System to Provide the Context Information for a New Initiated Communication

To facilitate and expedite smooth chat communication, in which one participant does not have to explain to another the context, background, or history of the message, a system is needed to automatically provide relevant information to the recipient of a chat request.

This type of solution is also needed for a support process in which a particular Problem Management Record (PMR) visits multiple support teams, with each team providing

input based on a separate analysis of the problem. Currently, each team has to go through all the problem data that is available in the PMR. This is a tedious task, often requiring support teams to view repetitive or irrelevant information entered by other reviewers.

User C - Yes, I do handle the appliances for B's team. I will send the main appliance details to you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It can be seen from the above example; the context of the communication was

manually conveyed by A to User C. Here, the context was the information User A received from User B regarding the main appliance details with User C. User A had to repeat the discussion with user B in order to give context to User C, in order to get the right answer or the information needed.

The novel contribution is a system that provides the person/team with the context in

which the communication has been initiated. The system analyzes the most recent chats from the initiator and collects information that is relevant to the subject being discussed. The system can be us...
