Patent attorneys and agents can draft a single set of software method claims and send it to Specifio via email or from within Microsoft Word by using the BluePencil add-in. Specifio can automatically convert 2-3 pages of attorney-drafted claims into a 20-30 page first-draft patent application, which is sent back to the practitioner via email as a password protected ZIP file attachment.
Specifio’s auto-generated specifications provide a partially completed framework, which an attorney or agent can then bolster and finalize with his or her own high value added edits and additions. Each section of the auto-generated draft will be complete and ready-to-file except for the Background section and the Detailed Description section, which includes auto- generated system and method descriptions. Descriptions of example embodiments will need to be added to the auto-draft by the practitioner. Specifio’s application documents also include auto-generated basic system diagram and method flowchart drawing figures in fully-editable PowerPoint and Visio formats.
Specifio allows law firms and attorneys to produce consistent work product and maintain their branding by allowing them to create customized, shareable “Doc Plans” for each client or technology. Customizations can include defaults for appearance (font, format, etc.), content (standard language), and structure of the auto-generated drafts so that they look and read like their own.
