MicroPatent Enhances Patent Alerts

MicroPatent, a subsidiary of Information Holdings, Inc., announced a series of PatSearch FullText and patent alert enhancements that are designed to extend users' competitive intelligence monitoring and improve their work-flow efficiencies. The company has added 50 patent alerts to each PatSearch FullText annual subscription and redesigned its Search History interface, making it easier for customers to track a technology or company, as well as to manage search strategies and create complex ones. These improvements are complimentary and automatically included in all PatSearch FullText accounts.

MicroPatent alerts monitor patent activity by company, technology, or industry according to the user's specifications. The system automatically runs the alert strategies on a weekly or monthly basis, tracking the latest full-text publications and grants, and notifies customers via e-mail of matching hits. The new alert service features a summarized table from which editing, cloning, suspending, and deleting is done. Two new delivery formats are available, comma separated (.csv) and WorkSheets, in addition to the existing .pdf and .txt options. WorkSheets enable first-level analysis through sorting, reporting, graphing, and exporting. Other new features include the ability to incorporate a custom cover sheet for each alert and to designate an unlimited number of recipients.

The company claims that PatSearch FullText is the largest commercially-searchable full-text patent database in the world, covering the four main patent authorities, the United States (US), Europe (EP), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and Japan (JP), as well as Germany (DE) and Great Britain (GB). Records date back to the early 1800s.
