Accutrac Debuts New IP Module
Accutrac Software, Inc. had released its Intellectual Property Module for its Accutrac records management system.
Sometimes it is better to bypass (temporarily) a tech problem rather than fix it. Fixing a problem (analyzing the situation and correcting the error) requires time, which you may not have when your user needs something now.
The user (court, judge, client, lawyer) does not want to hear how a document was delayed because of a network error or a printer malfunction. They just want their document.
Find an alternative, and then when you have time, go back and tinker with the problem.

The new module helps lawyers manage and track patent, trademark, and copyright files, and includes a searchable, cross-referenced database linked to validation tables.
The system was developed in conjunction with the company's IP clients, and with the specifications of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, reports Los Angeles-based Accutrac.
Database fields include, number, registration number, country, class, series, inventor, and related dates. The program includes the capability to create and print IP barcode labels, to assist in tracking and easy check-in, check-out.
