About Us

Serving the Intellectual Property industry since 1968

Computer Packages Inc (CPI) is a privately owned IP management company, with over 50 years experience serving the IP community. The company started in 1968 when our founder, Jerry Van Winter, developed the very first patent management system. Ten years later, in 1978, CPI began providing patent annuity payment services upon request from clients. To this day all products and services are still fully developed in-house, now by the next generation of expert CPI programmers. 

Mission Statement

Our mission is to be the most trusted partner in safeguarding clients’ IP assets with innovative IP management software and annuity services.

Client feedback and requests remain at the forefront of inspiration for product development. CPI continues to specialize in IP patent, trademark, and annuity management. Its product suite has been expanded to include IP solutions tailored to improve all aspects of business management.
