Alerts, Technology or Patent Watch

TPR’s expertise in finding data from around the globe gives us the unique ability to feed you critical, timely information regarding your business interests and research and development strategies.

Our technology and patent alert service can be tailored to your specific areas of focus to give you the latest in patent and/or non-patent literature information based on selected criteria such as:

  • Subject Matter
  • Class/Sub-class
  • Assignee
  • Authors
  • Inventor
  • Legal Status

If your organization already subscribes to an alert service, we can help improve it. From updating the search strategy, to refining the search terms, to providing data analysis and intelligence reports, our team can carry out an audit of your subscription-based alerts to help maximize the use of the information you’re paying for, and ensure you’re getting exactly what you need to stay informed.

Benefits of a Technology or Patent Alert
