Patent intelligence support
Patent landscaping or patent state of art study is a study that involves exhaustive search, analysis and synthesis of patent documents relating to the technology domain of your interest. A detailed taxonomy of the technology is prepared in coordination with the client, based on the objective of the study. The patent documents are analyzed and arranged in the taxonomy to help our clients derive maximum value from the available patent data. Patent landscape/patent state of art reports are widely used as a knowledge base for technology troubleshooting, freedom to operate decisions, state of the art updates, understanding competitor strategy, and understanding technology trends, among others.
This is a detailed study of a competitor’s patent portfolio. The patent portfolio is analyzed and segregated in a way that helps you understand your competition better. Further, for each patent in the portfolio, we provide comment and analysis in light of your product, process, patent portfolio or specific project requirement. Furthermore, if required, we provide legal status of each of the patents in the portfolio. This study is found to be extremely useful in understanding competitors, mergers and acquisitions, determining patent filing trends, and identifying key innovators in competitor’s company, among other uses.
As part of our technology monitoring service, we carry out patent monitoring searches to keep you periodically updated about the patent applications that get published and patents that are granted in the domain of your interest. We use near fool proof strategy to capture the most relevant patent information. We summarize the results based on your requirement as part of our update, so that it is easier and less time consuming for you to take decisions. Such patent updates have a variety of applications, some of which are, taking decisions on filing pre grant and post grant oppositions, and keeping track of developments in certain technology domains.
As part of our competitor monitoring service, we carry out company and inventor based searches to keep you periodically updated about your competitor’s patent application publications and patent grants. We have the capability to monitor patent date in more than 100 jurisdictions. We summarize the results based on your requirement as part of our update, so that it is easier and less time consuming for you to take decisions. Such updates have a variety of applications, some of which are, taking decisions on filing pre grant and post grant oppositions, keeping track of developments made by competitors, predicting competitors’ future products and predicting competitor’s entry into newer markets.
