Technologies for static transfer switch load transfer for catcher uninterruptible power supply systems
Patent No. 11,183,871
Technologies for transferring a load by a static transfer switch (STS) to a catcher uninterruptible power supply (UPS) are disclosed. In an illustrative embodiment, each STS in a catcher UPS system monitors an available power of the catcher UPS. The STS determines, in response to a power failure event of an associated UPS, whether a real-time power supplied to a load connected to the STS exceeds the available power of the catcher UPS and whether the STS has priority over each other STS in the system. The STS transfers the load from the associated UPS to the catcher UPS in response to determining that the real-time power supplied to the load does not exceed the available power of the catcher UPS and that the STS has priority over each other STS in the system.

Direct data share
Patent No. 11,182,797
Methods, systems, and apparatuses are described herein for the direct sharing and use of transaction data separately from transaction authorization processes. Transaction metadata associated with a transaction may be received and validated. Authorization information corresponding to the transaction may be received. The degree to which the transaction metadata is tested may be based on a predicted time of receipt of the authorization information. The transaction metadata and authorization information may be correlated. A computing device may determine whether to authorize the financial transaction based on the authorization information and the correlated transaction metadata. All or portions of the transaction metadata may be provided to one or more users after the transaction has been authorized or denied.

Initiating cardswap based on analytic model indicating third party card reissuance
Patent No. 11,188,927
Various embodiments are directed to initiating or triggering a cardswap action for a customer based on a determination that one or more third-party cards associated with the customer have likely been reissued. The determination may be based on the analysis performed by an analytics model on customer transaction data corresponding to the customer. The analytics model may be trained using various patterns, trends, or characteristics observed in the customer transaction data around a timeframe of an actual reissue event. When a likely reissue event has been determined, one or more customer cards may be presented to the customer for swapping out the reissued third-party cards with a customer card.
