Data architects specializing in global patent data
The proprietary data architecture developed by IFI is the reason we produce the industry’s most complete and accurate view to a patent. We address inaccuracies and incongruences before any data enters our database.
All incoming data from 100+ sources is met by our algorithms and corrected to fit our predefined patent-ideal format. When issues are found, our team of specialists works to resolve the problem before data is allowed into CLAIMS Direct.

130+ million records
The CLAIMS Direct database is continually updated to bring you the most current information, and our collection is constantly expanding. On average, 200,000 new records and 8-10 million records updates are added every month.
We're always in the process of adding new countries and increasing full text coverage. If you need documents from a country we don't currently offer, we will work to secure access to that country. For the latest detailed country-specific coverage, please contact us.
IFI adds fields to the data that save a lot of clean up time. Learn about our data enrichment process, which includes standardized company names, patent expire, and more.
