Fuze Announces Award of Patent for Management of Contact Information
the leading cloud-based communications platform provider for the modern
global enterprise, today announced it has been awarded a new patent
related to its advanced method of streamlining the management of contact
information on clients' devices.
On Nov. 14, 2017, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued U.S.
Patent #9,819,768 entitled "Systems and Methods of Address Book
Management." Fuze's latest patent protects the company's process for
identifying and storing correct contact information based on confidence
in the information on that contact already on a server. With this
patent, Fuze is building on its commitment to unlock relevat business
systems across an organization to deliver contextual insights to
everyone in the organization through the Fuze cloud communications
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.

validates our commitment to deliver a voice, video and messaging
platform that meets the needs of the entire organization," said Colin
