Technology Scouting

GreyB offers R&D Managers, Technology scouting professionals, and Open Innovation Teams a new way to scout technologies – Kernel Scouting. Kernel scouting falls at the intersection of outsourced and in-house tech scouting approaches.

But if you are experiencing any of the following issues,
it’s time to think again:

The information you get is not helping you to take actions

You end up spending a lot of time on the output received from outside consultants

A lot of information has been dumped on you in the name of analysis

There are many false data points and you end up discarding the analysis

Not all companies/suppliers participate in your open innovation programs,

Startups you get or come across lack true innovation

Such issues come up if a consulting firm doesn’t relate well to your objective, they go silent after taking the project, don’t share the progress with you or take views from you or the internal team at your end, don’t bring you on board with the methodology, output, and look beyond superficial information to get deep insights.

Obviously, you are not looking for just another firm where you face such issues. Here are a few cases where we made a strong impact –

The Kernel scouting makes sure that our clients could marinate GreyB’s expertise in scouting technologies with their in-house teams’ understanding of the business, customers and other dynamics to:

What our clients think?

  • If I were to give you a testimonial, I will praise for your reporting format especially the level of detail you can capture in the analysis. Another aspect that struck a chord with me is how the file history was taken into account for understanding claim scope - this saves me time and shows your ability to do good work.

  • I don’t have much to add, most of my requirements are about good quality invalidation search as that’s what our firm is specialized in doing. The star point for me in your capability and services is how well you extend the search after my feedback in the invalidation projects. I am not sure if all companies follow this practice but I am quite happy to get your results and the routine feedback call you set up after the project is delivered.

  • Our corporate team has 4 divisions and we need a lot of work on the business use of patent data (Patent-Informatics). I got impressed with your dashboard capabilities, especially when you can ensure the accuracy of data behind the dashboard storyboards. This is quite a powerful tool with our internal customers as we need to present the patent picture very often.

  • As you know I work with you on FTO matters in consumer products industry. My project technologies are simpler but I need first turnaround times and clean reporting to make a go and no-go decisions. I am happy with the work I have been doing with you – it is good value for money and crisp reports, exactly what I want. Further, the particular point which has impressed me is – faster responses. I have told this earlier too but I reiterate the same point, you have made sure I get the reply same day, within few hours which is impressive
