You asked, we acted

Twice a year, we send out a customer delight survey to understand how we can serve you better. Below are a few new initiatives we’ve launched based on your feedback. Your next opportunity to provide us with feedback through our customer surveys will start on October 12, 2021.

Improved data quality

You told us that accurate, high-quality information is critical.


Proof Point: The improved patent to literature citation — linking from Derwent Innovation Index (DII) content in the Web of Science — has increased the number of citations linked to the correct journal by 50% and with an accuracy of 99%.

Better user experience

You asked for a better user experience with our products. We’ve made several updates to a wide range of our products and have developed product roadmaps for each of our core product lines.

Addressing a large amount of customer feedback, the new platform delivers enhanced speed and accessibility, improved usability and new features and content including article recommendations, funding data, and enriched cited references.

Improved responsiveness

You asked for information that gets to customers faster.


Proof Point: We see improvements in timeliness over recent months, reducing the time for content to be “available” in our products. We’ve also sped up the automated acquisition of data and content for large publishers.
