The Ambercite story
We founded Ambercite to commercialise the ideas of company founder Doris Spielthenner and make patent searching and analytics more accessible and accurate. Doris had a background in the application of advanced social network analytics, and realised that similar principles could be developed and then disrupt the status quo of patent searching and analysis.
Other co-founders brought backgrounds in video gaming (bringing you intuitive interfaces), big data analytics (bringing you far-reaching, real time insights) and patent law and practice. This unique combination of backgrounds ensured that Ambercite had the technical and patent law underpinnings to create a truly innovative product.
A fantastic tool for technical/IP folk in terms of opportunity finding and to establish the landscape; in terms of how active an area is already and who potentially owns patents in that area, including who files good patents in that area. It’s also good for company landscape searches, and indicating how strong competition is in a particular area. It works well with Google patents” - IP manager, global manufacturing company.
"I can not appreciate how much work and time this program has saved us. Its capability to analyse all possible relevant patents in accordance to timeline, key words and other means are a great filtering tool. The degree of relevance highlighted by the thickness and type of arrows are even more helpful in eventually pinpointing a possible IP area to target the new technology" - Kishan Nawzidh, Monash University
