Technology Scouting Services

Technology scouting is a process of analyzing and finding a way from the available information to predict and build a new technology with the purpose of strengthening the company’s patent portfolio. To adapt to the technological evolution, the company must innovate regularly to remain at the top of the pyramid.  

Continuous research and development are required to investigate alternative solutions to existing problems or to find a new technological solution.  

The primary objective of the technology scouting process is to analyze the characteristic parameters or challenges of technology, locate all possible solutions to the challenges, and analyze the feasibility of the solutions to the challenges in line with a company’s internal capabilities. 

TT Consultants has been involved in projects associated with technology scouting. We have extremely qualified domain experts with higher degree holders having experience analyzing a wide range of technologies, collaborations, and licensing opportunities.  

Further, we also have an AI / ML powered in-house repository for automatic analysis and extraction of relevant data with a one-step solution.

Technology benchmarking & scouting and identifying promising technology

An enterprise is continuously innovating and expanding to achieve growth and success. Before planning the expansion, an enterprise must overcome the challenges and evaluate the internal and external strengths and weaknesses corresponding to the zone. 

The technology/patent scouting services help and guide the company to prevent future investment loss. To avoid such huge losses, we analyze the evolution of technology over the years and provide an effective insight regarding the promising technologies having growth opportunities. 

We here at TT consultants, provide effective insights relating to the identification of promising technology and its branches, its evolution over the years along with the pioneers, competitors' activity, market and business intelligence with the anticipation of the enterprise’s growth. 

Further, we have created an AI/ML powered Tool as a one click solution for finding the relevant information. 

Triz based approach​

Generally, an enterprise constantly tries to improve product efficiency. The improvement process takes place by overcoming the existing challenges that a product is facing. While working on the improvement process, some companies may not achieve the desired result as expected. 

TT Consultants provides feasible solutions for the challenges faced by industries using a Triz-based approach. We perform reverse engineering and fragment technologies into different segments or challenges followed by an investigation of solutions in the cross domains as well. 

Furthermore, the offered solutions are analyzed from a feasibility perspective so that there are high chances of practical implementation within the industry. 

Potential resource identification​

A company’s R&D Team continuously innovates to enhance the quality of the products and processes for dominating the industry. 

In some cases, the R&D Team may depend on the external resource for knowledge and innovation relating to the alternative feasible solutions for the challenges. 

We at TT consultants provide guidance for licensing or buying opportunities such as patent scouting through a list of potential external resources like individuals, universities, research institutes, and SMEs having IP protection for the solution. 

We use our XLSCOUT Tool for analyzing the IP activity in a technology and creating a list of promising external resources for collaborations in an effective way.
