Company Summary

Most corporate leaders say product innovation is a top priority for driving bottom line growth. But today, engineers are relying on a hit or miss strategy to come up with diverse new products. Our software is based on research conducted by Dr. Anthony McCaffrey (UMass Amherst, NSF Grants) to help Engineers and Lawyers identify novel new product ideas using patented analogous search techniques to create new products and drive new revenue.
