Save time and money. PatentSight+ is an efficiency play. The benefits are not limited to measurable time and cost savings. Classification of patents is both objective and repeatable eliminating unwanted and unnecessary delays

How can I find out about new and disruptive technologies?

Identifying the unknown is notoriously hard. We can monitor new technologies with the same accuracy as you achieve with your core technologies. With the ability to produce global landscapes and sophisticated alerting, we can provide reliable information to shape your competitive intelligence strategy.

How can I reduce the delay and expense of outsourcing patent landscapes?

Outsourcing is simply asking other humans to manually tag and sort patents. In a world of over 100 million patents, efficiency requires automation. PatentSight+ uses AI and machine learning to achieve the level of accuracy required, but without human intervention. Less perspiration, more time for inspiration.
