With PracticeLink Capture, IP prosecution teams no longer have to assign staff to log in to the USPTO web site multiple times a day — or vigilantly monitor shared email inboxes for correspondence — to manually download multiple files, upload them to their document management system, and send emails and paper copies to firm and client stakeholders. Instead, this all happens automatically, with zero intervention or overhead.
Three available PracticeLink Capture modules enable firms to automate intake and internal routing of documents and detail sourced from USPTO web sites and inbound email:
PAIRCapture (PAIRLink) – downloads and routes statutory patent-related documents from the private PAIR web site
MarkCapture (TSDRLink) – executes the analogous automation and flow of information from the Trademark Status and Document Retrieval System (TSDR)
CorrespondenceCapture (Email Intake) – monitors inbound email, executing categorization and routing processes based on applicable contextReplacing the need to manually navigate the USPTO Private PAIR web site
In addition to boosting efficiency, PracticeLink Capture also mitigates multiple risks, including errors and omissions tied to manual document processing, and even the USPTO itself. And the system also offers specialized functionality to streamline matter intake for lateral hires.
