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, analytics, and visualization tools, as well as the ability to carry out non-patent literature searches from within the product, makes it a complete patent searching tool and an attractive product for any patent researcher, analyst, IP professional, law firms, IP counsel and Competitive Intelligence analysts and so on.
Its powerful search and analytics platform helps you do the FTOs, patent scoring, qualitative analysis, SEP searching, technology landscaping, white space analysis, deep text mining with an easy-to-understand interface.
You can create a centralized work environment, collaborate on your patent data projects within your organization or with external collaborators with ease. This helps in faster decision-making as you can share interactive charts and graphs to recipients via the platform itself. You can set up multiple Dashlets that include a combination of patent fields and custom fields. In PatSeer, you can also set alerts to the queries for the technology you are working on. You can also monitor the changes in any particular patent number be it the addition of a new family member, forward citations, and so on.
