The most accurate patent data with broad global coverage

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.

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.
