Inpro is the former Intellectual Property Division of Elonex plc, now spun-off and existing as a group of separate, Luxembourg-based concerns. Inpro owns the former Elonex IP portfolio, and acquires interests in other technologies developed by third parties and works with corporate partners in realizing the value of IP. Inpro comprises the same team as devised and implemented the plan to realise the value of Elonex's Power Mangement Patents.

In the 1990s, Elonex developed an extensive patent portfolio in a number of areas, including Power Management. Power Management is the means by which a pc monitor “goes to sleep” while not in use, and “wakes up” quickly when required.

Power Management is valuable because monitors consume a lot of power, and waste energy when not in use. Government programmes such as ENERGYSTAR required that energy be conserved.

The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) adopted the “DPMS” standard as a means of achieving the required energy conservation. Elonex considered that the VESA DPMS standard read on its Power Management patents.

After licensing HP (US), Hitachi (Japan) and Nokia (Europe), Elonex launched two phases of Delaware proceedings against selected parties; and pursued a parallel licensing programme concurrently. Ultimately, licensees included the following companies and yielded over $100 million:
