NORTH QUINCY, Mass., April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson CompuMark, a business of the Intellectual Property & Science division of Thomson Reuters and the global leader in trademark searching and brand protection solutions, today announced the launch of its new Watch on SERION® Advanced. This enhanced service for trademark professionals provides instant access to critical watch intelligence – via a computer or through mobile smartphones– for timely fact finding.
"With ever-increasing workloads and resource constraints, trademark professionals need innovative solutions for getting more done in less time," said Shawn O'Brien, director of Product Development for Thomson CompuMark. "New Watch on SERION Advanced addresses this need with powerful capabilities that significantly enhance speed and efficiency, while giving users greater certainty about potential trademark conflicts. We will continue to extend the capabilities of Watch on SERION to help our clients make more informed decisions and save valuable time."
Designed for trademark professionals and teams managing significant watch portfolios, Watch on SERION Advanced provides greater power and efficiency. Key features include:
- Mobile access to watch records. Watch on SERION Advanced is optimized for use with leading smartphones, enabling business representatives to review watch findings and share information with colleagues – anytime, anywhere. Mobile activity is automatically synchronized with the user's Watch on SERION online history.
- Historical watch information. Customers can see if a mark identified in a watch notice has been reported in the past. This saves time and provides insight into whether the use of a mark is expanding – an important piece of information for managing trademark portfolios.
- Instant access to related contextual information. Watch on SERION Advanced provides single-click access to a mark on the web, as well as trademark office records and relevant industry-specific web links. These insights can be invaluable, helping professionals make more informed decisions about marks, without the need for time-consuming searches.
- Enhanced report generation. Create and send reports on significant findings quickly, in either a "Record" or "Table" format. Searchers may also export Goods text, complete with highlighting and opinions, for quick and easy pinpointing of significant information.
Trademark professionals can use these advanced capabilities as part of their existing Watch on SERION subscription until their portfolio renewal date.
