Establishing a search department in Bangalore, India
Philips Intellectual Property & Standards (IP&S) decided in 2001 to start a search department in Bangalore to cope with an increasing amount of novelty searches and as a more attractive alternative to outsourcing. Bangalore was chosen for the availability of a Philips infrastructure, well educated people and a comfortable cost level. Supported by the efforts of the existing staff, the WON/GO training and a mature management system, a stable well performing search department is now in place.
