Carlsbad, California (PRWEB) June 27, 2014

LocationSmart®, the leading provider of cloud-based location and interactivity services, has announced the issuance of US Patent 8,666,373 by the US Patent Office, for location reporting based on the dynamic status of a user. The patent covers a system and method of determining location for the user including dynamically determining a status of the user and allowing acquisition of the users location based on the determined status. The issued patent enhances LocationSmarts cloud-based, cross-carrier location and interactivity platform that is powering the enterprise with location insights through a comprehensive set of web services application programming interfaces (APIs).

This patent further covers the location reporting of a person based on a dynamically monitored status; for example, when an employee is on the job versus when the employee is on his or her own time. Reporting is responsive to the received location tracking request, based on current status and allowed permissions. This is significantly instrumental for monitoring and managing mobile workforces.

Knowledge of when to obtain location information based on dynamically changing status is fundamental to several of our key verticals," said Mario Proietti, CEO of LocationSmart. "This patent strengthens the protection and rendering of our services for mobile check-ins and status reporting in the workforce management and transportation sectors."
The LocationSmart platform is employed by leading companies in a number of industries, enabling a multitude of applications including service assistance, proximity marketing, workforce check-ins, emergency alerting, mobile gaming and transaction verification.
