Patents are expensive. Before you start the process, you’ll likely do an initial search to confirm your invention is indeed novel and non-obvious. You can do this in-house, or you may use an outside firm that offers these services at a low cost. But what are you getting for your money? How do you know?

There are three critical numbers that you should track to know if you’re getting good results:

  • Rate of Allowance
  • Rate of RCEs
  • Rate of Appeals

Over time, these metrics can highlight shortcomings in your prior art search results and may indeed tell you that you need a new solution. PatentAdvisor™ can help you get those numbers that you need.
