Capital One acquires mobile price tracker Paribus
过去两年间，Capital One先后收购了一系列以创新技术改善顾客体验的小型公司，如Bundle,BankOns,Adaotive Path,Level Money和Monsoon。而如今，这家公司对Fintech行业的收购热度依旧不减，比如近日他们就将在线价格追踪商Paribus收入麾下，不过收购的具体价格并未对外公布。
Paribus联合创始人兼首席执行官Eric Glyman说：“如今，我们每年处理几百万美元的购买记录，为人们节省了大量时间和金钱，而且我们的用户基础也在持续快速增长。归属于Capital One后，我们将有更多的资源来发展。”
Capital One is continuing its fintech shopping spree, buying online price tracker Paribus for an undisclosed fee.
Conceived in a Brooklyn apartment two years ago, Paribus now claims 700,000 user of its service, which alert subscribers to price reductions on recently-purchased products on the assumption that merchants will match the price in a post-sale enquiry.
The acquisition expands Capital one's portfolio of mobile products and smart startup buyouts. The US company in the past two years has acquired a raft of small firms bringing innovative technology to bear on the customer experience, including Bundle, BankOns, Adaptive Path, Level Money and Monsoon.
Paribus has raised $2 million in startup funding to date, and its twelve-person team will continue to operate independently from its New York base post-acqusition.
"Today, our infrastructure processes billions of dollars in annual purchases, our product saves people significant time and money, and our user base continues to scale rapidly," says Paribus co-founder and CEO Eric Glyman. "Within Capital One, we can supercharge these efforts."
