Experience with the U.S. Patent Office since 1969

We were incorporated in 1970 as International Computaprint Corporation (ICC).  In the mid-1960s, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office began to envision using computer technology to support the patent publishing process. In 1969, ICC won the contract to develop and operate a system that would perform this work.

ReedFax (now IP Services) started operation in 1992 and has been satisfying the needs of law firms, corporate in-house legal counsel, and patent practitioners ever since, with copies of original U.S. and foreign patent and trademark documents. These services are used to support the work of patent and trademark prosecution, intellectual property litigation, and corporate research and development departments.

ICC officially became Reed Technology and Information Services Inc. in 1995.

Data solutions for the 21st century

In 2005, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration mandated that all prescription drug labeling information be submitted by life sciences manufacturers in Structured Product Labeling eXtensible Markup Language, or SPL XML format. Based on this need, Reed Tech broadened its offerings to provide SPL XML submission services to the life sciences industry.

In collaboration with web archiving service Iterasi, Reed Tech launched a web archiving service in 2010. Reed Tech Archives℠ provides extensive capture and preservation of a broad range of web content including websites, social media platforms, blog posts, RSS feeds and more.

In collaboration with PatentCore, Reed Tech launched Patent Advisor℠ in 2013. The service delivers searchable and actionable data for intellectual property organizations focused on more effective and efficient patent prosecution. As part of LexisNexis®, Reed Tech offers a full suite of IP products and services, including LexisNexis® TotalPatent®LexisNexis® PatentOptimizerLexisNexis® IP DataDirect.
