IFI’s clients are in constant and continuous communication with the IFI primary database providing access to quality, up-to-date global patent data, the flagship dataset of the CLAIMS Direct platform. IFI's proprietary data architecture is the key to creating the industry's most complete and accurate view of a patent - all with virtually no client intervention. We address inaccuracies and formatting issues before the records enter our global patent database to create standardized data which can easily be integrated with existing applications, other datasets, or analysis software.
