Lawtomata PTOFlow is a cloud-based workflow tool that accelerates the processing and reporting of incoming communications from the PTO. With just a few clicks, PTOFlow ingests incoming documents (e.g., filing receipts, office actions, notices of allowance); spots issues; generates template reporting letters and responses; and fetches relevant prior art documents. Firms can expect significant speedups compared to manual processing.
Using PTOFlow is easy. The user drags and drops a PDF received from the PTO. Using machine learning, PTOFlow processes the incoming document, determines metadata, spots issues, and finds prior art references. Next PTOFlow walks the user through the document, allowing them to touch up any issues we spotted or adding any issues that we may have missed. When the user is finished, PTOFlow generates relevant template documents, including reporting letters/emails, amendment templates, or docket slips. PTOFlow also fetches any prior art documents. PTOFlow then provides everything in a single ZIP file.
