  • Patent number: 7386476
    Abstract: Systems and methods allow small businesses and other buyers to aggregate their purchases to obtain volume discounts from suppliers. The systems are especially beneficial to small businesses that may be unable to obtain any discounted price on their own. The systems reduce transaction costs, improve efficiencies, increases revenue, and provides a more accurate process to buyers and suppliers. The systems are preferably operated by an entity that already has relationships with many of the small businesses and other buyers and possibly with one or more of the suppliers. The operating entity enjoys the reduced prices and other buyer benefits and may additionally receive rebates or extra discounts from the suppliers. The operating entity also can generate goodwill with its existing customers, retain those customers, and acquire new customers.

  • Patent number: 7340037
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for correlating work orders. One embodiment includes communicating with a communications network and acquiring new work order information representing a new work order. The new work order information is searched for at least one correlation parameter. A database of existing work orders is also searched for the at least one correlation parameter. The new work order information is grouped with existing work order information that shares the at least one correlation parameter and that has a date and time stamp within a predetermined interval of a date and time stamp of the new work order. The process, therefore, correlates the new work order with an existing work order having the at least one correlation parameter and a similar date and time stamp.
