Abstract

A lifestyle application platform receives consumer information from a user device associated with a consumer, where the consumer information includes preference, demographic, identity, relationship, transactional, and location information associated with the consumer. The lifestyle application platform creates a consumer profile for the consumer based on the consumer information, and receives enterprise information from an enterprise device associated with an enterprise, where the enterprise information includes consumer interaction, transaction, and wish list information associated with the enterprise. The lifestyle application platform performs an analysis of the consumer information and the enterprise information, and provides, to the user device, notifications, reports, and offers, associated with the enterprise and relevant to the consumer, based on the analysis.

Description

    RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims priority under 35 U.S.C. §119 based on U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61/581,916, filed Dec. 30, 2011, the disclosure of which is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.
  • BACKGROUND
  • Consumers today utilize a variety of devices, such as desktop computers, smart phones, tablet computers, etc., to access online services (e.g., email applications, Internet services, television services, etc.), purchase products, services, and/or content online, and/or perform other online tasks. Information associated with the consumers (e.g., personal information, credit card numbers, etc.) may be shared with enterprises (e.g., businesses, government agencies, etc.) that provide such products, services, and/or content so that the consumers can access and interact with the enterprises in an efficient manner. However, many consumers do not permit such information to be shared with enterprises even when the enterprises may provide valuable products, services, and/or content to the consumers. One reason that consumers do not share their information is the fear that the information may be used for improper purposes, such as credit card theft, identity theft and fraud purposes, etc.
  • Enterprises are constantly trying to find out as much about consumers as possible so that such companies can market appropriate products, services, and/or content to the consumers. However, most enterprises know very little about the consumers of their products, services, and/or content. Until consumers permit their information to be readily shared with the enterprises, neither consumers nor the enterprises will benefit from the information.
  • Consumer concern about privacy (e.g., tracking, unexplained observation and aggregation of data, etc.) is high and may adversely impact many enterprises. A baseline of clear protections for consumers provides greater certainty for both consumers and enterprises. As envisioned, consumer rights may include individual control, transparency, respect for context, security, access and accuracy, focused collection of data, and accountability. Consumers may have the right to exercise control over what personal data enterprises collect from the consumers and how the enterprises use the personal data. Consumers may also have the right to expect that the personal data will be collected, used, and disclosed in ways that are consistent with a context in which the consumers provide the personal data.
  • Context-aware computing is the concept of leveraging context information about a consumer (e.g., utilizing a variety of devices) to improve a quality of an interaction with an enterprise. Context-aware computing may include a method by which new experiences are constructed that blend information from mobile, social, digital, and physical world sources.

  • The anonymous identity information may include information that may not identify the consumer. For example, the anonymous identity information may include a credit score associated with the consumer, a purchase history of the consumer, geo-location information associated with user device 210, a browsing history of the consumer, a propensity score associated with the consumer, an influence score associated with the consumer, etc. The pseudonymous identity information may include information that partially identifies the consumer. For example, the pseudonymous identity information may include personal data identified by the consumer (e.g., age, home address, etc.); consumer profile information (e.g., created by lifestyle application platform 230); consumer preferences for particular products, services, and/or content; consumer purchase intentions (e.g., a price range for a product, a specific type of product, etc.); social network IDs associated with the consumer; personas associated with the consumer; etc. The legal identity information may include information that completely identifies the consumer. For example, the legal identity information may include a full name of the consumer, contact information of the consumer, an IP address of user device 210, a driver's license number of the consumer, a social security number of the consumer, etc. The legal identity information may or may not include other sensitive information of the consumer, such as credit card numbers, medical information, account numbers, secret questions, passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs), etc. associated with the consumer. The consumer may have control over the information provided in customer information 410, and may opt-in or opt-out of the relationship with lifestyle application platform 230 at any time.
  • In one example implementation, lifestyle application platform 230 may enable the consumer to select a different type of identity information (e.g., anonymous, pseudonymous, or legal) to share with enterprises on an enterprise-by-enterprise basis, a transaction-by-transaction basis, each time user device 210 utilizes lifestyle application platform 230, etc. Further details of selecting different types of identity information are provided below in connection with, for example, FIGS. 5-7. As further shown in FIG. 4, user device 210 may provide consumer information 410 to lifestyle application platform 230.
  • Lifestyle application platform 230 may receive consumer information 410, and may create a consumer profile and a single authentication ID for the consumer based on consumer information 410. The single authentication ID may include a password, a thumbprint, a voice command, a retinal scan, etc. associated with the consumer. Lifestyle application platform 230 may enable user device 210 (e.g., via the lifestyle application) to access, view, and/or modify the consumer profile. The consumer may access the consumer profile and/or the functionality of lifestyle application platform 230 by providing (e.g., via user device 210) the single authentication ID to lifestyle application platform 230.
  • In one example, lifestyle application platform 230 may utilize the consumer's name, email address, telephone number, home address, etc. (e.g., provided in consumer information 410) to create the consumer profile. Lifestyle application platform 230 may associate a unique identifier (e.g., an alphabetical identifier, a numeric identifier, an alphanumeric identifier, etc.) with the consumer profile. Lifestyle application platform 230 may then populate the consumer profile with the brand preferences, enterprise preferences, relationship information, etc. provided by consumer information 410. Lifestyle application platform 230 may credit an appropriate amount of money to an electronic wallet associated with the consumer profile, and may award appropriate brand loyalty points (e.g., points that enable the consumer to receive benefits from enterprises) to the consumer profile.
  • Enterprise device 220 may be associated with an enterprise, and may provide enterprise information 420 to lifestyle application platform 230. Enterprise information 420 may include offers for products, services, and/or content provided by the enterprise; information associated with consumer interactions with the enterprise (e.g., consumer profiles, consumer information gathered by the enterprise, etc.); information associated with consumer transactions with the enterprise; information associated with consumer wish lists for products, services, and/or content provided by the enterprise; etc.
  • Lifestyle application platform 230 may receive enterprise information 420, and may analyze consumer information 410 and enterprise information 420. In one example implementation, lifestyle application platform 230 may compare consumer information 410 and enterprise information 420, and may determine whether any portion of consumer information 410 matches any portion of enterprise information 420. For example, if consumer information 410 indicates that the consumer is interested in a particular product offered by the enterprise, lifestyle application platform 230 may determine that information associated with the particular product should be provided to the consumer. Alternatively, or additionally, lifestyle application platform 230 may associate consumer information 410 with enterprise information 420 by comparing consumer information 410 with enterprise information 420. Lifestyle application platform 230 may determine an appropriate product, service, and/or content to provide to the consumer based on the association of consumer information 410 with enterprise information 420.
  • Based on the analysis, lifestyle application platform 230 may generate, from enterprise information 420, enterprise information 430 (e.g., notifications, reports, offers, etc. for products, services, and/or content provided by the enterprise) relevant to the consumer. Lifestyle application platform 230 may provide the relevant enterprise information 430 to user device 210, and user device 210 may display the relevant enterprise information 430 to the consumer.

  • In the example of FIG. 7, assume that a consumer associated with user device 210 has utilized the lifestyle application to select anonymous identity information to share with car dealers, associated with car dealer enterprise devices 220. Thus, when the consumer (e.g., via user device 210) provides, to lifestyle application platform 230, a wish list 710 for a type of car within a price range, lifestyle application platform 230 may retrieve anonymous identity information associated with the consumer. For example, lifestyle application platform 230 may generate an anonymous request 720 based on wish list 710. Anonymous request 720 may include information that may not identify the consumer (e.g., a credit score associated with the consumer) and the information provided in wish list 710. Lifestyle application platform 230 may provide anonymous request 720 to one or more car dealer enterprise devices 220. Thus, the consumer may attempt to locate the type of car within the price range without revealing the identity of the consumer. Such an arrangement may prevent user device 210 and the consumer from receiving unwanted solicitations from the car dealers.
  • Car dealer enterprise devices 220 may receive anonymous request 720, and the car dealers may determine whether to respond to anonymous request 720. For example, the first car dealer may not respond to anonymous request 720, as indicated by reference number 730, if the first car dealer does not have the requested car in the requested price range. However, the second car dealer may respond to anonymous request 720 since the second car dealer may have the requested car in the requested price range. Accordingly, the second car dealer enterprise device 220-2 may provide an offer 740 for the type of car to lifestyle application platform 230. Lifestyle application platform 230 may provide offer 740 to user device 210, and user device 210 may display offer 740 to the consumer.

Alternatively, or additionally, some or all of process 1700 may be performed by another device or group of devices, including or excluding lifestyle application platform 230.
  • As shown in FIG. 17, process 1700 may include receiving preference, demographic, identity, relationship, and location information associated with consumer (block 1710), and creating a consumer profile and single authentication ID for the consumer based on the consumer information (block 1720). For example, in an implementation described above in connection with FIG. 4, a consumer may provide consumer information 410 to user device 210. Consumer information 410 may include brand preferences, demographic information, identity information, relationship information, etc. associated with the consumer. User device 210 may add information to consumer information 410, such as location information and/or capability information associated with user device 210. User device 210 may provide consumer information 410 to lifestyle application platform 230. Lifestyle application platform 230 may receive consumer information 410, and may create a consumer profile and a single authentication ID for the consumer based on consumer information 410. The single authentication ID may include a password, a thumbprint, a voice command, a retinal scan, etc. associated with the consumer.
  • As further shown in FIG. 17, process 1700 may include receiving consumer interaction, transaction, and wish list information associated with an enterprise (block 1730), and performing an analysis of the consumer information and the enterprise information (block 1740). For example, in an implementation described above in connection with FIG. 4, lifestyle application platform 230 may receive enterprise information 420, and may analyze consumer information 410 and enterprise information 420. In one example, lifestyle application platform 230 may compare consumer information 410 and enterprise information 420, and may determine whether any portion of consumer information 410 matches any portion of enterprise information 420. For example, if consumer information 410 indicates that the consumer is interested in a particular product offered by the enterprise, lifestyle application platform 230 may determine that information associated with the particular product should be provided to the consumer.
  • Returning to FIG. 17, process 1700 may include providing relevant notifications, reports, and offers to the consumer based on the analysis (block 1750), and providing relevant consumer profile data to the enterprise based on the analysis (block 1760). For example, in an implementation described above in connection with FIG. 4, based on the analysis, lifestyle application platform 230 may generate, from enterprise information 420, enterprise information 430 (e.g., notifications, reports, offers, etc. for products, services, and/or content provided by the enterprise) relevant to the consumer. Lifestyle application platform 230 may provide the relevant enterprise information 430 to user device 210, and user device 210 may display the relevant enterprise information 430 to the consumer. Based on the analysis, lifestyle application platform 230 may generate, from consumer information 410, consumer information 440 (e.g., consumer profile data) relevant to the enterprise. Lifestyle application platform 230 may provide the relevant consumer information 440 to enterprise device 220, and enterprise device 220 may display the relevant consumer information 440 to a user associated with the enterprise.
  • Process block 1740 may include the process blocks depicted in FIG. 18. As shown in FIG. 18, process block 1740 may include associating the consumer information with the enterprise information (block 1800), and determining an appropriate product, service, and/or content to provide to the consumer based on the association (block 1810). For example, in an implementation described above in connection with FIG. 4, lifestyle application platform 230 may associate consumer information 410 with enterprise information 420 by comparing consumer information 410 with enterprise information 420. Lifestyle application platform 230 may determine an appropriate product, service, and/or content to provide to the consumer based on the association of consumer information 410 with enterprise information 420. In some implementations, lifestyle application platform 230 may determine the most appropriate product, service, and/or content to provide to the consumer, based on available products, services, and/or content.
  • FIGS. 19A-19H are diagrams of example user interfaces 1900-1970 that may be generated or provided by user device 210 (e.g., via the lifestyle application). User interfaces 1900-1970 may include graphical user interfaces (GUIs) or non-graphical user interfaces, such as text-based interfaces. User interfaces 1900-1970 may provide information to users via customized interfaces (e.g., proprietary interfaces) and/or other types of interfaces (e.g., browser-based interfaces, etc.). User interfaces 1900-1970 may receive user inputs via one or more input devices, may be user-configurable (e.g., a user may change the sizes of user interfaces 1900-1970, information displayed in user interfaces 1900-1970, color schemes used by user interfaces 1900-1970, positions of text, images, icons, windows, etc., in user interfaces 1900-1970, etc.), and/or may not be user-configurable. Information associated with user interfaces 1900-1970 may be selected and/or manipulated by a consumer associated with user device 210 (e.g., via a touch screen display, a mouse, a keyboard, a keypad, voice commands, etc.).
  • In one example, user interfaces 1900-1970 may depict information associated with a hotel check in scenario. Assume that the consumer associated with user device 210 previously reserved a room at a particular hotel (e.g., M Hotels) via lifestyle application platform 230. Accordingly, lifestyle application platform 230 may store all of the information associated with the consumer's reservation. Lifestyle application platform 230 may interact with user device 210 to provide information displayed in one or more of user interfaces 1900-1970.
  • When the consumer approaches the hotel with user device 210, location information associated with user device 210 may trigger lifestyle application platform 230 to provide a notification to user device 210. For example, as shown in FIG. 19A, the notification may cause user device 210 to display user interface 1900. User interface 1900 may display a notification asking whether the consumer wishes to check into the hotel (e.g., “Hi Mary Wise. Welcome to M New York. Are you ready to check in?”) If the consumer selects “Check In” on user interface 1900, user interface 1910 of FIG. 19B may be displayed to the consumer. User interface 1910 may display a “check in now” window to the consumer.
  • If the consumer selects the “check in now” window of FIG. 19B, user interface 1920 of FIG. 19C may be displayed to the consumer. User interface 1920 may request that the consumer provide a thumbprint (or some other verification mechanism) to verify an identity of the consumer. If the consumer provides a thumbprint and lifestyle application platform 230 verifies the consumer thumbprint, user interface 1930 of FIG. 19D may be displayed to the consumer. User interface 1930 may provide the consumer with an option to receive an electronic room key or to unlock the door to the consumer's hotel room. Since the consumer does not have the electronic room key yet, the consumer may elect to receive the electronic room key.
  • When the consumer elects to receive the electronic room key, lifestyle application platform 230 may provide the electronic room key to user device 210 and user interface 1940 of FIG. 19E may be displayed to the consumer. User interface 1940 may indicate that user device 210 has received the electronic room key and that the electronic room key is ready for use. Lifestyle application platform 230 may provide information associated with the reservation in user interface 1950 of FIG. 19F. User interface 1950 may display, to the consumer, a room number (e.g., Room #222), an option to call the front desk, directions, an option to open the door to the room, etc. If the user selects the option to open the door to the room, user interface 1960 of FIG. 19G may be displayed to the consumer. User interface 1960 may provide the consumer with option to receive an electronic room key or to unlock the door to the consumer's hotel room. Since the consumer has the electronic room key, the consumer may elect to unlock the door to the hotel room. When the consumer elects to unlock the door, the consumer may tap user device 210 against a lock of the door, and the electronic room key (e.g., provided to user device 210) may unlock the door. Once the door is unlocked, lifestyle application platform 230 may cause user interface 1970 of FIG. 19H to be displayed to the consumer (e.g., via user device 210). User interface 1970 may provide details about the room (e.g., a rate per night, check-in and check-out dates, etc.) and other information (e.g., maps, directions, phone numbers, etc.).
  • Although user interfaces 1900-1970 depict a variety of information, in other implementations, user interfaces 1900-1970 may depict less information, different information, differently arranged information, and/or additional information than depicted in FIGS. 19A-19H.
  • Systems and/or methods described herein may provide a lifestyle application platform that links identity, mobile, social, location, payment, and commerce services to anticipate a consumer's needs and to proactively recommend appropriate and customized products, services, and/or content to the consumer. The lifestyle application platform may enable the enterprises to deliver the right products, services, and/or content to consumers, may improve ARPU for the enterprises, and may lower costs of consumer acquisition and retention. Consumers, via the lifestyle application platform, may obtain more control over their personal information, may receive less unsolicited spam, and may be provided with simple and safe access (e.g., via a single authentication ID) to their favorite brands of products, services, and/or content.
  • The foregoing description of implementations provides illustration and description, but is not intended to be exhaustive or to limit the invention to the precise form disclosed. Modifications and variations are possible in light of the above teachings or may be acquired from practice of the invention.
  • For example, while series of blocks have been described with regard to FIGS. 17 and 18, the blocks and/or the order of the blocks may be modified in other implementations. Further, non-dependent blocks may be performed in parallel.
