Global Exchange Payment Solutions Creates First US Patent and Trademark Office Payment Solution for the Legal Industry

April 16, 2019

BALA CYNWYD, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 16, 2019--Global Exchange Payment Solutions (Global Exchange), an international payment solutions leader, announced today a new solution to offer law firms a fully automated US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) Payment Solution. The solution is the product of a collaboration between FLEETCOR subsidiary Comdata. Global Exchange has developed the first platform that allows law firms to seamlessly reconcile USPTO transactions, automate files, and pay the USPTO electronically with Comdata’s virtual Mastercard® payments system.

The Global Exchange USPTO payment solution is commensurate with high quality workflow advantages Global Exchange’s current and future clients will benefit from. Moving forward, Global Exchange will go beyond offering its integrated international payment and check elimination solutions to professional services firms.

“We’re excited to offer the legal industry the first fully integrated solution for USPTO payments and systems integration,” said Global Exchange Managing Director, Anthony Loiacono. “Our clients asked for a US Patent and Trademark solution that would help make paying USPTO by credit card less manual and more efficient – while integrating seamlessly into their billing system. This cutting-edge product has been fueled by our constant focus on providing our clients with the very best in technology and innovation to ensure we remain at the forefront of the payments industry.”

“We worked to make our product intuitive and user friendly – while effectively reconciling between a card solution and an integrated billing process,” said Craig Klein, Vice President of Information Technology at Global Exchange. “This platform is one-of-a-kind and will drive real efficiencies for law firms and their clients.”

The USPTO Payment Solution fully automates the complex and time-consuming task of manually reconciling USPTO Fee codes with time and billing matter codes – against docketing. The Global Exchange platform will create an automated data validation procedure for matter and docket validation files – and include a card payment platform using Comdata’s Mastercard payments system. A custom rebate program repatriates revenue directly back to the firm for 100% of its USPTO spend.
