Orbit provides flexibility for the industrial property teams and makes it easy to extract and use the data. Particularly the links to the Patent Offices (WIPO, EPO) regarding the classification definitions simplifying prior art search or search in a specific field. On the same note, the direct access to the registered patents allows to directly define the ongoing protection of a family or identify the right of use.

I’ve used dozens of search systems over my 25 year career as a pharmaceutical information scientist and am impressed with Orbit’s robust search technology that allows me to precisely focus a search strategy using advanced proximity and nested Boolean queries. The highlighting feature saves a lot of time when reviewing the full text of patent documents, by zeroing in on the key phrases.
