  • Patent number: 11107012
    Abstract: A system and method for displaying seat inventory at a venue and facilitating planning of ticket prices for events at the venue is presented. Methods to predict total revenue for an event are described. Also presented are systems and methods for determining at what price and when to release so-called ‘flex’ price tickets during an on-sale using the sales velocity and sales/inquiry ratios. Determining demand of seats from secondary markets is also described with methods to use the demand for either repricing the seats in the primary market or presenting ‘best value’ seats to a prospective purchaser.

  • Patent number: 11100432
    Abstract: A system and method for selecting inventory pricing for an event at a venue is disclosed. The method comprising determining a rate at which a first inventory of seats have sold for an event at a venue. The method further comprising calculating a demand for a secondary inventory of seats as a function of the rate at which the first inventory of seats sold, the seats of the first and second inventories being comparable in quality, provides a user interface to one or more client devices that displays the data. The method further comprising calculating a demand for a second inventory of seats as a function of the rate at which the first inventory of seats sold, the seats of the first and second inventories being comparable in quality.

  • Publication number: 20080091874
    Abstract: A method for booting into computer memory a non-operating system (O.S.) program from a hard disk drive (HDD) prior to booting into memory an O.S. from the HDD. The method includes establishing a table of contents (TOC) on the HDD that contains entries for special O.S. programs. A pointer to the TOC is placed in non-volatile memory of the computer that is associated with the HDD, and when BIOS of the computer is prompted to load into memory one of the special O.S. programs, the pointer is accessed and used to locate the TOC, which in turn is accessed to load the special O.S. program.
