HORSHAM, Pa., October 23, 2014—LexisNexis IP announced the availability of PAIR Watch℠, the only patent monitoring service with the ability to fully automate bulk public patent application tracking for hundreds or thousands of patent applications. Designed to manage the time-consuming task of tracking patent applications, PAIR Watch monitors the public Patent Application Information Retrieval (PAIR) database and sends alerts to subscribers via email whenever changes take place to the Image File Wrapper, Continuity Data or Transaction History of the specified watched applications.
What used to be a manual process can now be completely automated for a single application or on an enterprise level for a large volume of applications. Because months can pass between incremental changes in status, PAIR Watch minimizes errors or omissions in patent application tracking, especially for corporations, law firms and other organizations that may be monitoring a number of their own, clients’ or competitors’ patent applications.
“PAIR Watch provides peace of mind for our customers who rely on patent docket monitoring to better manage the intellectual property process, regardless of the number of patent applications being tracked,” says Ethan Eisner, Vice President of Strategy and Go To Market at LexisNexis IP. “It’s a truly reliable, affordable—and now scalable—service for which the industry has had a need for quite some time.”
PAIR Watch can be configured to send email alerts to multiple individuals in the patent monitoring workflow based on the needs of the organization. Status checks can be performed monthly, weekly or even daily.
PAIR Watch is part of a comprehensive and growing portfolio of IP solutions, including LexisNexis TotalPatent®, LexisNexis PatentAdvisor℠, LexisNexis PatentOptimizer™, LexisNexis IP DataDirect and IP Services (formerly ReedFax®), designed to ease intellectual property professionals’ access to patent authority information and enable better strategic decisions.
