Internet Based Rates Monitoring Services from
eMark Services Relaunched as RateGain
Chicago, USA, April 13, 2004 – Chicago-based Riv Consulting Inc. announces that it has taken over eMark Services-a software services company. eMark Services is a leading provider of internet based airfares and hotel-rates monitoring services to the global travel industry. Subsequent to the takeover, the price-intelligence services from eMark are being re-launched as RateGain.  Riv Consulting’s expertise in  e-business applications is going to add tangible value to the portfolio of eMark offerings. RateGain customers can now expect to get more value from these comparative pricing reports and greater flexibility of formats including reports in pre-chosen XML schemas, graphic representations and analytical summaries. Also, different report formats could be used for different levels of decision makers in the client company.

Large travel portals, airlines, hotel chains, travel inventory consolidators and market research companies use the RateGain pricing intelligence. Though, most travel portals claim to offer "best-prices-on-the-web"; few actually do any structured competition tracking. With RateGain price-intelligence reports, any travel portal can out-smart it’s competition and increase it’s book-to-look ratio given the fact that any consumer checks-out several websites before finally making a booking.
Besides cheapest airfares, a comparative AirGain report contains data relating to stop-overs, advance booking periods, duration of return trip, minimum fares amongst all the travel portals being tracked, the difference between the fares on the customer's portal and other portals etc. Similarly, a comparative HotelGain report contains star-ratings, advance booking period, length of stay, minimum rates amongst all the travel portals being tracked, the difference between the rates on the customer's portal and other portals etc. The client decides the portals that need to be tracked and other parameters that affect price. " The company uses Prince2 methodology of project management and uses sophisticated software tools to drive the entire price-data report generation cycle. Stay ahead of your competitors with RateGain reports", says Mr. Bhanu Chopra – the CEO of Riv Consulting Inc.

The reports could be submitted daily, weekly, on-demand or at a customer-specified periodicity. The customer can also access his reports through a password protected web folder on RateGain client extranet i.e. NetReports. Alerts by e-mail or SMS, as and when prices of certain travel inventory items rise or fall beyond the pre-specified threshold values, are also available.
