Founded in 2007, Innography was conceived as a way to extend manual processes in patent search to true patent business intelligence by developing a set of powerful algorithms that cleanse and normalize data, mine patents for vital information, and automatically make determinations on which patents in a set are the most valuable.
Innography delivers comprehensive, online Intellectual Property Business Intelligence (IPBI) applications and patent tools that enable companies of all types and sizes to achieve the best possible return on IP investments. Through a powerful business analytics platform, Innography streamlines manual IP-related tasks by giving instant access to reliable and vital data.
