Step 1

Understanding the Technology

In this initial phase, our experts immerse themselves in the specific domain of interest, gaining profound insights into the domain. The understanding developed helps determine key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics. This deep understanding forms the foundation of our analysis.

Step 2

Research and Identification

We execute a thorough search across global patent and non-patent databases, focusing on content available in the English language and utilizing machine translation when necessary.

Our search strategies encompass a variety of methods :

  • Keyword-based Searching : Utilizing relevant keywords to identify pertinent patents and non-patent literature
  • Class-based Searching : Employing IPC/USC/CPC classifications to categorize and filter search results effectively
  • Assignee and inventor-based Searching : identifying patents associated with specific entities or inventors
  • Citation Searching : Analyzing related patents to uncover interconnected technologies and trends

For patents, we utilize databases such as Orbit (from Questel, covering ~100 jurisdictions), Derwent Innovation (encompassing ~100 jurisdictions worldwide), Google Patent, Patentscope, The Lens, Espacenet etc.

Non-patent literature searches include prominent databases like ScienceDirect, PubChem, Pubmed, CiteseerX, Google, the product guide, the company website, and Google Scholar to retrieve relevant information.

Step 3

Analysis and Reporting

Relevant references and products are identified through meticulous screening of their content and other related information.

Identified references are categorized into distinct technology-based taxonomies, facilitating organization of data for further analysis.

The categorized results undergo in-depth analysis s uch as number of filings, number of grants, strength of claims, etc., enabling us to extract valuable trends and insights from the data.

The activity by the major competitors, research institutions, and other players, such as recent filings, recent publications, product launches etc. is also analyzed.

Analyzing the data collected to pinpoint areas where there is a lack of existing IP protection or where the current IP solutions do not fully address market demands. These gaps represent potential opportunities for new product development, technology innovation, or IP creation.

We provide a comprehensive MS Excel-based report detailing project specifics, patent families, in-depth analysis, and search strategy.
Additionally, we create an MS PowerPoint presentation highlighting identified trends and actionable insights. This format allows for both high-level overviews and detailed examinations of specific patent documents.
Our methodology ensures a systematic and insightful analysis, enabling businesses to make informed decisions based on a thorough understanding of the IP portfolio.
The PowerPoint presentation can include further white space analysis. Here, we intend to pinpoint technologies within the field that have the potential for further research or patenting. These findings will be valuable for comprehending how to enhance or modify these technologies.
At Effectual, we recognize the importance of having the right information when developing new products or improving existing ones. Our IP portfolio services provide essential insights to empower your business and drive success in a rapidly changing market.
