Database description

PatSeer is powered by Gridlogics, a provider of products and custom software solutions for patent research, data analysis, and project management.
PatSeer includes a full-text patent collection including several unique in-house collections. The addition of AI driven capabilities, analytic and visualization tools, as well as the ability to carry out non-patent literature searches from within the product, makes it a complete patent solution and an attractive product for any patent researcher or analyst.
Its powerful search and analytical platform helps you do the FTOs, patent scoring, qualitative analysis, SEP data, technology landscaping, white space analysis, CI, deep text mining and more with ease.
You can create a centralized work environment, collaborate on your patent data projects within your organization or external collaborators with ease. Setup multiple dashboards (Dashlets) that include different combination of patent and custom fields, set technology / patent alerts. This helps in faster decision-making as you can share interactive charts and graphs to recipients via the platform itself.
