Search and analytics capabilities are essential at each stage in the innovation cycle, from research and development to business and IP strategy. However, the teams involved at each stage use information differently, whether they’re looking at invention novelty, technology trends, competitive intelligence, patent validity, or something else entirely. While legal teams and IP professionals are well versed in complex search and analysis, engineers and scientists may be less familiar with this type of prior art research.
These differences highlight the importance of a powerful yet intuitive platform that can be used across an organization. IP.com pairs the InnovationQ Plus® patent database with IP analytics to support companies across teams throughout the innovation cycle.
