Fuze gets patent for management of contact information



Fuze, the cloud-based communications platform provider for the modern global enterprise, has announced it has been awarded a new patent related to its advanced method of streamlining the management of contact information on clients´ devices, the company said.

With this patent, Fuze is building on its commitment to unlock relevant business systems across an organization to deliver contextual insights to everyone in the organization through the Fuze cloud communications platform.

The patented approach includes comparing a contact in a device´s address book with the contact in a server´s address book. If there is only one matching contact on the server, Fuze technology merges any differing data and sends the updated data back to the device. If there are multiple matching contacts on the server, it selects the matching contact having the highest confidence value and sends that contact´s data to the device.

Fuze is a global, cloud-based unified communications platform that empowers productivity and delivers insights across the enterprise by enabling simplified business voice communications, flexible video conferencing, and always-on collaboration.
