In keeping with Kenya’s position as one of the most technologically innovative African countries and the source of M-PESA, a mobile phone based money transfer and micro-financing service, the Kenya Industrial Property Institute (“KIPI”), in a bid to improve service delivery, has launched a new mobile short text message service (sms) based system that allows clients to query the status of pending trade mark, patent, utility model and industrial design applications at the Institute, from their mobile phones.

“It is not clear how well the system will work and how detailed the information retrieved from the system will be but we applaud KIPI on its attempts to improve service delivery to its users in this unique fashion” says Simon Brown, partner and chairman of Adams & Adams Africa Strategy Committee.

This technology is intended to improve the turnaround time in obtaining status reports from KIPI. Adams & Adams will monitor these positive developments as it endeavours to continue to provide its clients with the best possible service.
