Silverdale, Wash. - March, 6, 2012 – Applied Technical Systems (ATS) is one of three companies awarded a one year contract with two option years to develop simple and unified interfaces to make the user experience as integrated and intuitive as possible for the US Patent & Trademarks Office (USPTO). This project supports Trademarks-Next Generation (TM-NG) and Patents End-to-End (PE2E). ATS was also recently contracted to redesign, develop and implement the new user interface for PE2E.
Initial tasking for ATS will leverage its extensive experience in web-based technology and user centered design to provide the USPTO with a prototype for a new unified interface for Trademark examiners and attorneys, part of the broader TM-NG program at USPTO.
“ATS is excited to begin enhancing the efficiency for the Trademarks side of the agency and TM-NG” says Carey Kolb, ATS Vice President of Systems Engineering. “I am confident that the innovative, next generation product we are developing for the patent examiner community can be replicated to improve the user experience and productivity for the trademark examiners.”
This contract award is the most recent win in a string of successful projects that highlight ATS' work for its federal customers and its commitment to improving customer efficiency and decision making capabilities.
