Unique Features & Benefits

AcclaimIP provides comprehensive access to the world’s published patent data, updated weekly with 150,000 to 200,000 new publications. All patent documents are translated into English while retaining the original language text and PDFs. Legal status events are processed weekly, so you can track the status of each patent.

In this mature industry, patent data itself is no longer a major differentiator. What makes AcclaimIP stand out from competing software is how you can interact with the data and gain unique insights. Learn about unique features that make AcclaimIP more intuitive, insightful, and useful than other patent search and analytics tools.

Intuitive User Experience for More Efficient Research

AcclaimIP uses a windows-style interface for organizing patent data into customizable views tailored to your needs.

Figure 1: Synchronized Navigation – AcclaimIP’s interface links related data windows so when you scroll in the main patent view, the child windows update to show information for the patent currently in focus. This parent-child relationship enables efficient analysis as you navigate seamlessly between connected data.

Powerful Matrix Queries for Easier Patent Landscaping

AcclaimIP has unique tools to build, update, and link complex patent search matrices. Matrices enable patent landscapes and streamline re-running hundreds of queries with one click.

Revealing Uncited Prior Art

Only AcclaimIP identifies uncited references likely to be prior art based on examination of related family members. Uncited art that is identified by AcclaimIP is ranked from 0 to 5 by likelihood of relevance.

Intelligent prior art scoring based on examiner’s history – AcclaimIP

When an examiner cites impactful references not mentioned by other jurisdictions, the platform provides data-driven insights into the art’s potential significance.

Detailed EP Validations

We process EP legal status events to display validated EP countries and current status in our charting tools. AcclaimIP uniquely maps your European protection at the country level.
