  • Publication number: 20130019284
    Abstract: A method for automating one or more web-based applications associated with unique identification (UID) displayed on objects and read with a wireless communication device able to connect to a remote server with no human intervention required after the UID is read is disclosed. The wireless communication device receives data from a remote source after it has been activated. Data is then sent to a remote server. The remote server is wirelessly coupled to the wireless communication device. The server comprises applications which perform operations based on the data received from the wireless communication device. User identification is sent from the wireless communication device and the server looks up user account information stored on the server in order to access and request web based applications to complete workflow on behalf of the user with no further human intervention, unless otherwise required by the web based application.
