  • Patent number: 10037556
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for generating a uniform resource identifier (“URI”) based on information relating to a transaction between two or more parties, and verifying the authenticity of the information embedded in the URI before generating a user interface to be displayed to one of the parties to the transaction. For example, the URI may include information relating to the terms of the transaction to which the parties have agreed. A system associated with a facilitator of the transaction may verify the authenticity of the terms embedded in the URI before dynamically generating a user interface that enables the transaction to proceed.

  • Publication number: 20040015371
    Abstract: A method and system of managing recruitment data provides an online application process that prohibits submission of a job application unless the applicant selects one or more available jobs. The applicant is also required to submit gender and ethnicity information. The applicant's information is stored in a database where it is related to jobs or job groups so that the employer can create a profile of the gender, ethnicity, and optionally other applicant data for applicants who apply for specified jobs or job groups. Preferably, the system also allows the employer to track similar information for new hires and thus profile an applicant pool and compare it to a profile of actual hires.
