125 Years of
Pioneering Inventions
On January 29, 1886, Daimler co-founder Carl Benz filed a patent for a “three-wheeled vehicle powered by a gas engine” at the German Imperial Patent Office in Berlin, which is still considered to be the birth certificate of the motor vehicle. Since then, Daimler has filed over 80,000 patent applications worldwide.

The
Challenge
Quickly and seamlessly
integrate a new IP management system
Prepare and train users
Around 300 users had to be prepared for the system changeover and trained to configure and use the Unycom system in order to achieve both maximal user acceptance and motivation.
No impact on daily business
The new system had to be implemented as quickly and smoothly as possible, without affecting daily business operations. This required a well-planned implementation project.
Migrate a large volume of data
27 different file types, including all the related data and documentation, had to be migrated from the existing system to the Unycom system – without any data loss or drop in efficiency.
The
Result
One of the most successful
implementation projects in
Unycom’s history
High user acceptance
The training of system users and administrators was well executed and led to a very high level of acceptance and motivation among Daimler employees. The change in systems was widely appreciated.
Smooth integration
Thanks to a clear and realistic project schedule that was tailored to Daimler’s needs, the IP department was able to go live only 12 months after system selection, without any impact on everyday operations.
Successful migration
On one intensive weekend, 1,400,000 files, 90,000 person records, 450,000 time limits and 2,500,000 documents were migrated successfully from the former system to the Unycom solution – with only a single weekday of downtime.
The successful start
of a promising partnership
