More Info for Companies - Executive Summary
Innovation is a necessary element of prosperity, through the introduction of new products and services, as well as improvements in the productivity of land, labor, and capital. Technical knowledge, vital to innovation in most companies, is only rarely derived entirely from within the company, and is also rarely contained solely within the corporate memory.
Patents represent the largest technical library in the world. As a result, the information derived from patents is used by businesses each day to determine the investment of millions of dollars. This patent information directly impacts R & D, Sales and Marketing, and Finance. When used well, patents can provide managers and employees with a better sense of the best direction to focus resources, and can help them to work together to further develop and promote an invention that will improve the prosperity of the business. Quill & Disc helps companies improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their innovation by providing critical tools and insight into the world of patents, and brings the necessary tools and experience to support all facets of the company.
