Reed Tech and PatentCore Launch Reed Tech Patent Advisor

Reed Technology and Information Services Inc., part of the LexisNexis® family and a leading provider of content management services, and PatentCore, a publisher of online patent office analytics, are pleased to announce the launch of Reed Tech Patent AdvisorTM information services, a family of on-line data intelligence tools for patent professionals.

The Patent Advisor service provides patent professionals with strategic insight based upon information gleaned from an analysis of more than 5 million patent applications. The new collection of on-line services expands upon the previously released Reed Tech Patent Application Reports with a variety of additional new and unique offerings. The listing of Patent Advisor services currently includes:

  • Patent Advisor Open Search Service
    This simple to use on-line search system provides instant access to comprehensive and dynamically updated performance data for every U.S. patent examiner and art unit. Reported performance attributes include, for example, data related to RCE turnaround time, allowance rates, and appeal process outcomes.
  • Patent Advisor Report Service
    This on-line service enables a user to select any patent application and quickly obtain a corresponding printable PDF application report that includes commentary and useful statistics that reveal what is “normal” for the examiner and the art unit assigned to the selected application.
  • Patent Advisor Corporate Dashboard Service
    Corporations now have easy on-line access to comprehensive and dynamically updated analysis of how different law firms, lawyers, examiners and art units have managed the assets in their own product portfolio or in one of their competitors.
  • Patent Advisor Law Firm Dashboard Service
    IP attorneys and their organizations can access this on-line service to quickly and easily compare their clients’ patent application statuses to a broad universe of metrics specific to the associated examiners and art units processing the applications. This information is useful for improving efficiency, for supporting marketing efforts, and for managing client expectations.

“We are excited to be working closely with PatentCore in bringing new and unique value to the IP community focused on managing their patent application portfolios and patent prosecution decisions,” said David Ballai, CIO & VP Commercial Solutions, Reed Technology. “Patent Advisor now helps our clients to make exceptionally informed decisions about their patent application management strategy, helping to shorten the prosecution cycle, improve the likelihood of a high-quality patent grant, and drive material cost efficiencies into the process.”

“Our collaboration with the team at Reed Technology draws together the strengths of a global service provider with a deep understanding of U.S. patent information processing with an IP business dedicated to the delivery of actionable business intelligence,” said Chris Holt, CEO at PatentCore. “The combination of business strengths will help to deliver to a big data solution designed to enable those in the IP community to benefit from a much deeper understanding of patent acquisition processes.”

ReedTech Patent Advisor™ delivers the ability to confidently make analytics-driven strategic decisions based on predictable patterns demonstrated by more than the 7,500 U.S. patent examiners during patent prosecution. The services also include tools for evaluating the relative efficiency with which companies and law firms obtain patents.

As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and t...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
