Challenge

Streamline Data-Driven Decisions

The administrative costs of running the nation’s Patent Trademark Office were among the highest in the federal government. Legal complexities made any attempt to change the patent process difficult, time-consuming, and costly. USPTO needed a tool that would provide an instant, accurate impact assessment of individual streamlining efforts.

Solution

Proprietary Burden Calculator

Ambit led the development of a proprietary internal tool known as the Burden Calculator — an advanced computational framework designed to quantify the downstream public burden of complex forms management tasks. This tool provided the agency with the ability to accurately estimate the value of proposed work efforts and the insight to better influence the responsible utilization of agency resources.

Result

Speed and Savings

The Burden Calculator provided USPTO with detailed cost transparency, enabling management to make more informed, data-driven decisions that resulted in significant ongoing labor savings.
