Frequently Asked Questions
How much extra hardware and software will we need to buy
to use RevaTrademark?
Probably none. RevaTrademark runs on the Windows PCs you already
own. (See specific requirements below.)
We don't have a SQL Server at our firm. Can we still use
Yes. You can download SQL Server 2012
Express and SQL Server Management Studio Express from our website when you
license the full version of RevaTrademark. These programs turn a PC into a SQL
Server. The setup includes video tutorials on how to set up SQL Server and the
Is there a per-user or per-record fee?
No. Our prices are based on the number of trademarks and patents you
can enter into the system, but you are not charged for each user, or
for each new record. You can load the client software on as many PCs
as you choose.
How much do you charge for training and support?
Our technical support is free. We believe software manufacturers owe
it to their clients to provide assistance when it's necessary.
RevaTrademark includes several video tutorials that can be accessed
from the Help menu and provide comprehensive training on the system.
New users can simply watch the videos, then practice what they've
learned by logging into the demo database. As a result, we receive
very few calls for help.
What if we expand our practice beyond the number of
trademarks and patents allowed?
If you reach the limit of your installation, you can upgrade to the
next level by paying the difference in the price.
Is there a yearly subscription fee?
No. Once you've licensed your copy of RevaTrademark, you're done
paying for it. When we release future versions, we'll offer existing
customers a steep discount on upgrades.
Can we make payments on a system?
Yes. You can divide the license fee into four or six monthly
payments if you prefer.
Is this a web application? Can I use RevaTrademark from a
RevaTrademark is not a web application, but you can use it remotely.
You can use a virtual private network, or give your server an
internet address and connect to it through the internet. Another
easy option is to simply log in to your office PC using Citrix or
GoToMyPC, which is a consumer-level version of Citrix. Citrix and
GoToMyPC even allow you to log in to your office PC from an Apple
Can we allow some users to view the data but not alter it?
RevaTrademark allows you to add users to different roles with
different permisisons. One role allows users full database access,
another allows full access minus the ability to delete records, and
the third role is view-only ... that is, users can view records, run
searches, and print reports, but they can't add, edit, or delete
We've been keeping our data in spreadsheets. Do we have to
re-type it all?
Our programmers can import existing data from several formats, including
spreadsheets and other databases. If your current data is in a consistent
format, we'll import it at no charge.
