AOP Continues to Develop Solutions Based on Client Needs for IP Business Solutions

BONITA SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 8, 2016) - Article One Partners (AOP), the world's largest patent research community and pioneer in crowd-based prior art searching, is the market leader in providing customized patent research and analytics solutions for blue chip corporations worldwide. AOP continues to revolutionize the market with the newest release of AOP Connect: Spotlight. With this release our clients will be able to quickly identify the salient portion of any reference against the requirements of the study allowing for significant efficiency and review improvements.

According to Peter Vanderheyden, AOP's President, "At AOP we are driven by our goal to continuously provide business-critical solutions to our Clients. This new 'Spotlight' tool was designed to make the research review process very efficient saving up to 80% in review time and thousands of dollars in review cost."

Additional capabilities and naming of this release include:

  • Highlighting (Spotlight): This feature allows researchers to identify the precise text or images that apply to a given research requirement. Spotlight can provide a "claim chart" like view of the reference corpus based on researcher digital curation as well as allow you to modify researcher highlighting with your own highlights.
  • Rank: Using simple sets of keywords you can create heat maps of the references that help you quickly assess their relevance to your needs and bring the most valuable references to your immediate attention. You even get a glimpse into the keywords in the context of the reference.
  • Reader: Reader allows you to see the digitized version of the reference with keywords highlighted for quick access. 
  • Search: AOP Connect also includes powerful search capabilities allowing you to access and re-use the prior art from one matter to the next.

A key researcher commented, "The tool was great... I thought it was intuitive and easy. Thanks!"

Spotlight and all the above features of AOP Connect enhance the value of the client's work providing precise insight and knowledge around the research set, saving time and money. Spotlight is available on every new study and on AOP Private Platform, a private version of our market leading platform which allows you to create and manage studies for your internal researchers, engineers, scientists and retirees.
