Semantic search

The IamIP provides 4 different ways of searching, simple search, fielded search, flexible search and command line searching.

All 4 support non-latin character search, search history queries, cross-lingual searches and semantic search. The last 3 also support wild-card searches.

Simple search is search only for one classification, keyword or publication number.

Field search lets you combine several fields together, such as applicant's name, keywords or classification search into one structured search. Also introducing Boolean operators.

Flexible search lets you combine several fielded search into one to further develop the field search possibilities to further enhance your patent searching. With the possibility to add Boolean operators.

Command line is our most flexible way of searching providing proximity operators along with the Boolean operators. It is also possible to combine several fields and search areas into one using the command line search.

Possibility to store several hundred patents into one container and then analyze the data to see trends, developments and get further statistical data to put you ahead of your competitors.

Legal status
Search results

Monitoring profiles are saved searches that run automatically after a database update and provide you with patents according to your new definition (e.g. only the first invention, all new patents granted, registration of the same invention in other countries).
If you would like to monitor individual patents to see whether, for example, they have been granted or have expired because the fee has not been paid, you can set up a legal status watch for these patents.
Both are possible within the IamIP system.
