FreePatentsOnline (FPO) was developed in the classic mould of innovation – the “better mouse trap” – making patent research faster, easier, and more accessible than ever before. Further, it was built with the evolving model of the web and open access – FPO is responsible for much of the democratization of patent data, search, and analytics by bringing it to so many people – and doing so with professional standards (fast and accurate search, up-to-date data, feature-rich tools such as alerts, portfolios, and collaboration).
While the FPO moniker speaks to the economics of usage, a profound commitment to high-quality data management, search technology, and overall infrastructure serves as the underpinning for the site and all of SumoBrain Solutions’ projects.
SumoBrain Solutions continues in this spirit in supporting the University and research communities by offering solutions that address their particular area of focus. From our advanced API and search engine (Catalyst), to data extracts, custom analytics, and other special projects, we continue to support the advancement of understanding and meaningful application of patent data, innovation patterns, and related data and information.
We look at ourselves more as a technology partner or enabler to the research community, empowering them to conduct complicated and – either impossible or very expensive analysis – without extensive development, data, or data management expenditures. And we are constantly looking for new ways to bring value to the vibrant University IP community.
