Press release from: asknet AG

Karlsruhe, March 18, 2010 – asknet AG, recently ranked as one of Germany’s fastest-growing technology companies in Deloitte’s “Technology Fast 50” report, announced Rebate Delivery as its partner for worldwide purchase incentives/mail-in rebates.
Launched in early 2009 by a team of veterans from the software and eCommerce/ESD (Electronic Software Distribution) industry, Rebate Delivery is the leader in global mail-in rebate solutions for eCommerce. The company’s combination of traditional mail-in rebates with online sales of digital products has resulted in a patent-pending solution.
Applying the concept of a traditional mail-in rebate program to the international online marketplace requires a global rebate solution. Rebate Delivery has created a new patent-pending technology and service by combining global mail-in locations with global payment solutions, as well as robust rebate creation, fulfillment, and tracking solutions. Unlike the traditional mail-in rebate model, rebate forms are simple, no extra documentation is required, and consumers who mail in rebate forms are paid immediately.
“Adding the best-in-class on-line rebate provider Rebate Delivery to our portfolio of eMarketing services empowers our customers with even more innovative online marketing and proven sales enablement tools. Now software vendors partnering with asknet can use rebates as a discounting solution that yields the same kind of positive sales results retailers have been experiencing for years,” says Mark R. Begin, Vice President of Global Account Management at asknet Inc. “When rebates are done right, everyone wins: eCommerce companies’ revenues increase because gross sales are higher; vendors profit from low redemption rates; and consumers ultimately pay less for software while being introduced to more products via alternative offers.”
Jason Foodman, CEO of Rebate Delivery, explains, “Rebates are an excellent discounting and incentive method that work just as well online as in retail -- or better. The solution also takes advantage of the online nature of transactions to provide consumers alternative offers in lieu of claiming a rebate. Worldwide address verification is provided along with archiving of electronic copies of all collateral documents for support and reporting purposes.”
