  • Patent number: 11587000
    Abstract: Event organizers must assign volunteers, staff, sub-contractors etc. over multiple roles, multiple shifts, and multiple locations. Assigning individuals, whether a few to hundreds or thousands, requires the user to filter through registration information and align this to the roles/shifts etc. This is further complicated when the registration forms used to acquire user data are custom questionnaires. Embodiments of the invention automatically generates custom filters for subsequently filtering of the entries made by registrants where the user generates custom questions. Further, embodiments of the invention allow the importation of data from other sources wherein if it includes fields not supported by the database into which the data is being imported the system automatically adds new custom fields to the database as well as supporting the establishment of new questionnaires, new custom filters, and triggering registration updates from existing registrants to acquire new data for the new custom fields.

  • Patent number: 11455188
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for task pruning that can be utilized in existing resource allocation systems to improve the systems' robustness without requiring changing to existing mapping heuristics. The pruning mechanism leverages a probability model, which calculates the probability of a task competing before its deadline in the presence of task dropping, and only schedules tasks that are likely to succeed. Pruning tasks whose chance of success is low improves the chance of success for other tasks. Tasks that are unlikely to succeed are either deferred from current scheduling event or are preemptively dropped from the system. The pruning method can benefit service providers by allowing them to utilize their resources more efficiently and use them only for tasks that can meet their deadlines. The pruning method further helps end users by making the system more robust in allowing more tasks to complete on time.

  • Patent number: 11341436
    Abstract: Systems and methods presented herein provide a server that receives a service request from a user device. The server matches the service request against one or more technician profiles. Then the server sends a message to a corresponding technician device to accept the service request and starts an acceptance timer. If the technician accepts, the server sends a control application to the user device for installation. The user can enter a PIN received from the server into the control application, which then shares control of the user device with the technician device. The technician device can cancel the service request during a grace period. Otherwise, the technician must complete the service request. The control application can notify the server whether the service request was completed, and the server can update a score in the technician profile accordingly.
