  • Patent number: 9298844
    Abstract: A system and method for optimizing mobile communications with one or more message recipients is disclosed. The system is configured to create a unique URL and send it to a message recipient via an appropriate communication platform. The system waits for the unique URL to be requested and logs information from the web browser associated with the mobile communication device used to access the unique URL. The system may use this information to direct the mobile device user to a dynamically created web page. This methodology can be used to improve immediate and future communications by tailoring the message content and communication platform according to the message recipient's mobile device. The dynamic web page may also be configured to prompt the message recipient to execute a desired action, including downloading a compatible mobile app and changing message delivery preferences in order to optimize communications with the message recipient.

  • Publication number: 20140379814
    Abstract: A system provides for the efficient delivery of messages from one or more message originators to one or more message recipients via a plurality of communication or messaging platforms. A message originator can create a single message and specify one or more message recipients, multiple communication platforms and delivery scheduling, all from a graphical user interface on a mobile communication device or a computer. The message will be formatted for the selected message recipients, the available and desired communication platforms in the desired priority order, and scheduled for delivery to the message recipients at selected time(s). Additionally, messages may be screened to reduce or eliminate potentially duplicate messages via one or more duplication filters. On the message recipient side, each message recipient can specify the desired communication platform and preference priority for receipt of messages, along with the desired timing for delivery of messages from each potential message originator.

  • Publication number: 20140330794
    Abstract: The various implementations of the present invention are provided as a computer-based system for content scoring. Content from a variety of source feeds may be considered for inclusion in an aggregated feed, based on the content of the source feed. The content of the source feed may be “scored” according to a variety of user-configurable options, thereby identifying the most valuable content from the source feeds for inclusion in the aggregated feed. For example, certain content elements may be extracted from a variety of source feeds and then combined to create an aggregated feed where the aggregated feed contains only the highest scoring elements, as determined by the feed creator, from the various source feeds are used to create the aggregated feed.

  • Publication number: 20130346333
    Abstract: The various implementations of the present invention are provided as a computer system configured to allow for sending requests for aid, responding to requests for aid, and receiving requests to aid in a multi-user environment. Various levels of requests may be requested. In one preferred embodiment of the present invention, a mobile application for integrating the options for requesting aid from a first device to a second is provided, as well as configuration of automated responses. The system allows certain users to post status updates to a website. While useful for many environments, the most preferred embodiments of the present invention are adapted for use in an educational environment to provide school administrators, teachers, parents, and students with enhanced communication capabilities.
