Global Intellectual Property information specialist Minesoft has released a new, improved version of CiteTracker, the only application on the market able to automatically track and identify newly published patent citations.

Patent citations can provide a valuable insight into competitor activity and opportunities and threats around technology areas of interest. Tracking patent citations forms an important part of an organisation’s competitive intelligence strategy and CiteTracker – launched originally at the end of 2014 – allows users to be automatically alerted to new citations of interest each week as they are added to patent documents.
