A Patent Web Service and API for Developers
is the ideal patent information source for your development project. The data is comprehensive and consistently formatted. The APIs are developer-friendly and provide extensive search options. The Amazon EC2 hosted service is reliable and scalable.
While patent data is available from the issuing authorities, each authority requires a contract and delivers data in a unique format. With CLAIMS DIRECT, you only have one license, one fee, and one data format to deal with. You do not need to write and maintain parsers or maintain a large data processing operation. We do the parsing and data loading for you. You can launch your product sooner and with lower overall development costs.
Unlike traditional commercial information providers, IFI actively seeks developers and supports them as they incorporate patents into their applications. We do not see you or your projects as competitive. We see you as a partner providing innovative new tools and services.
to learn we can accelerate your development effort.
