ADVANCED SEARCH METHODOLOGIES

We have the right people.  We have the right tools.  However, one of our biggest advantages is that our Analysts receive in-depth training on proprietary search methodologies, thereby enabling them to unleash their experience and knowledge to get the best results from the advanced tools that they use.  All of our Research Analysts go through our exclusive Black Belt System™ patent search training.  Having a good search tool is NOT the same as knowing how to most effectively USE that tool.

We utilize tested and proven proprietary search methodologies that optimize our Analysts’ search capabilities.

  • Bull's Eye Method™ - A GPS-developed approach for optimally targeting search activities
  • Authoring Method™ - A proprietary search technique that approaches the search of a concept or sub-concept from the viewpoint of a writer or author.  It is a specialized methodology for enabling the Research Analyst to focus on the crux of the search concept or sub-concept.
  • SAT Method™ - A unique methodology for developing the most effective synonyms, acronyms and truncation variants to be used in search strings.  This proprietary systemic approach to building search strings is a key differentiator 

Our use of these proprietary techniques and methodologies for performing patent research is something that less experienced researchers don’t know about and our competitors have not been able to replicate.  The result of this is that Global Patent Solutions uncovers prior art that cannot be equaled in other ways.  By utilizing uniform processes, we not only improve the search results of our highly-qualified Analysts, we also ensure consistent quality of output on all client searches.

PROVEN & RELIABLE SEARCH METHODS.  CONSISTENT QUALITY RESULTS.

In summary, we have: 1) the talent, 2) the tools, and 3) the process – to do the best patent searching possible. Why use any other perceived alternative?

Searching Tips

  1. Title/Abstract Search - Use 'AND'
  2. Title/Abstract/Claims Search - Use 'AND'
  3. Full-Text Search - Use 'With', 'Same' & NEARx'
  4. Use Combine Function with one query 'general' and another query 'specific'
  5. Full-Text Search - Use 'AND'
  6. Redo Steps 1-5 with different strings (SAT Method)
