Scores and KPIs

Scores and KPIs

The best and most promising companies

Business relevant scores

EconSight scores and indicators are designed to get the best possible information out of patents: quantity, quality, and dynamics of a patent portfolio. EconSight has developed a technology-specific patent score which is applied to every patent worldwide. The EconSight Patent Score is the foundation for two business relevant patent scores – the World Class Score and the Transformation Score. Both indicators provide fundamental insights – the identification of the best and/or most promising companies in a specific technology or in a technology set.

Identification of market opportunities


A multi-dimensional concept for the identification of promising markets

EconSight’s combination of an expert-defined comprehensive technology taxonomy, ready-to-use patent collections, and business relevance-based quality assessment can be used to precisely measure and position each relevant player in a technology sector. In addition, next-generation AI with customised LLM and GenAI are applied on the comprehensive taxonomy to further subdivide each field into hundreds of technology segments to correctly identify and measure each relevant sub-concept in its technology environment.
EconSight can identify and assess the degree of conceptual proximity of players based on the text of their published patents, and identifies any new or old potential competitor or even matching players for strategic investment. EconSight’s 3D cluster analysis identifies the most dynamic, smallest and attractive technology segments to find the starting point for the most efficient IP strategy. Innovative designs or raw patent applications can later be evaluated for uniqueness, grant probability or predictive quality ratings and projected into an existing patent landscape as if they were already published, all based on text and only in the relevant technological segments. Highly likely inventions in promising technology segments can be identified and prioritized, turning IP costs into profits.

For corporate IP strategy and IP experts

Corporate IP Strategy

How is my company positioned and where can I achieve the greatest IP strength in a dynamic and competitive environment?

It is often about being the best, not necessarily the biggest. We precisely measure the position of companies in relation to the technology field and channel innovation into the most promising results. Starting from 500 predefined technology fields or based on customer-specific definitions, we provide a text-based conceptual breakdown of each technology field to identify which technology segment is the most promising and dynamic. We measure the competitive situation in each segment and find those with the best leverage ratio. In this segment, we can project existing or new draft, patent rough filings, or unpublished data in secured environments (text must not reach external databases or the cloud). Uniqueness scores, grant probabilities or citation predictions in the technology segment help prioritize the best candidates. EconSight’s proprietary iterative, AI-powered full-text search engine provides prompt results for the surrounding state of the art to complete every aspect of IP focus and get the most out of IP investments.
