  • Publication number: 20160366138
    Abstract: The Shared Internet Storage Resource provides Internet-based file storage, retrieval, access, control, and manipulation for a user. Additionally, an easy-to-use user interface is provided both for a browser or stand-alone application. The entire method provides means by which users can establish, use, and maintain files on the Internet in a manner remote from their local computers yet in a manner that is similar to the file manipulation used on their local computers. A high capacity or other storage system is attached to the Internet via an optional internal network that also serves to generate and direct metadata regarding the stored files. A web server using a CGI, Java®-based, or other interface transmits and retrieves TCP/IP packets or other Internet information through a load balancer/firewall by using XML to wrap the data packets. File instructions may be transmitted over the Internet to the Shared Resource System.

  • Publication number: 20080071606
    Abstract: A customer relationship management/CRM system enables a user thereof to focus more upon customers and clients instead of keeping track of such customers and clients. Upon initiating contact with a potential new customer or client, the new lead can be entered into the system and the user queried with respect to anticipated future activity. The present system then periodically queries the user with regards to the development and activities with regards to the lead. In doing so, the user is guided to pursue development of the potential customer and creates an ongoing written or recorded history by which retrospective evaluation can occur. The present invention can generally be applied in any industry that uses contact management systems.
