Gain Insights Into the Future of Your Application
Get a clear direction toward success when drafting patent applications using Tech Center Navigator within LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® (formerly PathWays™).
Positively influence the likelihood your patent gets approved
Tech Center Navigator accurately predicts the path your application is expected to take at the USPTO, and helps guide you toward the best technology center group by characterizing your invention in a way that will get you the best patent in the shortest amount of time.
Draft your patent application to better target a favorable tech center group
For decades, patent professionals have been working under the assumption that all patent examiners at the USPTO behave, more or less, the same way or that there may be some variability across different art units. But, when it comes down to the examiners within a single tech center group, the belief is they tend to behave the same and it turns out this assumption does not align with the actual evidence. The proof is now evident and easily available with the exclusive Lottery Map™ metric available in the Tech Center Navigator.
Guide your application toward the most favorable art unit with advice from the experts experienced in assigning art units at the USPTO
LexisNexis® Intellectual Property Solutions has collaborated with Serco to provide customized Pre-Filing Classification Reports. Serco has classified over four million patent applications and has development domain knowledge in patent classification through their work as a classification provider to the USPTO over the past decade.
Avoid specific tech center groups for your invention
Tech Center Navigator offers insight and unique visualizations of the “character” of technology center groups to which your application is most likely to be assigned. This feature provides guidance on ideas and themes around how you should frame your invention to either target or avoid a specific tech center group to get you the best patent in the shortest amount of time.
