The relationship began early, explained Scott Kleppe, President and CEO of SENSIT Technologies. His parents contacted Hartman Global to see if SENSITs technology was patentable. They sat down with us, reviewed what we were doing, and helped us understand that our products were truly novel and provided legitimate value, Scott explained.
Engineering Expertise Hones Patents
Hartman Globals expertise also saves SENSIT time and money. Weve been involved with big city firms, but they required much more of our time to translate our ideas into legalese, Scott added. The approach used by Hartman Global is to dig in, understand everything, and not require lots of client time.
This proactive, passionate approach is crucial when obstacles arise. We recently had a patent application that was rejected twice, Scott said. Hartman Global initiated a
conference call with the reviewer and argued convincingly that SENSITs technology was different, novel, and worthwhile. Ultimately, the reviewer agreed and granted the patent. Hartman Global never gave up. They said, Yes, we really can win this, and they were right, he added.
Trademarks Protect Brand
SENSITs strong brand and arsenal of patents helped make the company attractive to the Crane Group, which acquired an interest in the company in late 2014. Hartman Global quickly facilitated the transfer of intellectual property ownership and recordation.
Over the last 15 years, our sales have grown a full magnitude larger. Our global reach includes 40 countries. Hartman Global has been there with us the entire way, Scott added.
