to view a copy of his slides. It covered many of the issues created by the America Invents Act and how to deal with some of the innovation stifling new first-inventor-to-file requirements. He is also a representitive of Power Patent which is a software package which assists you in developing a provisional patent (of which we all will be doing more).
ProvisionalBuilder helps you by organizing and cataloging your information while it does live searches to find other inventions which may compete with yours. It has some tools to help you prepare illustrations and a direct link to the USPTO for filing your provisional patent. It does not think for you. Nor does it reduce any filing fees. But this tool automates what you might do manually to help you more quickly file your provisional application.
This is a tool to help you along. It is up to you to determine if it fills your needs. Since, at this point, no one in ICCF has actually used the software we cannot recommend for or against it. Check it out. It may be what you need.
