here.

The software manufacturer Patrix® has announced the launch of Patricia 6.0. In addition to a desktop version, a browser version will be available to the user as an add-on. The desktop application provides new functions on top of the usual ones. The new browser application was developed with customer demands in mind and is characterized by a user-friendly interface, an improved design and time-saving functions.

Synchronized web and desktop releases

The 6.0 web browser application represents a valuable addition to the Patricia software, as it enables client users to access data in real-time through any computer or mobile devices with an internet connection. The two-factor authentification ensures a secure connection. Besides, when upgrading to Patricia 6.0, every customer will have the option to access their data via two user interfaces.

Patricia 6.0 presentation

The new system, with a focus on the new browser application, will be presented at the Patricia User Group forum in Gothenburg on 9-12 May. Any client users or interested party not attending can contact us via email at patricia-support@serviva.com to receive subsequent information.

From the 5th to the 7th of June 2019, Serviva GmbH was once again present as an exhibitor at the Patinfo Ilmenau. With over 350 participants and 40 exhibitors, this year’s motto was “IP and AI – Wishful Thinking or Reality” and the event’s main objective was to shed some light on the influence of artificial intelligence on the field of intellectual property rights.

Not only did Serviva participate for the tenth time in a row at the Patinfo, but it also co-sponsored Thursday’s evening event. The Patinfo in Ilmenau gave us the chance to meet with our current clients and to create new business relationships.

Dr. Raphael Jung, Managing Director of Serviva, points out: “We’re happy to announce that Serviva, Patrix’ longstanding German partner, will take over control and management of the Extended DMS product add-on to Patricia® from Practice Insight.
