Identify potential infringers and protect your patents from unauthorized use by knowing which patents from your competitors have been stopped due to existing prior art that you own.

Maximize the value of your portfolio

Make informed decisions regarding your IP and strategically leverage your strongest inventions by knowing when an examiner is citing your patent in a rejection.

Stay ahead of your competition

Stay informed about new entrants or interlopers in your technical space by keeping track of recent citations made to your portfolio.

Strengthen your negotiating position

Negotiate more effectively with partners, licensees, and other stakeholders by leveraging comprehensive knowledge of your patent portfolio and potential infringements.
