SEATTLE, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Patent Navigation Inc. today opens access to TurboPatent®, the first, fully-automated patent application production and prosecution solution. TurboPatent is designed by patent attorneys for patent attorneys to minimize their time and expense associated with preparing and prosecuting patent applications that meet high standards of legal and technical quality.
TurboPatent is a secure, cloud-based, collaborative platform that automates the tedious, labor-intensive, and error-prone tasks involved in preparing and prosecuting patents. As a result, TurboPatent cuts patent production time in half, while dramatically reducing errors and rejections.
"TurboPatent lets me focus on the intellectual components of patent drafting without getting bogged down in tedious formatting, word processing, and document preparation tasks," said Janina Malone, Patent Attorney. "It lets me spend my time on the work that provides the most value for my clients."
TurboPatent is a powerful suite of integrated tools with an interface that is easy to learn and use. It features a USPTO-compliant drawing tool, a claims drafting and amending tool, and a specification drafting tool, all with auto-formatting, auto-generation of content, and synchronized terminology and numbering that maintains consistency across the entire application. It also features a data-driven USPTO forms generator.
Prior to TurboPatent, patent professionals lacked access to special-purpose patent-drafting and prosecution tools, instead using general-purpose tools such as Word™ (text) and Visio™ (drawings), and sharing intellectual property documents back and forth over open email networks. This is inefficient and highly insecure.
"Unlike so many other professions, patent attorneys have not had an automated solution," said James Billmaier, Patent Navigation CEO. "Think about it…no architectural or engineering firm could remain competitive without utilizing CAD tools. We want legal professionals to benefit from automation tools in the same way."
TurboPatent not only enables attorneys to be more competitive, but it also allows their clients to remain competitive in an increasingly crowded business landscape. According to a U.C. Berkeley study, 82% of early stage tech ventures have patentable IP, yet only 24% protect it due to cost.
"Today's market demands greater output for less money," said Britten Sessions, author of Patent Practice and Director of the IP Clinic at Lincoln Law School. "TurboPatent enables me to increase my workload, maintain high quality production, and decrease time spent per matter. In short, it allows me to offer more for less."
Patent Navigation's attorney network has filed and prosecuted hundreds of patents using TurboPatent over the last six months. Today, TurboPatent is being made available to any qualified patent professional free of charge through September 1, 2015.
