The following section contains subjective comments about the system that represent our editor's opinions, and should not be viewed as fact. Editor's opinions include positive and negative judgments about the product written in consideration of wider context, including related products and the industry at large.

By offering users access to New Zealand patent documents as well as US, European Patent Office (EPO), and Patent Cooperation Treaty (WO/PCT) data, PatentAnalysis.com aims to offer users coverage they might not have access to on other search systems. Based in New Zealand, the site boasts a database of over 70 million records drawn from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the European Patent Office, INPADOC, the World Intellectual Property Organization, as well as the New Zealand, and Australia patent offices. PatentAnalysis.com com also features chemical search functions including SMiLES (Simplified Molecular Input Line Entry Specification) structure searching as well as chemical structure drawing using MarvinSketch.
The search engine ‘under the hood’ of PatentAnalysis.com supports common features such as Boolean operators AND, OR, and NOT, as well as single character wildcard (?), multiple character wildcard (*), and a fuzzy search operator (~) for finding terms similar to the query term.
The manner in which PatentAnalysis.com approaches the user registration and subscription process is interesting and fairly unique. While there are two user levels, Free and Full, all users who register on the site receive a free 7 day trial to test out the added functionality of the paid Full subscriber level (to learn more about what features are available with a subscription, see the Pricing section). Subscribers also have the option of viewing a “Potential Buyers Report”. When a subscribed user submits a search the option to view the potential buyers related to that technology appears above the search results.
