Discover is one of the world's most comprehensive patent search engines, providing access to more than 95 million documents from 95 jurisdictions and the broadest range of full-text patent data.  With Discover 2.0, CPA Global has capitalised on its strong expertise in patent research to develop an even smarter and more sophisticated search platform with improved, time-saving functionality and delivering more relevant results than any other solution in the market.

The powerful search capabilities of Discover 2.0 are integrated into the prior art management modules of CPA Global's IP management software solutions, such as FoundationIP. By enabling patent references to be populated directly from a Discover search in this way, Discover 2.0 reduces administrative time by at least 50% and minimises the risk of data errors.

The newly designed, intuitive interface on Discover 2.0 makes it more easily accessible to professional searchers, research and development teams, and individual inventors, thereby significantly increasing the productivity of everyone involved in the innovation process.  Discover 2.0 provides a secure online environment for searchers, while enabling collaboration with colleagues and other authorised personnel.

Combining increased functionality with improved layouts and simplified processes, Discover 2.0 delivers enhanced performance and workflow, and an enriched user experience in a number of key areas, including the search interface, the individual record display, project folders, and the Image Browser (a unique feature for evaluating a search results list based upon figures and drawings).  Furthermore, Discover 2.0's advanced analytics tool can instantly identify technology trends and citation activity, as well as the most active companies, inventors and countries.

Mark Holt, Chief Technology Officer at CPA Global, said: "With the increasing pressure to maximise IP assets and R&D investment, patent search is an even more critical component of strategic IP management, helping ensure that an organisation's innovation focus is in line with its broader business goals. Discover continues to open up new horizons in patent search, bringing a wealth of key data to users' fingertips and making the search process faster and much more efficient."
