“At the moment, it takes something bad to happen for management to realise the importance of IP. By then, of course, it’s usually too late and costs are even higher. In my opinion, patenting should not be seen solely as a cost, but more as an investment.”
Andreas Iwerbäck, Director of Group Technology and IP Intelligence, Husqvarna Group
“With improvements in AI technology and other analytics platforms like Cipher, today we are able to understand the numbers of patents that are relevant to certain technology areas at a push of a button. This insight can help you determine whether you need more or less [patents] in a particular area and start to set parameters around the investment required to put the company in good standing relative to its business objectives.”

“If you’re spending several million dollars a year on patent filings and you are filing several hundred new patents applications every year, then it seems like a clearly beneficial trade-off to spend a small portion of those expenses specifically on insights to drive better strategic decisions.”
