London, September 23rd, 2014 PatBase Express – the online searchable patent database created by Minesoft and RWS Group – has been redesigned to provide a seamless and consistent user experience across multiple devices and platforms.
PatBase Express is the global patent database designed for end-users in an organisation, offering a simple and intuitive way of searching and reviewing worldwide patent literature. The remodelled website automatically adapts according to screen size and orientation, responding dynamically to the device without the user having to continuously resize and scroll to carry out their patent research. The new responsive design means that navigating PatBase Express and viewing search results is a fluid experience, whether the user is accessing it from a PC, a tablet or a smartphone. Optimisation for viewing across all major platforms, including iOS and Android, makes PatBase Express accessible and user-friendly in any environment.
Ian Perriman, Minesoft’s Design Manager, explains, “Increasing numbers of our users are accessing PatBase Express on mobile devices, so we wanted to ensure that the website is optimised for display across these platforms as well as for desktop users. In addition to automatic resizing and orientation adjustment, tablet and smartphone users will be able to move through patent search results fluidly by simply swiping across and benefit from features such as the interactive patent drawings carousel.”
Across all platforms, the redesign improves the user experience with new touches like bolder icons, a fixed toolbar and a bright new colour scheme – making PatBase Express easy to use for any user, anywhere, on any device.
