The database covers all relevant authorities and numerous smaller patent authorities, in many cases with full text data only available in PatSeer. The system includes work flow tools which allow effective processing of the most demanding projects like complex FTOs or advanced portfolio analysis. Statistics, AI and traditional searching are well integrated in a single package. A big advantage are the sharing capabilities which allow dissemination of results in a straight forward manner.

Alexander G. , Patent Searcher Legal Services, 11-50 employees, Used the software for: 2+ years

Overall:Rather easy to use, quick graphs, assignee thesaurus & combining.

Reasons for Choosing PatSeer: The subscription was about to end and I did a normal assessment of all known services which would fit the size of our company. I found PatSeer to be best on price, local support (also remote), had all the functionalities I needed (plus some more) as compared to other established and expensive products.

Erkki S. , Patent Engineer Computer Software, 1001-5000 employees, Used the software for: 6-12 months

“Excellent product with extraordinary support”

Very nice and continually improving analytics and illustration of data. Though the product is great, the best is the customer service and support, which is among the best I’ve ever experienced.

I use illustrations to infom my clients, and sometimes the illustrations aren’t as complete or flexible as I would like. But on the up side, the company provides very rapid response to any problems or suggestions, constantly enhancing the software in response to customer feedback.

Jeff C. , Principal Market Research, Self-employed, Used the software for: 2+ years

Overall: It is great search tool available with great features at affordable price.

Pros: 1. The Coverage 2. Easy to understand the searching strategy 3. Project Sharing Feature 4. Customer Support

Reasons for Choosing PatSeer: Price, Coverage/content, Project Sharing, Customer Support etc.
