  • Patent number: 10909138
    Abstract: A qualifying system receives a channel activity record from one of a plurality of different external systems, over one of a plurality of different communication channels. It accesses qualification rules to determine whether the channel activity record is to be transformed into one or more target entities in a computing system. If so, a conversion engine accesses user-configurable mappings and conversion rules to identify conversion actions that are to be taken in order to transform the channel activity record into one or more target entities. The conversion engine performs a data transformation on the channel activity record to transform it into the identified one or more target entities.

  • Patent number: 7802505
    Abstract: A power tool includes a housing assembly having a housing portion and an arm extending upwardly from the housing portion. The arm has an outer surface. The power tool also includes a drive unit supported by the arm. The drive unit is operable to drive a tool element to work on a work piece. The power tool further includes a collection assembly operable to collect debris generated by the tool element working on the work piece. The collection assembly includes a collection chute assembly having an inlet and an outlet. The collection chute assembly is positionable on the arm to define, between the inlet and the outlet, a first path for debris around one side of the outer surface of the arm and a second path for debris around the other side of the outer surface of the arm.
