Columbus, Ohio and Orange, CA (September 1, 2015) – Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) and BizInt Solutions, Inc. are excited to announce a collaboration empowering search professionals using new STN to seamlessly transition from precision searching to customized reporting and analysis for Intellectual Property (IP) research, discovery and decision support. Today’s launch of BizInt Smart Charts for Patents 4.0 and the August 1 launch of the latest version of new STN make this possible with the introduction of a new data transfer format that optimizes integration of STN search results into the culminating, post-search analysis stage of the IP search workflow.

BizInt Smart Charts for Patents enables individuals to aggregate, examine, refine and act upon information from myriad patent information resources. New STN, operated jointly by CAS and FIZ Karlsruhe worldwide, is a modern, web-based search solution for IP professionals, offering access to essential, curated content through an intuitive, project-oriented interface.

"STN provides access to the most complete collection of high value patent and related sci-tech content in the world, and as such, is the preferred platform for professionals to make informed business decisions to protect intellectual property," said Chris McCue, CAS vice president marketing. "Now, with BizInt Smart Charts, this innovative new workflow solution enables STN users to more efficiently analyze, integrate, and share the high-quality, business-critical information they get from STN, significantly increasing the value of that information across their entire organization."

BizInt Smart Charts for Patents 4.0 supports new STN value-added bibliographic databases, including CAplusSM and Derwent World Patents Index® (DWPISM) from Thomson Reuters, non-patent literature databases and all full-text patent databases. Support for additional databases, including substance and structure databases, will be added in upcoming releases of BizInt Smart Charts.
