November 10, 2016 – Today, ProveLocal filed for a business method patent with seven claims related to its proprietary Online Travel Agency platform for local residents. The patent filed with the USPTO, application No. 15/347,827,  builds off of the existing OneRez Travel Company patent which certifies travel suppliers as small business owned. Using a similar self certification process, the ProveLocal travel platform enables suppliers to offer discounted or specialized rates to customers who have self-certified that they reside within a geographical distance set by the travel suppliers or ProveLocal on the system.
