Sagacious IP worked very closely with R&D and IP teams of one of the largest German luxury car maker on directed IP landscapes to guide R&D teams invent in the right direction as well as accelerate the process. Within one year of engagement, we were able to double the invention disclosure form submissions from one of their R&D teams.
For one of the largest consumer electronics company from Japan, we setup regular tracking of competition, not only to monitor their technology/ business/ inventions focus areas but also to access their overall R&D and IP strategy + investments. Based on this they realized they were spending much higher per patentable invention than their industry peers globally. After carefully analyzing their R&D and patenting strategy (including accessing team sizes per invention, patent filing strategy, geographical spread, patent maintenance strategy, etc) – they learned and made customizations to their own strategy. In two years of engagement, we could see almost 23% reduction in investment per patent family.
One of the biggest Japanese electrical equipment companies was looking to set up manufacturing and market base in India in the inverters segment. Sagacious worked with the client to identify existing players, their partnerships, their market, their technologies, and the value-added products to provide an overview of the existing market conditions. In addition, Sagacious undertook primary and secondary research to help identify the level of R&D and innovation in the Indian units of the global players. The final analysis delivered helped the client take the plunge into the Indian market armed with all relevant information and right insights into making the Indian set up a success.
We worked with numerous large and small organizations operating in different areas like medical devices, test kits, vaccines, PPEs, etc. With IP landscapes we were able to accelerate their research as well as product development by reducing their time on reinventing the wheel and proceeding in the right direction with right information all the time.
For one of the largest two wheeler manufacturers from Japan, we organized a brain storming session of inventors from various teams. The session was comprised of three parts. First part was where inventors were given 45 minutes to write all their ideas about the given topic. Second was to discuss/ refine those ideas as well as come up with new ideas while working in teams of three. From these two phases we got around 23 ideas. The last session was to show them a landscape of already existing inventions and let them rework their ideas/ create new ones. After third session, the ideas we got were much more improved with more implementation details and the ideas were down to just 13. Out of which after some further development offline and Novelty assessment, 9 Ideas were found patentable and executable.
One of the largest automotive components manufacturers from Japan contacted Sagacious IP to better understand supply and value chain that was specifically focused on software components. With advent of Industry 4.0, the client wanted to be better prepared to tackle the changing landscape. Sagacious undertook a thorough patent landscape search covering both patent and market related data and provided the client with one of its kind report showcasing the supply chain that not only helped the client identify possible partners in the space but also provided intelligence about other competitive partnerships.
Landscape analysis is generally customized to meet specific needs and depends on the preferences and strategic needs of a company. At Sagacious IP, we provide a detailed proposal containing effort estimation at each step. This helps our clients in understanding the time required at each step and even helps them in accomplishing their business objectives.
Landscape search and analysis generally helps in understanding the evolution of a technology. It helps R&D teams and patent professionals in knowing the state of the art, competitor’s interest and even finding whitespaces in the technology that helps in determining the direction for future research.
Patent landscape is performed on any technology area by creating various taxonomy buckets in a technology. The patents related to the technology are then segregated into these buckets to understand the factors driving the technology. This information is studied with a variety of other information. Competitor’s patent study is the most common information that helps in understanding the technology focus of competitors.
Companies can use patent landscapes to discover patents filed by their competitors, identify new opportunities/threats in a particular domain, or even identify technology white spaces.
