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.
