Turnkey Your Patent Landscape
Every patent landscape we create is different. Different industries, different innovations, different goals. Yet, within each industry, there are typically many overlapping areas of interest.
Our Industry Landscapes categorize some of the most common areas of interest — technologies, markets, products, assignees (or patent owners), all using our online PatentCAM™ platform. Along with adding custom categories, users can review patents, organize data, highlight key text, and add comments to stay on top of new developments, share data and deliver actionable results.
Starting a new patent landscape is always the hardest part. PatentEdge already took care of that.
You have questions. We have answers. Here are a few of the more common ones but if you’d still like to speak with someone about how PatentEdge can support your business goals, let’s chat.
What is PatentEdge™?
Which regions of the world do you cover?
Do you provide information on patent applications and issued patents?
Generally, yes. PatentEdge houses both issued patents and patent publications from the US and Europe. We only provide titles and abstracts for Japanese patent applications and not Japanese issued patents (Japanese patents are machine-translated into English). Since the World Intellectual Property Organization is only a patent publication authority, and does not issue patents, all our PCT data comes from patent applications.

How far back does your data go?
How often do you update your data?
Why can’t I see data on patent applications filed yesterday?
How do you determine which patents go into which categories?
These patent searches were developed by subject matter and patent search experts. We continuously monitor the database and refine our results by eliminating extraneous patents.
What if there is a technology or market category that I think should be included in PatentEdge, but is not already there.
You can create new categories (and sub-categories) in PatentCAM based on your keywords of interest. All the analytic tools will automatically reconfigure to analyze that sub-set of patent data. You can also remove categories that are not relevant to your search.

Public patent data is available online for free? Why should I pay for your database?
We’ve tried free and paid patent databases in our own consulting practice and found the process so frustrating, we created PatentEdge to address deficiencies in the alternatives.
Not only does our software pre-sort valuable patent data through a streamlined interface, it features analytic tools, monthly updates and sharing capabilities across your organization.
How much does PatentEdge cost?
Visit our Get Started page to see our available plans and pricing.
Can I customize permissions and access for my group, enterprise or institution?
Yes. PatentEdge contains powerful administrative functions.
Our main permissions limit which collections each individual user or enterprise department can access and/or see.
Other features allow you to control individual user access to:
- Move patents into other folders or trash
- Create and rename custom folders and subfolders (collections) visible to individuals or the group
- View the edit tree, where users see all the collections in which a single patent exists
I don’t have a credit card. Are there other accepted forms of payment?
Please contact us with your name and phone number. We will give you a call within 48 hours to set up an alternate payment arrangement.
