The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website will be getting a makeover starting with a new homepage that will debut on December 20, 2011.
If you have been surfing through the United States patent webpage recently you will notice that they are asking for feedback in the form of a survey, and I guess as a result of those surveys they have decided that the webpage is difficult to navigate as it is.
As result, the USPTO continues to deploy improvements to IT systems, and the Agency’s online presence is part of these enhancements. The new home page is just the first of several new changes to the USPTO website in the coming months that will make the webpage easier to navigate for online visitors.
The USPTO announced:
This new home page will better present the activities and services of the USPTO to the public, and will be more accessible to our user community. After examining feedback from website visitors and employees, looking at other websites within and outside the federal government, and studying best practices in the field, a team at USPTO developed this new design as the entryway to USPTO.gov.
The USPTO has created an email box at [email protected] to receive comments, positive or negative, that may help the Agency guide future design enhancements.
