  • Publication number: 20120041884
    Abstract: A method and system for processing an automotive warranty claim include capturing at least one digital image of a vehicle-related customer concern with a digital camera device. A barcode identifying the vehicle is scanned with a barcode scanning device. Upon establishing operable communication between a first computer and the digital camera device and the barcode scanning device, respectively, the at least one digital image and the barcode information are automatically downloaded into the first computer. Dialog is input into the first computer requesting warranty coverage for the customer concern. A claimset comprising the digital images, barcode and request for warranty coverage is transmitted to a second computer via a communication network. The claimset is reviewed at the second computer to decide whether warranty coverage will be provided. The claimset is updated with the decision and transmitted back to the first computer via the communication network.

  • Publication number: 20040155861
    Abstract: A portable display monitor having a flat panel display screen and an integral base/cover pivotally attached to each other. The base/cover covers and protects the display screen during non-use and especially during transit, and serves as a base for deployment of the flat panel display screen at appropriate viewing angles. In a preferred embodiment, the base/cover rotates around the back of the screen between 180 and 360 degrees from the closed position. The monitor is adapted for use with other devices such as portable computers, desktop computers and the like, so that the monitor may serve as a duplicate or auxiliary display viewable from a variety of locations, notably locations other than those which any display normally employed by the devices may be viewed. In other embodiments, the monitor supports other electronic functions such as auxiliary power.
