Staying informed on your competitor’s innovation strategy has always been important in all industries, but especially in those industries where one innovative idea can disrupt the entire industry. Many times the focus is on the large companies who have been around for a while, but it is becoming more and more common for smaller unforeseen competitors to burst onto the scene with industry changing innovations. It is usually difficult and time consuming to monitor these smaller companies, especially if they don’t have a lot of information in the public domain.
By using the ktMINE Search + Alerts product, users can stay on top of competitors and identify potential disruptive companies in a fraction of time. When in depth research is warranted, ktMINE can build Company Innovation Reports that provide immediate insights into a company’s innovation strategy.
Here is an example of how users perform competitive intelligence research with ktMINE in 3 simple steps.
1. Perform a Search by Technology
The ktMINE Search tool instantly displays companies, license agreements, patents, IP News, and patent assignments in the Solar Power space.
2. Review Company Patent Details
Because our patents tab is sorted by the company that own the patents, you can choose a single company to do a deeper dive into their patent portfolio or take a look at all of the data ktMINE has on that company by simply typing the company name into the search bar.
3. Request a Comprehensive Company Report
If the company looks like one of interest based on your search, and you’d like to see all of their Intangible Asset portfolio and activity you can request an innovation report from ktMINE.
