Data Entry and Searching Available in PATTSY for Windows

Data Entry
PATTSY's signature single screen design makes entry and retrieval of information intuitive and easy. All information including the filing particulars, actions due, and supporting information (such as patent inventors and trademark goods descriptions) are readily accessible on one screen. The more cumbersome navigational requirements in competing systems (sometimes requiring navigation through a half dozen equivalent screens) are inconvenient at minimum. At worst, the inefficiencies become crippling, especially in an already over-taxed docketing department. But with PATTSY, auto-population of related case information for international filings coupled with PATTSY's powerful Autodocket feature eases the otherwise time consuming task of manual entry.

Advanced Search Tool
PATTSY's advanced search tool takes the complexity out of complex search criteria. Although simple search capabilities (e.g., on a case number or serial number) is typically available, few competing systems offer an equivalent Advanced Search when multiple or complex criteria is introduced. The advanced search tool in PATTSY owes its simplicity to a "query by example" approach (i.e., one where the layout and content of the search screen mirrors the screen where information is entered).

After an Advanced Search is performed, the resulting data can be viewed record-by-record or displayed in tabular view (i.e., a spreadsheet like layout). The table can be sorted and column selection custom configured. Finally, the search results can populate a fully configurable Quick Report and exported to Word, Excel, or a PDF in a single click.
