Manage IP with the most accurate patent information available.

Fortunately, new advances in IP software provide tools to increase the efficiency of complex processes and reduce risks.

IP firms also use our patent database to validate information given to them by clients. One of our customers was given a spreadsheet of about 4,000 patents and was able to discover the company actually had more than 20,000 patent family matches.

Getting started with CLAIMS Direct is easy. The database can be delivered on the cloud and accessed through an API, or installed directly in your data center. We offer a 14-day guided free trial to help you get up and running quickly.
