Identify protectable ideas / products
If businesses want to stand out from their competitors, they can no longer simply rely on their core competences. It is crucial that they think outside the box and across divisions to tackle the challenges of the future. It is the only way they can identify promising ideas, technologies and products.
As part of our comprehensive Technology & Innovation Day workshop and expert strategy consulting, we create an individualised development concept based on your business goals.
Introduce an efficient patent process:
Evaluate and introduce patent-related processes using state-of-the-art methods
Future-oriented, innovative companies own a comprehensive portfolio of intellectual property rights. The head of the patent department or the person responsible for patents and the head of development are important contacts during the patent process
We jointly work on answering the following questions: How can patent management be organised efficiently? How can we optimise processes to fully exploit the potential of intellectual property rights?
During our IP Audit, we discuss the success factors of patent management with you, evaluate your current processes and compare them with best-practice solutions. Workflow optimisation helps shed light on the role intellectual property rights play on various strategic levels in your business. We further discuss how your intellectual property rights are positioned in competition and how the greatest possible customer benefit can be taken into account. Your processes will be evaluated, in particular in the context of advancing digitalisation.
Increase company value with valuable basic IP rights:
Market-oriented generation of IP rights ‘IP-on-Demand’
Property rights play a decisive role in securing market positioning and in maintaining or building a competitive edge. It is therefore important that valuable basic intellectual property rights are generated for the company at a much earlier stage than in the course of R&D projects.
Taking into account future market requirements and customer benefit, we establish a holistic, cross-departmental corporate process for your Business Based IP Management. In several workshops, we help you generate valuable intellectual property rights that you will need in five to ten years' time.
Protect your new developments in good time
Market-targeted patent applications effectively set your business apart from the competition. Only valuable intellectual property rights will help you – particularly in the context of digitalisation – to sustainably establish and/or expand your market position.
It goes without saying that the core competencies and strategic orientation of your business must be taken into account as well.
Our IP Engineering offer includes workshops and patent analyses that help you identify inventions that need intellectual property protection and enable you to formulate concrete descriptions.This allows you to build your IP portfolio in a goal-oriented manner and save costs in the subsequent patenting process.
Don’t react to trends, take action to shape them!
Control tomorrow’s innovation efforts:
Choose the right IP strategy based on a comprehensive competition analysis
Avoid the costly development of technologies that already are intensively protected. Instead, secure your own innovations where there is still sufficient leeway (white spots). This allows you to take advantage of your opportunities and avoid costly infringement conflicts at an early stage.
Our IP Tomography offer includes examining your specific competitive environment in the technological IP field based on a detailed and feature-related competition analysis. This allows us to create a sound basis for decision-making regarding the optimisation of your patenting and development activities (Competitive Intelligence).
Deploy a holistic IP concept:
Analyse – Generate – Monitor. Secure the future of your company
Innovation alone does not secure your business strategy. It forms the basis of a systematic value creation process.
To build on that, we have developed a value creation model, our ‘PATEV 3-step model’. It helps us secure your long-term competitiveness in the market by generating and monitoring protected innovations:
