What's New

THE BEST KEEPS GETTING BETTER

You spoke. We listened. We made the #1 Outsell-ranked Patent Research and Analysis Service even better.

Streamline your workflow with Thomson Innovation’s new, modern interface. It was designed with you in mind, based on your feedback. It’s more efficient, with fewer clicks. Its navigation, search and results have been redesigned to be simpler, more logical, intuitive and inviting.

The new Thomson Innovation Dashboard. Smart Search, located on the Dashboard and powered by the Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI), enables all users, regardless of experience, to search with confidence.

SMART SEARCH

Smart Search is a patent-pending semantic search tool that gives users meaningful and relevant results just by entering a few simple search terms.  Smart Search provides benefits to both new and expert patent searchers:

  • New or infrequent patent searchers benefit by having access to a simple and powerful tool that enables fast, relevant search results.
  • Expert patent searchers benefit by using Smart Search to quickly identify alternative ways to describe concepts and technology, and in some cases to uncover results that even an advanced Boolean search might miss.

SMART SEARCH = GOOGLE™, BING™ OR YAHOO!™ FOR PATENT SEARCHING

Just enter up to five words or phrases and click search.  Your results will appear, ranked in order of relevancy based on how closely they relate to your search strategy.  There is no need to spend time trying to identify all the different ways a concept or invention can be described - Smart Search will do that for you.

Smart Search translates

Search queries can be entered in English, many European languages, and Japanese.  Smart Search translates your query and identifies patents and applications that include your search terms, even if they are in another language.

IMPROVED NAVIGATION AND OUTPUT

Patent Search and Search Results are now displayed together. Easily edit searches without the need to jump between pages saving time and mouse clicks. All of the buttons and navigation were redesigned based on a combination of customer workflow studies and usability laws creating an efficient workspace.
