In July Minesoft launched a new patent citations watch service – CiteTracker.
The service automatically alerts users to new published patent citations of interest each week as they are added to patent documents. Organisations can use CiteTracker to monitor which competitors are citing their own patent portfolio or to discover what technologies are most frequently being cited.
CiteTracker eliminates the need for time-consuming manual citation searches to be carried out each week – results are delivered by email whenever new citations are published for any of the patents in the original set.
Minesoft handles everything from setting up the alert to delivering the result, providing a concise report of new citations that can be easily shared with colleagues or clients.
The new service is an ideal resource for patent attorneys, lawyers, IP counsel, R & D, search firms, and licensing and technology transfer offices.
