  2. RDP installs the IRM.Net Analytics & Campaign Management module on your IRM.Net server, which includes special programming to interface directly with your Google Analytics account.
  3. The guest can use a variety of web browsers and start directly with your marketing website or with any other website, such as Google, Yahoo, your chamber of commerce, etc.
  4. When the guest selects the option for “reservations”, the IRM.Net retrieves rates and availability.  Google Analytics tracks all pages visited, how long the guest spent on the page, and other information.
  5. If the guest completes the reservation process, IRM.Net stores the reservation immediately in the RDP database on your data server.  IRM.Net also passes the total revenue information for that reservation to Google Analytics to provide accurate Google reports.
  6. The RDP Source of Business report shows all reservations, sorted by source code.
