iJET gets patent boost

U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office (PTO) has granted iJET an enhancement, referred to
by the PTO as a continuation, that further strengthens its Travel
Information Method and Associated System patent. 
The continuation
broadens iJET’s existing patent to include the method by which the
company acquires, analyzes and utilizes travel information.

This continuation acknowledges the proprietary business processes behind
iJET’s Worldcue(r) Travel Risk Management solution, technology and
services that automatically relate global threats and incidents to
travelers’ itineraries.  Through real-time collection, collation and
dissemination of intelligence, travelers and their affiliated
organizations are alerted to threats or disruptions and provided
immediate access to advice, emergency response services and
communications capabilities.

Additionally, iJET has received notification of final allowance from the
PTO for its Global Asset Risk Management System and Method.  The systems
and methods protected by iJET’s first patent are aimed at protecting
travelers, while its Global Asset Risk Management systems and methods
address risks to an organization’s people, facilities, supply chains and
other physical assets worldwide.

“iJET has persistently delivered solutions for keeping customers’ people
and assets safe from harm,” said iJET CEO Bruce McIndoe.  “The
innovative systems and methods we’ve developed not only enable us to
better serve our clients year after year, but they support increased
efficiency and productivity.”

These allowances further protect iJET’s intellectual property and
validate its business model by recognizing both its foundational systems
and the related business processes as unique, protected properties.


“The original patent, the continuation, and this new patent are a
testament to iJET’s highly skilled team and to its mission to bring
leading edge technologies and business processes to market,” said Greg
Meyer, iJET CTO. 

iJET originally received notification of allowance for its travel risk
management system in August 2004. The patent was formally issued in
January 2005.
