Our clients who benefit from patent analytics include Rotork (valve actuators and gearboxes) and TBS Engineering (machinery for the battery industry).

Both companies understand that our patent analytics service is a cost-effective way to get strategy-influencing IP information. They also value how our experienced in-house team uses state-of-the-art patent analytics tools (such as PatSnap) to give valuable customised insights and visualisations. These are based on the reliable, curated data needed for effective commercial decisions.


So how do companies facing similar IP challenges to you already use our patent analytics service? The following anonymised examples should give you some ideas:

Company A used citation analysis on their patent portfolio. We identified other patents and applications which cited the company’s patents as prior art references. The resulting landscape revealed potential competitors and adjacent technologies. In particular, the number of citations was a measure of the relevance of the company’s patents to later patent applications, as considered by the patent office examiners – invaluable information for our client….

Company B used landscape mapping to establish the state of a technology area before beginning research and development. It helped them identify potential solutions to a given technical problem as well as identifying later patents that adopted a concept already patented by the client – all priceless intelligence….

Company C used search reports to seed a forward citation analysis to identify copycats and potential IP infringers. The searches identified potential infringers from technical information held in competitors’ patent portfolios. Armed with this, our client quickly got a comprehensive, easily understood, insight into potential infringers...
