IP Forecaster: PCT Workflow Improvements

IP Forecaster trademark fees

We’ve introduced several subtle enhancements to our PCT forecasting process. We’ve cleaned up the request process to make selecting your receiving office and ISA easier. We now default to ePCT and have improved the look and feel of our forecast output. Stay tuned – a lot more PCT updates are coming throughout January and February!

Platform Update: Easier Associate Fee Customization

IP Forecaster fee linking

When linking custom fees to PTO fees, it was hard to find the right fee if a PTO had different fees for entity size and transmission time (like the US). Now, we give you all the information you could ask for – making it easy to link your custom fee to a PTO fee.

IP Forecaster: Client-specific Fees in Trademark Forecasts

IP Forecaster PCT

Late last year, we added the ability to have client-specific fees in patent forecasts. We have now brought the same functionality to trademarks, allowing you to configure client-specific fees, discounts, and even client-specific associates.

IP Forecaster: Anonymize Law Firm Fees

IP Forecaster

There are times when you want to see which associate was used in a forecast and times when you don’t (like when you send it to a client). You could manually remove the associate names, but that would suck, so we’ve added an Anonymizer to our export. With one click, your exports are scrubbed clean.

IP Forecaster: Associate Claim Cost Customization

IP Forecaster

Many international associates charge additional fees based on the number of claims. This week, we’ve made adding and configuring claims-based fees easy. Simply click “Claims-based pricing,” and you can configure the cost for additional sets of claims.

IP Forecaster: Improved Forecast Output

IP Forecaster

After several “improvements,” our results screen had become a bit of a hot mess. So, we took some time to clean things up. We no longer repeat the currency code a million times and have added subtotals, better column alignment, and a summary of the application details. Bellissima!

Strategic Planner: New Data Table View

IP Forecaster

Charts are nice, but sometimes you just need the data. This week, we added a table view of costs to our planner page. In February, we will be adding spreadsheet functionality to the planner, making it easy to visualize your data in an MS Excel-like format.

IP Forecaster: Link Law Firm Fees to Multiple PTO Fees

IP Forecaster

A long time ago, in a land far away, we added the ability to link a law firm fee to a PTO fee so that they appeared together on a forecast. That worked great until clients needed to link a single fee to small, large, and micro-entity USPTO fees. Now, you can connect a single law firm fee to as many PTO fees as you would like, and everything shows up in the right place at the right time.

We are starting to create dedicated workflows tailored specifically to these requirements – our National Phase Wizard is the first of several. Set your target national phase entry date, select your countries, enter some application details and you are good to go. Fast!

IP Forecaster: Receiving Office and ISA combinations

IP Forecaster

If you do PCT forecasts, you know that your international search authority is tied to your receiving office. Until this release, you were responsible for entering valid combinations of receiving office and ISA. Now, we keep track of all of that. Enter your receiving office and we will make sure you don’t select Burundi as your ISA.

IP Forecaster: Improved Forecast Request Interface

IP Forecaster request

We’ve added a lot of features to IP Forecaster over the last couple of months, so the screens were getting to be a hot mess. No more!

IP Forecaster Update: Simplified Priority Workflow

IP Forecaster Priority

We added the ability to manage law firm fees for multiple priorities in November, but, as we’ve used it over the last couple of months, we’ve come to hate the way we implemented it. So, we made it 100% more awesome this week. You now have one spot to enter your number of priorities and it will pull together all your associate and PTO costs. Simple. Clean. Done.
