IDS Management

IPDAS organizes and streamlines your firm's citation management, including:

  • All references cited or to be cited in a case can be recorded in IPDAS and will flow to members of the family and subject matter group.

  • Personnel can also link PDFs of foreign patents, non-patent literature references, and translations directly to the corresponding citations in IPDAS.

  • PDFs have to be linked to a reference only once, and that link flows to every other case citing that reference.

  • Detailed status tracking of each reference enables firms to confirm they are thoroughly cross-citing references across families and subject matter groups.

  • Bulk import tools allow personnel to import from spreadsheets, MS Word tables and PTO SB-08s directly into the IPDAS record, and import references for issued patents directly from the USPTO.

  • IPDAS downloads PDFs of foreign patents and their translations from Espacenet either individually or in bulk.

  • Patent Center Upload: when personnel upload an IDS to Patent Center, IPDAS not only uploads the IDS, but all linked PDFs associated with the IDS (such as foreign patents, NPL documents, or translations). This is accomplished all with one automated upload.
