AppColl Prosecution Manager
Manage Your IP Portfolio with Precision

For Law Firms or Corporate Patent Professionals

AppColl Prosecution Manager is a cloud-based, Intellectual property management software suite designed to significantly increase productivity while reducing both the costs and risks of running a patent firm or corporate IP group.

We talked to many patent attorneys, patent agents, paralegals and docketing specialists about what they want in Intellectual property management software and why other tools fall short. In response, we developed a cost effective, simple to use patent & trademark docketing system that immediately makes you more productive and better organized, using automation wherever possible.

AppColl’s patent & trademark management tools provide all essential IP management functions including docketing tasks, contacts, matters, document storage, billing, prior art and reporting. Generate popular PTO forms populated with information from your account with a single click. Create great looking invoices designed for IP attorneys. AppColl integrates with the USPTO’s Private Pair, TSDR, EPO Espacenet and Google patent databases to allow for automated account setup and docket updates.

 Our goal is to let you achieve more in less time while improving accuracy.

TASKS

Built on a powerful and flexible workflow engine, the Tasks module automates the docketing and workflow activities that you’d expect. AppColl provides out-of-the-box docketing tasks for US patents and trademarks and PCT patent applications. Workflows and docketing tasks can be customized and extended. Workflows for international filings can be easily added.


MATTERS

Maintain and capture all your IP in a central location. Easily see all your patents, trademarks, copyrights, domains, NDAs, licensing agreements and litigation. Transfer your existing patents and trademarks to AppColl with ease. Most cases can be imported from the USPTO or EspaceNet with only an application or serial number.




PRIOR ART

Easily maintain and manage all your prior art. See what art has been cited to what matters, what art needs to be cited and which references have been considered by the examiner. Within seconds you can cross cite hundreds or references to a new application and generate an IDS (Form SB08). Save hours of manually data entry with a few mouse clicks.


FILES

AppColl’s document management solution allows you to store you practice in the cloud. Drag and drop official correspondence, client communication, emails, presentations, submissions, prior art and more. Store multiple revisions of each document. Attach files directly to tasks. Create as many folders are desired. Email documents directly into AppColl.


BILLING

Easily track your time and bill your client with professional looking invoices and LEDES (1998b and Ver. 2.0) files, create retainers, record payments and make money. No need to pay for expensive add-on billing systems when AppColl has it all built-in.





REPORTS

Quickly create the reports you need for clients or internal use. Reports can be created and easily run at a later time to view the most up to date information. Reports can be scheduled to run on a regular basis and emailed to anyone as PDF documents or spreadsheets. AppColl can also transfer reports to a secure location via SFTP.




CONTACTS

Maintain a full database of inventors, clients, attorneys, outside counsel and other important contacts. Import existing contact databases from spreadsheets or email lists. Enabling logins only requires a few button clicks. Carefully configure permissions for everyone that logs into your AppColl account..
