Update on New STN®

February  16th,   2012

In October 2011, the STN partners announced that a completely new STN would be phased into the market beginning in 2012. This initiative was to start with an alpha release at the end of 2011, followed by continued customer consultation and product development.

We are pleased to confirm that we are on track with this plan.

An alpha release was provided to the STN Advisory Council members in December 2011, and has been used to date by nearly 100 patent search professionals. They have confirmed that the new platform provides important advances while retaining the value of STN and aligning with the workflow of patent experts.

An enhanced alpha version will be available by June. At that time, we will expand availability to additional customers who have requested early access to the new platform. 

Release of a beta version of the new platform to all STN fixed-fee customers is on track for the fourth quarter of 2012.
