Minesoft provides Intellectual Property information, solutions, and services, including patent search and analysis, patent monitoring, competitive intelligence systems, knowledge management systems, and more. “We have developed our platforms to enable both professional searchers and business executives to quickly gain the ability to answer business-critical questions in the timeliest manner,” mentions Ophir Daniel, the Co-Founder of Minesoft Ltd, the awardee for UK Gamechanger of the Year from ACQ5 in 2020. The company’s PatBase is a searchable database of patent documents designed by experts in the complex art of patent information research. Since its inception in 2003, PatBase has attracted over 70,000 users worldwide. The primary search tool has been built on a robust platform to assist clients in performing intuitive searches of the amalgamated data and review, comment, share, and analyze business-critical patent information that can propel business units to make better informed strategic decisions. The solution is easily deployable with the provision of free training and a highly adept support team in parallel with clients’ in-house team throughout the transition process. Over the years, Minesoft has expanded its portfolio of innovative patent information products to include PatBase Express, PatentOrder, PatDocs, IPShare, PatentTracker, Legal StatusTracker, CiteTracker, Chemical Explorer, Pat-KM, APIs, and PatBase Analytics.
Whether it is a small or big update, Minesoft often collaborates with clients to build new solutions or adapt to suit user preferences. For example, the knowledge management platform, Pat-KM was built because there was a demand from legal professionals for a solution to foster collaboration and centralise patent information internally. Also, more recently, a big update was added to the document delivery platform—PatDocs—to expand the translation tool. Now, users can order machine-translated documents from over 25 jurisdictions.
Seeing a need in the market for a solution to automate time-consuming manual IP legal work, Minesoft’s in-house development team worked with an expert patent agent in the U.S. to develop PatDocs.
“It is a first-of-its-kind patent data platform for all IP professionals that utilises proprietary artificial intelligence developed by Minesoft—designed to complement all advanced patent database search platforms such as PatBase,” mentions Daniel. “Automated systems in our products at large help to relieve the hefty workload of IP professionals.” Minesoft offers solutions to professionals across the entire IP lifecycle, throughout R&D, Legal, and commercialization; this is what makes clients gravitate towards the company.

Minesoft has worked to constantly develop platforms to enable both professional searchers and business executives to quickly gain the ability to answer business-critical questions in the timeliest manner. “We are very fortunate and thankful for having customers who consider us their partner and routinely provide constructive feedback which is in the best interest of all parties,” says Daniel. Further, Minesoft’s unlimited customer support is a key service that regularly publishes helpful guides, videos, and other resources for customers to refer to, as well as host weekly training webinars, personalised training-on-demand online or in-person where possible. No wonder that the company received national and international awards for Best Overall Company of the year (Regional Chamber of Commerce) as well as Legal Tech Company of the Year from ACQ5 in 2019.
Minesoft recently expanded its presence in the German and American markets with the formations of Minesoft GmbH and Minesoft LLC, and in 2021, its support team will be expanding the suite of online training/e-learning solutions for customers as many continue to work remotely due to COVID-19. The regular strategic IP webinars, product training webinars, and the Minesoft Knowledge Hub platform have been very well received by Minesoft’s customers. “Our team expects to soon be able to return to travelling to our valued customers for in-house training, roadshows and conferences around the world,” concludes Daniel.
