International patenting is usually an expensive process. The PCT procedure has become popular as a relatively inexpensive and easy-to-do process for preserving priority of inventions for international filing purposes. MIBA simply used the output of ProvisionalBuilder, add a few claims, and used the result as the basis for the PCT applications. MIBA worked with a patent attorney to review the applications before filing. The result is a set of international patent applications done at a fraction of the conventional international patent filing process.
To capture new ideas on-the-fly, MIBA also uses ProvisionalBuilder® Mobile for Android. This new mobile application provides MIBA engineers with a convenient way to capture photos of an invention, annotate the photos with numbers, dictate descriptions of the invention — all with the flick of fingers. Seamless integration with PowerPatent’s desktop software enables MIBA engineers to do additional editing and data back-up.
