There are lots of different ways to begin your report in Cipher, and where you start depends on the problem you're trying to solve, or the question you're trying to answer.

The main locations to start your report are the three report tiles at the top of your Cipher dashboard, when you first sign into Cipher:

New Report Tile

This is your starting point if you have a selected organisation or multiple owners in mind, key word search, custom portfolios and/or a patent upload as your starting point for your report. To these portfolios, you can then apply classifiers to your report to find patent families of particular technologies, or generate a clustered report to group similar patent families into technology clusters.

Quick Organisation Search

This is your starting point if you want to generate a quick overview of an organisation's portfolio, which is then compared to seven similar companies (based on links in citations between the portfolios).

In this report, the starting organisation's portfolio is clustered to group similar patent families into technology clusters. The seven similar organisation's portfolios are then grouped into these technology clusters formed by the target organisation. Any assets for these seven organisations that are not similar to the target organisation, are then grouped into the 'unrelated' cluster in the report. Click here to find out more.

Global Landscape report

This is your starting point if you wish to search the whole world of patents for owners in a particular technology area. This feature runs up to 10 classifiers against every patent family with a priority date since 1985 (roughly 45 million patent families) and so starts with the technology/business unit/product classifier and searches for all results globally. You do require at least one classifier in your account to have this tile and report type available to you. Click here to find out more.
