Patent Bots LLC Releases New Legal Rankings for Tracking Patent Quality

SOMERVILLE, Mass. -- Patent Bots today announced its Patent Law Firm Quality Scores, a new ranking of 802 U.S. patent law firms with at least 50 issued patents for the year ending March 31, 2020. Patent Bots downloaded 310,842 publicly available patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office and then used the company's AI-powered, automated patent proofreading tool to count the number of errors in each issued patent. Issued patents identify the law firm responsible for the patent and also the company that owns the patent.

The Patent Law Firm Quality Scores provide public recognition for patent firms doing exceptionally high-quality work in avoiding legal errors in issued patents. The Quality Scores show the names of only the top fifty firms (e.g., those with the lowest number of errors per issued patent). Patent law firms outside of the top 50 can login to the Patent Bots website to see their own quality scores and where they stand with respect to other patent law firms.

"Automated patent proofreading helps decrease the number of errors in issued patents," says Jeff O'Neill, Patent Bots Founder and CEO. "Patent law firms are recognizing the importance of doing quality work and are subscribing to our proofreading tool to move up in our rankings."

Benefits of the Quality Scores rankings include:
* A novel, highly relevant, objective measure of the quality of work performed by patent law firms.
* Recognition for firms that score well, demonstrating their dedication to patent quality.
* A catalyst for underperforming firms to improve the quality of their work.

Patent Bots will update these rankings on a quarterly basis and highlight firms who are improving their Quality Scores. Moreover, Patent Bots plans on releasing more data-driven insights about other aspects of patent quality to improve the patent industry.

About Patent Bots:

Patent Bots' automated patent proofreading tool enables patent attorneys to use cutting edge machine learning to provide their clients with better patents. In addition to proofreading, Patent Bots has a suite of products that includes patent examiner statistics, an art unit predictor, patent family trees, patent timelines, and more.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- FileMage, a provider of enterprise-grade cloud migration and file transfer software solutions, today announced the availability of FileMage Gateway in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure.

New Touchless Hot Desk and Meeting Room Management Version Helps Better Workplace Safety for the Post-Pandemic Return to Work

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- To meet the changing work dynamic brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, ResourceXpress Inc. has announced a major upgrade to its flagship ResourceXpress Workspace and Conference Room booking solution to enable touchless booking, social distancing and support for safety restrictions in office hot desk or hoteling workspaces and conference rooms.

The pandemic has created pressure to implement socially-distanced office workspace and meeting room environments, reducing the density and capacity of existing real-estate and requiring organizations to better utilize the space they have. In many cases, employees will no longer have permanent desks, they will book hot desk usage for when they are in the office location.

Gartner Group suggests nearly three in four CFOs plan to shift at least 5% of previously on-site employees to remote positions. Similarly, a recent Osterman Research publication reported over 50% of organizations will increase their work-from-home policies.

Touchless Devices and Mobile First for Safety

To address the new office environment, Version 5 of ResourceXpress introduces hands free use of its Aura LED meeting room screens and QUBI3 desk screens to the workspace. This leverages built-in RFID technology to touchlessly read security badges to book, check-in and extend the use of a workspace.

Additionally, a QR code can be embedded into a meeting room screen display so the employee can use their mobile phone to scan the QR code and book the space directly from their phone. The kiosk capability of ResourceXpress allows a user to use their mobile device or a regularly sanitized touch-screen kiosk to view a floorplan map showing room and hot desk availability and out-of-service status.

Social Distancing and Safety Restrictions

ResourceXpress V5 introduces an automatic cleandown extension to a booking to allow cleaning staff to decontaminate a workspace before the next person uses it.

The new "ringfencing" feature restricts contiguous workspace usage, so if an employee books a space, the related workspaces are automatically put into an "out-of-service" color-coded status so they cannot be booked.

And by capturing data about when employees book hot desks and attend meetings, ResourceXpress can assist in contact tracing procedures.

ResourceXpress' Broadcast feature allows room screens to display policy reminders to employees on the use of workspaces.

ResourceXpress integrates with most enterprise calendaring and workplace management systems including Office365, Google, Accruent (EMS) and FM:Systems (Resource Scheduler). It can be installed in a SaaS cloud environment or in the customer's data center.

V5 of ResourceXpress will be available in June 2020.

Clive Horton, CEO of ReSoft International in New York City, the master reseller for ResourceXpress in North America, comments "The pandemic is bringing about enormous change to work practices and technologies like ResourceXpress will help in providing a safe, secure environment for employees".

Andy Fisher, Business Development Manager for ResourceXpress Inc. adds "We have listened closely to our customers and are committed to introducing a range of additional features which reflect new ways of working to ensure the workplace is a safer place."

Edupoint Announces 4th Annual ‘Partner for Life’ Award Co-Recipients: Oregon’s High Desert Education Service District and Beaverton School District

MESA, Ariz. -- Edupoint® Educational Systems, creator of the industry-leading Synergy® Education Platform for K-12 student information and learning management, is pleased to announce that Rachel Wente-Chaney, Chief Information Officer for High Desert Education Service District (HDESD) in Redmond, Oregon, and Steven Langford, Chief Information Officer for Beaverton School District (BSD) in Beaverton, Oregon, have been selected as co-recipients of the company's 2019 Partner For Life Award.

Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO of Edupoint, presented the awards at the Opening Session of the company's 2019 Synergy CONNECT conference in Anaheim, California, earlier this month.

Edupoint's partnerships with HDESD and BSD were instrumental in bringing about the Oregon Student Information System (OSIS) committee's 2012 selection of Synergy as Oregon's statewide student information system, representing more than 400,000 students.

"Rachel Wente-Chaney and Steve Langford are two early adopters who embodied the spirit of partnership that Edupoint considers one of the cornerstones of our business," said Rob Wilson, President and Chief Innovation Office of Edupoint.

"They implemented Synergy at their districts before the statewide search effort and helped open many doors in the state adoption. The selection marked an important milestone for Edupoint, both in terms of our growth in the Pacific Northwest and as an affirmation of our maturity as a K-12 solutions provider and our potential growth nationwide. With this year's Partner for Life Award, we recognize Rachel and Steve for their ongoing commitment to Synergy and to the support of learning at their districts."

"Redmond School District was the first pilot district to work with us and with Edupoint to bring Synergy to Oregon," Wente-Chaney said. "My team has been supporting student information systems since 2009, and we provide everything from end user support - when a teacher needs to know how to take attendance or enter grades - all the way through patches, updates, and custom programming in Synergy. The OSIS team has also done great work with us over the years."

"We have some fantastic teams at Beaverton that support Synergy for our district of 41,000 students at 54 schools," Langford said. "Everything we do in IT is done together in teams, and that concept of collaboration and teamwork is something that we look for in our partners as well. We very much appreciate Edupoint's willingness to sit with us and explore new ways to give our students and staff time and information."

In recognition of Wente-Chaney and Langford's valued contributions, Edupoint has awarded $10,000 to each district to be granted as a student scholarship based on criteria of the district's choosing.

Hillsborough County Public Schools, Florida, Selects Synergy Education Platform

TAMPA, Fla. -- Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) has selected the industry-leading Synergy(R) Education Platform by Edupoint(R) Educational Systems for its K-12 student information management needs. The district's Synergy solution will include Synergy Student Information System and Synergy Special Education in a cloud-hosted environment. HCPS serves approximately 220,000 students in the West Central Florida area and is the eighth largest district in the country.

"It was time to retire our district-developed mainframe-based system and replace it with a modern, expandable solution," said Rick Laneau, General Manager of Information Technology for Hillsborough. "Giving parents and students better access to their educational records from anywhere at any time was a priority, and we determined that Synergy was strong in that area as well as being based on modern technology standards. We liked the fact that we can use the system's Ed-Fi and OneRoster compliance to consolidate our interfaces with third parties. Edupoint has large district experience in 20 other states, so we felt that the company would be capable of meeting our particular needs as a large Florida district."

In seeking a new system, Hillsborough County conducted a thorough evaluation process that lasted over a year. After verifying the need to replace the mainframe, the district put out a request for information to see what commercial products were available. Half a dozen vendors responded and gave onsite presentations to a committee of more than 50 stakeholders. The evaluation team built a list of district requirements based on those presentations, and HCPS issued a request for proposal. After evaluating submissions from six vendors over six months, the district selected Synergy Education Platform as the most feature-rich and cost-effective solution.

"With Synergy Education Platform, Hillsborough County Public Schools is getting a future-ready student data management solution that can not only expand and evolve as the district's needs change over time, but is also designed to maximize parent and student access and engagement," said Bob Weathers, Founder and CEO at Edupoint. "We are delighted to be serving the HCPS community and helping the district support families through the K-12 journey."
