A multinational company was concerned about overspending on patent attorneys as the result of their IP team providing volumes of prior art comparisons for legal review. The introduction of Marca AutoPatent significantly reduced search and writing costs by identifying and submitting only “truly relevant” prior art for review.
Recently, a Fortune 200 company requested Marca’s assistance in comparing a new product under development with a competitor’s prior art. Using Marca AutoPatent, they ran a search that yielded valuable information that identified areas where their resources would be better allocated during the research phase of the product’s development. In addition to saving both time and money during this research phase, patent attorney costs were reduced due to the increased relevancy of the patent application itself.
