(57) Abstract:
(EN): A system (200) is provided. The system (200) comprises a memory (204) to store profile data for one or more merchants (203); and a processing device (201a), operatively coupled to the memory (204), to receive an indication (217) to generate an online review for a client device (207) associated with a location (215) of the merchant (203). Responsive to receiving the indication (217), one or more weighted event factors (240) associated with the merchant (203) are determined. One or more distribution parameters (210) specified by a merchant system (203) are selected based on the weighted event factors (240) for the merchant (203). An online third party review site (270) is identified based on the distribution parameters (210). Thereupon, the online third party site (280) is caused to transmit a reviewing object (235) to the client device (207) for posting the online review of the location (215) of the merchant (203).
(FR): L'invention concerne un système (200). Le système (200) comporte une mémoire (204) servant à stocker des données de profil relatives à un ou plusieurs commerçants (203); et un dispositif (201a) de traitement, couplé fonctionnellement à la mémoire (204), servant à recevoir une indication (217) pour générer un commentaire en ligne pour un dispositif client (207) associé à un local (215) du commerçant (203). En réaction à la réception de l'indication (217), un ou plusieurs facteurs pondérés (240) d'événement associés au commerçant (203) sont déterminés. Un ou plusieurs paramètres (210) de distribution spécifiés par un système de commerçant (203) sont sélectionnés d'après les facteurs pondérés (240) d'événement relatifs au commerçant (203). Un site (270) de commentaires en ligne de tierce partie est identifié d'après les paramètres (210) de distribution. Ensuite, le site (280) en ligne de tierce partie est amené à envoyer un objet (235) à commenter au dispositif client (207) pour publier le commentaire en ligne concernant le local (215) du commerçant (203).
