Measure What You Manage

Comprehensive cost data supplied by more than 80+ patent attorney firms – translation fees, foreign counsel fees and selected filing route. All the mission critical information integrated to enable that you need to make quicker, better, money saving and revenue earning decisions.

Slice and dice the data instantly – by competitor, technology, territory or sector. You are in control.

  • Multiple entry points – search by company, technology, seed portfolio
  • Multiple data views – graphical and list views that you can export and share
  • Understand the past, predict the future – cost projections accurate to ± 10%


Strategic Alignment That Saves Money

Cipher’s cost analysis has revealed dramatic examples of misaligned corporate and IP strategy. For example, companies with significant patent cost and no discernable benefit – a good patent is a patent that adds value.

Cipher enables complex territorial analysis. Are there regional discrepancies? Why are competitors behaving differently? What’s going on in the supply chain? $1m does not go far when managing a complex portfolio – savings are within reach with instant access to Cipher reports.

Cost Effective and Self Funding

Cipher pays for itself. Your AI analyst to do the manual work, freeing up your time to think. Access real-time data delivering fresh insight on calculations that are impossible or impractical to generate by hand.

And it gets better. When budgets are tight, avoid the cost and delay of commissioning external reports. With Cipher, you can run all the reports you want.
