Our projects

The Cipher Solutions team delivers bespoke projects. This is a great way to benchmark our capabilities against existing solutions. We focus specifically on your return on investment (ROI). Example of report types include:

Competitive intelligence report

provides an objective comparison with competitors and new entrants. Many Cipher’s charts and visulasations have been optimised to meet increased demand for this information.

Due diligence report

identifies the key issues that can affect value and risk across a range of M&A and licensing deals, saving both time and cost in this previously labour intensive task.

Patenting strategy

benchmarks your patenting strategy using customisable metrics including activity, territory, citations and cost.

Technology landscape report

harnessing Cipher’s unique approach to classification, a landscape report identifies trends by owner and over time, with the ability to focus on new entrants or specific regions.
