Here at Nerac, we have taken significant steps to achieve the advised “social distancing” recommendation by our Center for Disease Control, and to limit exposure to COVID-19. We are closely monitoring updates from the CDC and the World Health Organization regarding the virus. We will continue to seek guidance from these agencies, public health officials and government agencies on an ongoing basis.
Identify Potentially Disruptive Inventions using a Patent Landscape
Examining the patent landscape is critical to identifying key trends, opportunities, threats and competitive activities. Nerac can deliver multi-dimensional aspects of any patent family, including interactive pie and bar charts, keyword concept clouds, location and island mapping. Understanding your current landscape from a patent perspective can help you prepare for, and exploit, trends, competitive activity and threats in a way that protects and accelerates your business.
