What makes PatentSight® so special?
1. Global Patent Coverage
2. Comprehensive Patent Datasets
How many patents does a single client or competitor own? One might think the answer would be simple when provided with access to a global patent database, but with a little bit of research, it becomes apparent that the answer is not always clear. A single assignee is often listed differently among its patent applications (such as “Apple, Inc.,” “Apple Incorporated” or “APPLE”), making it hard for patent practitioners to access all of a company’s patents from a single search. Moreover, companies often use subsidiaries and affiliates as owners of their patent rights.
PatentSight patent records are reviewed both manually and via software for variations in ownership designations, spellings and capitalizations that have historically made searches more difficult. Users can be confident that their searches through PatentSight will result in more complete patent portfolio information.

3. Objective Patent Comparisons
Determining a patent’s significance has always been a challenge, but PatentSight relies on a science-backed algorithm that allows users to objectively compare patent families. Each patent’s Competitive Impact™ is calculated based on a combination of citations received and the geographic scope and market size covered by the family of patents. As a result, each patent’s Competitive Impact is a normalized metric that enables objective comparisons of the world’s patents.

4. Objective Patent Portfolio Evaluations
With Competitive Impact facilitating comparisons on the patent family level, the PatentSight Patent Asset Index™ is the metric that allows users to evaluate the strength of entire patent portfolios. Each patent portfolio’s Patent Asset Index communicates to users the aggregate strength of all patent families contained within the patent portfolio. Armed with this information, patent professionals can track portfolio changes over time, monitor and evaluate a client’s competitors and take actions to improve the strength of a client’s patent portfolios, and improve their patent practice.
