Pelent’s Portfolio Analyzer provides an overall portfolio snapshot including Patent Rating metrics and a ‘floorplan’ visualization which allows users to hone into technology areas with the highest concentration of valuable patents.
The Quickview URL provides a dynamic link for viewing the snapshot – placing the cursor onto any of the blocks provides a technical description of the selected block, the number of patents and ratings within the block.
Patent Rating metrics
Patent Checkup uses a Patent Rating scale “A” through “D”. A-rated patents represent patents with the highest value, B-rated patents have medium value, C-rated patents have low value and D-rated patents are unlikely to have value.
Overall portfolio metrics are shown on the left. A color-coded bar graph illustrates the number and percentage of A-rated (green), B-rated(yellow), C-rated(red) and D-rated (grey) patents.
The rectangular Portfolio Floorplan illustrates the composition of the portfolio and includes all the patents in the portfolio.
Each block in the layout represents a different technology group. The IPC technology group for the block is shown in the top left corner.
The color is determined by the highest rating for the patents located within the block/technology group.
The block size is proportional to the number of patents within the block — the larger the block size, the higher the number of patents.
