I need some help with an existing Google Analytics implementation. My client uses a reservations booking engine called IQRez by IQWare (http://www.iqrez.com/). The issue is when the visitor goes to my client's website it tracks perfectly on G.A. When the visitor clicks on "Check Availability" for a hotel room, they jump over to the booking engine on IQRez's platform. There is G.A. on that portal as well but the tracking gets lost when the visitor selects a hotel room make the booking and then end back up on my client's website. Something is going wrong with the hand-off and I need help.
Can anyone help?
