The Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys wanted a ‘not-a-membership-database’ – “We see “membership bodies and associations as being about much more than membership. We employ people. We buy stuff. We sell stuff. We manage knowledge. We are business and we need to manage data across the entire business. I was looking for a total business solution and the only approach that came close to meeting my needs was AgileBase”. Lee Davies, CEO

We provided a platform that was flexible, fast and friendly that CIPA could use to increase understanding of their members and underpin process improvements.



CIPA in Numbers


members and contacts


countries across the globe




The benefits of agileBase for CIPA are that it’s

  • flexible – the system provides the flexibility necessary to meet CIPA’s unique needs. It’s able to match exactly the processes they want to use, e.g. membership renewals and event bookings, not have processes forced on them by ‘packaged’ software
  • fast – new modules can be created very rapidly, as the system expands to deal with new areas of the organisation, like HR
  • friendly – the user interface is so intuitive that it’s a joy to work with. New users can be on-boarded with a minimum of fuss

Hopefully this is just the start of the journey. Now that the platform is up and running, CIPA can use it to increase understanding of their members as well as continuing to update their own processes
