Deutsche Telekom (DT) signalled it may be readying wider roll out of emerging productivity venture OneDock by seeking an international trademark on the brand.

An application covering OneDock’s light green and turquoise logo was filed in November 2019, according to the World Intellectual Property Organisation. It remains pending.

Little is yet known about OneDock, which offers a “desktop organiser” for users’ various cloud applications, as well as an aggregated search tool and 1Password-style app for managing their respective passwords. On its website, the business describes its software as “powered” by DT, and a piece by Romania’s IQads suggests it is a “project launched by DeutscheTelekom HQ”. It registered its website in spring 2019.

While the venture appears Germany-originated, little has yet been revealed regarding its set-up and plans. It appears to be targeting most of DT’s Europe NatCos for go‑to-market partnerships, and has reportedly been becoming more visible in Croatia, Hungary, and Romania.

Alexandru Isbasoiu, a OneDock-focused Business Development Manager at DT, indicated he was “acting within” the operator’s Business‑to-Business (B2B) Partnering team, and seeking ties with NatCo B2B units in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia.
