November 10, 2016 – Today, The OneRez Travel Compay (dba ProveLocal) filed a business method patent application 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, woman and minority owned and operated. Using a similar self certification and verification process, the ProveLocal travel platform enables suppliers to offer discounted specialized membership rates to customers who have self-certified that they reside within a geographical distance set by ProveLocal on the system, as well as the verification process used.
