Max-IDS is MaxVal’s cloud-based, hosted, Information Disclosure/Reference Management solution. Max-IDS is much more than a form generator. Max-IDS stores your references in a centralized database together with information about the cases citing each reference. This promotes consistency, reduces confusion and makes ad-hoc solutions (such as individual spreadsheets) unnecessary.
Patent attorneys and paralegals handle a sizable list of routine tasks for their clients every day. Some are minor but repetitive; some are complicated as well as time consuming. While it may not be possible to completely automate those complex tasks like drafting claims, prior-art search, proofreading or certain USPTO activities; it is feasible that certain simple tasks like patent term estimation, generating IDS forms or claim charts or even a mere litigation check can be done rapidly and efficiently by leveraging the power of online tools. These tools are the helping hands for Patent attorneys, paralegals and even for individual inventors, not only when they are looking to save time, effort and money, but also when they want to make some informed decisions.
