  • Patent number: 10365796
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing a graphical user interface involve, for example, one or more processors displaying on a display screen a visualization of a hub element defined in part by an arc-shaped boundary portion and defining a badge element within the visualization of the hub element. Thereafter, a radial menu element may be animated by the one or more processors for rotation to a position adjacent and extending radially from the arc-shaped boundary portion of the hub element and defined in part by an arc-shaped boundary portion of the radial menu element spaced apart from the arc-shaped boundary portion of the hub element.

  • Patent number: 10346823
    Abstract: Methods and systems for activating an electronic payments infrastructure employ, for example, a token consisting at least in part of a unique identifier assigned to an inactive header account which is provided on a customer's electronic device. The unique identifier is processable via a transaction processing network. A request, which includes customer information, is received to verify that activation of the header account for the customer is compliant with predefined customer identification rules. A determination is made that activation of the header account for the customer is compliant with the predefined customer identification rules. An activation message is sent to the customer's device using the interface processor, the header account is linked to a digital wallet on a database, and the customer's designation of a source account for the digital wallet is received on the database. The header account can be used in transactions with either on-us or off-us source accounts.

  • Patent number: 10346006
    Abstract: Methods and systems for providing graphical user interfaces (GUIs) displaying and manipulating visualizations of data involve, for example, displaying, in a graphical user interface, a visually static element representing a risk function threshold value and an animatible element representing a current magnitude of a variable risk function value spaced a distance from the visually static element that is proportional to a difference between the risk function threshold value and the current magnitude of the variable risk function value, and animating the animatible element to change its distance from the visually static element by an amount proportional to a change in the current magnitude of the variable risk function value.

  • Publication number: 20190035025
    Abstract: Systems and methods involve an intelligent application mapping function of a central platform that maps a direct interactive electronic communication channel between an issuer terminal and an investor terminal based at least partly on investor positions in the issuer held by respective custodial intermediaries in a chain of custodial intermediaries for the investor. Thereafter, an intelligent application notification function of the platform transmits, via the direct interactive electronic communication channel to the investor terminal, data representing a notification regarding a meeting for the issuer, and an intelligent application voting function of the platform returns, from the investor terminal via the direct interactive electronic communication channel to the processor of the issuer terminal, data representing an exercise of investor voting rights associated with the investor positions for the investor.

  • Patent number: 9842230
    Abstract: A system and method of guaranteeing the presence of secure and tamper-proof remote files over a distributed communication medium, such as the Internet, is provided. The system and method automatically detects, and then self-repairs corrupt, modified or non-existent remote files. The method first performs an integrity check on a remote file and then determines whether the integrity check passed. If the integrity check passed, then the user goes through the authentication process as normal. If the integrity check fails, then the present invention redirects to an install module in order to prepare to reinstall the remote file. Via the install module, the present invention then reinstalls the remote file and the user is then taken through the authentication process as normal.

  • Patent number: 9477385
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing a graphical user interface involve, for example, defining, using a processor coupled to memory, a threshold distance between windows on a display screen at which a mutual attraction between the windows is activated to draw the windows together as components of a picture of windows. Also using the processor, all windows of a same functional type that are components of the picture of windows are resized simultaneously without affecting the size of windows of other functional types that are also components of the picture of windows. Likewise using the processor, all windows on the display screen are maintained in an active state regardless of a focus of a user input device.
