In May 2003, Minesoft and RWS Group announced their agreement to develop PatBase, a new searchable database of patent documents designed by experts in the complex art of the patent information search. Since the first critically acclaimed public demonstrations in 2003, PatBase has gone on to attract over 30,000 users worldwide from the best-known names in industry as well as leading patent-litigating law firms. Responding to increasing demand for access to patent information from countries such as China and Japan, in 2008 a non-Latin search engine was added to PatBase – the first of its kind in a commercial patent database – allowing native language searching of an extensive collection of full text patent documents from important manufacturing economies.
Minesoft has expanded its portfolio of innovative patent information products to include PatBase Express, PatentOrder, Patent FamilyPortal, PatentTracker and PatentArchive.
In 2009, Minesoft designed and developed the Tempus IP File History Document Ordering Service, which continues to experience sharp growth today, and delivers all kinds of patent and trademark related IP documentation from around the world.
Later that same year, Minesoft won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for an outstanding achievement in rapidly growing export markets in the field of Intellectual Property (patent) information – a testament to the international success of flagship product PatBase and to the dedication of the development, sales and support staff behind it.
In 2010, Minesoft was invited to partner with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) in the ASPI Programme. PatBase now helps researchers in some of the world's poorest countries to develop and implement their own intellectual property strategy and find out about the latest technological developments worldwide, for free or at a much subsidised cost. Minesoft provides high-quality training and support world-wide in the field of patent searching on its product line.
PatBase continues to adapt for an expanding global client base, with a fully-featured Chinese interface for PatBase and PatBase Express launched in September 2013 enabling native-language navigation for Chinese-speaking users. By 2014 PatBase Express was available with a choice of 7 language interfaces making it an ideal global patent resource for end-users.
Meeting the needs of its fast growing global client base with international customer support (including locations in USA, Japan, Germany, India and Israel), Minesoft also partners with some of the information industry's leading names to offer its clients a range of essential resources,
from patent file histories to engineering and technology abstracts.
With a reputation for combining well-designed user interfaces and cutting-edge technology with responsive service,
Minesoft's goal is to remain one step ahead.
