RainKing’s new Unified Search method is a single search form, combining all available search criteria pertaining to companies, people and inside scoops onto a single menu.  This makes it both easier and more convenient for you to generate any answer from RainKing without having to execute multiple independent queries.

After performing a search, you can easily toggle between four content tabs (Companies, People, Scoops, Map) to get answers to multiple questions from a single search.  The criteria from a single search affects all content tabs.
