Non-patent Literature (NPL) - Computer Software

Ensemble IP’s software engineers are experts in computer software patents and conduct complex prior art patent searches. We specialize in computing and in cutting-edge financial, insurance, manufacturing, and distribution processes. Our team uses their experience and tools to access extensive non-patent literature (NPL) sources such as the ACM Digital Library, Compendex, IEEE Xplore, and Inspec.

Some of the most active areas where we conduct patent and technical literature searches are:

  • Automated financial transactions
  • Internet-related software applications development
  • Object-oriented software tools and systems
  • Coordination of hardware and software systems
  • Electronic commerce across multiple networks
  • Sophisticated point-of-sale (POS) systems
