For patent professionals, understanding which companies have been seeking patent protection around the world is a two-fold benefitit can guide client competitive intelligence decisions by making clear which competitors are the biggest and best-positioned competitors, and it can help clients identify potential partnerships or licensees that would allow them to monetize their patent rights. 

 Patent filings by a single company often vary in their ownership designations, spellings and capitalizations, which has historically made it difficult to identify and evaluate such a company’s patent portfolio records. PatentSight patent records are reviewed for such inconsistencies, both manually and via software, to help ensure user analyses are conducted based on complete information. With more complete patent data and objective measures of portfolio strengthPatentSight patent landscaping tools facilitate the production of reliable and informative visualizations that allow users to quickly and deeply understand the strengths and weaknesses, rights and needs of other companies.
