Since we analyze patents for many different reasons to suit various needs of our clients, there really isn’t one definition for Patent Analysis. Based on the end requirement and the scope, we come out with the best possible process for a patent analysis that meets your overall requirements.
Whether it is a product commercialization or a new product development, initiating or redirecting your research and development, facing infringement threats or being saved from infringement accusations, tracking the trend of a technology progress or even filing an important patent filing, patent analysis can help you in several critical steps in your business process. In short, patent analysis acts as an easy to reach counselor for your invaluable business.
For each project our team is built to match the subject domain with their various expertise areas and divides your requirements into relevant components. The plan is then shared with you to see if it meets your needs before we move to the analysis of the patents. We analyze the patents based on the components of interest and provide you an easy and quick to follow format.
Based on the types of analysis required, we make the estimates and ask for your confirmation on whether to analyze all the claims or only independent claims or the complete specification of the patents.
The next stage of analysis is Patent Mapping. This can also be called as a well-organized pictorial transformation of the analyzed data.
We translate the analyzed information into graphical layouts that are easy to follow and presentable to your research and development team or your business decision makers. The graphical representation of the analyzed data based on your need is established to generate pertinent and possible correlations between multiple factors.
During the course of analysis and mapping, our experts share their thoughts on the composition of the final map output.
