Develop a patent database
CFProfile GmbH & Co. KG, Düsseldorf

The law firm of COHAUSZ & FLORACK offers legal advice and support within Germany and abroad on the topic of patent law, design protection and trademark law.

The criteria for the software solution:
catapullt was commissioned to develop a database that automates the retrieval of international patent data and assigns said data to client profiles. The firm's goal was to ensure regular data updates as well as timely automatic forwarding of patent-relevant information to corresponding clients.

The custom software solution:
Following technical specification and systematic design, the existing applications, data and systems were integrated in a mass data import process.
By developing a custom database and an associated web-based user interface (front end), new patents and updates to known patents can be imported, filtered, synchronized and/or updated if necessary by patent offices worldwide. The solution thus enables a multi-tenant “patent pool” with an automatic filter and import function.

Client benefits:
The software solution ensures rapid synchronization of patent-relevant information with patent offices. The assignment of profiles with distinct rights and roles facilitates communication between the firm and its client.
