That way, all data from PatOrg IP Management are also usable for the assessment.
Classification of drawings
The drawings in a patent document contain information which is often decisive for the comprehension and interpretation of an invention. State-of-the-art techniques for patent research, however, consider only textual information and thus, ignore the valuable information contained in the drawings.
Within the scope of the PatExpert project it has now become possible to automatically classify drawings contained in a patent document. In this process, the individual images will be extracted from the PDF document at first. Subsequently, the orientation will be defined on the basis of various algorithms. Finally, in the last step the characteristic features will be identified in order to assign the respective image to class of drawings. The method developed by researchers of the University of Salonika is currently capable of categorizing drawings as a flowchart, graph, circuit, technical drawing or block diagram. In a first prototype this knowledge can be already applied to research, as to look for documents that contain a flowchart.
Decisions in PatOrg's favour in Stuttgart and Munich
Brügmann Software continue to grow! PatOrg Suite will be implemented at the Wilex corporation. Located in Munich, the corporation's focus is the development of new cancer therapies based on antibodies and low-molecular active agents.

In PatOrg' DMS cartographies can be saved and cases or persons assigned just as all other documents.
PatOrg now also supports efficiently mobile working by means of an “electronic briefcase”. In this manner documents from PatOrg´s document management system can be "taken away” in a controlled fashion on notebooks or memory sticks and edited elsewhere.
Back in the office, the Patorg briefcase can be easily synchronized with the document management system in order to transfer changes in existing documents and new documents as the case may be.
Access to FreePatentsOnline.com
As from now, patents can be looked up online directly from the related case in the freely available database FreePatentsOnline.com. The database currently includes US and EP patents. In the near future the abstracts of Japanese patents will be made available as well. So, FreePatentsOnline.com supplements the databases of the European and the American patent office, which have already been provided for the respective case. Unfortunately, other online databases such as DepatisNet do not enable yet direct linking and can thus not be integrated in a similar fashion.
Interface to QuickPat!
As an alternative to PatBot it is now also possible to transfer patent documents in a comfortable manner into the PatOrg document database and to assign files by using QuickPat. The tight integration allows to simply retrieve at the push of a button the corresponding document that is based on the file number, provided that this document exists in any of those freely accessible patent databases.
When a new file with an officially known file number is being opened PatOrg automtically uses the respective program and downloads the corresponding bibliographic data without the need of any additional assistance.

We trust our clients and they trust us. The blue colour symbolises the mutual solidarity, the continuity and reliability as a basis for long-term and succesful partnerships.
We are open-minded towards new ideas, technologies and the integration of software systems and services of other producers such as renewal services. Our independence enables us to pursue our goal in an unrestricted and effective way as well as to develop perfect solutions for the management of intellectual property.
