Project Slice Introduces A Better Way To Manage Your Online Shopping
PALO ALTO, CA — (May 26, 2011) – So your email inbox has officially become a black hole of receipts, tracking notices and favorite purchases. Keep calm and carry on – we’re here to help. Today, Project Slice announced the availability of the first of its shopping tools, a free app called “All My Purchases” within the latest version of Yahoo! Mail, helping users stay organized and save time.
In today’s digital world, nearly every purchase we make kicks off a series of emails containing valuable information, from shipping notifications and tracking numbers to return policies and customer service information. The more sites we buy from, the more of a pain it becomes to track down this information when we need it. Offline retailers are getting in on the act too, with more and more retailers offering consumers electronic copies of their receipts.
That’s where “All My Purchases” comes in.
“All My Purchases” works intuitively within Yahoo! Mail to keep your shopping information organized and accessible. Once you sign up, the app automatically pulls information from the electronic receipts in your email and organizes it in one place for quick, easy reference – all while keeping your personal information private and secure.
“Somewhere in your email, there’s a record of everything you’ve ever bought online, but all that valuable information that’s supposed to make your life easier is worthless if you can’t put your finger on it when you need it most,” said Scott Brady, CEO and co-founder of Project Slice. “With ‘All My Purchases,’ we’re taking the headache out of online shopping by organizing post-purchase information from your email receipts, so that you don’t have to. It’s free, easy to use and virtually effortless.”
“All My Purchases” within Yahoo! Mail makes your shopping life easier by solving some common gripes:
- Ever get lost in your inbox? “All My Purchases” consolidates your shopping history in one place so you don’t have to log into multiple websites, dig through receipts or manually file emails. From large retailers such as Amazon and eBay to daily deals sites such as Groupon and LivingSocial, we’ve got you covered.
- Why is that shipment taking forever? We automatically track in-progress shipments and chart shipping from multiple retailers on a single map.
- Item too big? Too small? Just plain ugly? We provide quick access to return and customer service information that isn’t always so easy to find.
- Want to see what you bought? Unlike your credit card statements, we show you exactly what you bought down to the individual item from the most popular merchants, not just where you bought it.
“The new ‘All My Purchases’ application in Yahoo! Mail enables our nearly 90 million U.S. users to better manage their online shopping, allowing them to track, organize, and view online purchases in one place,” said Dave McDowell, Senior Director of Product Management, Yahoo! Mail. “‘All My Purchases’ enhances the Yahoo! Mail experience by consolidating and giving people easy access to their online shopping history directly within their inboxes.”
Embedded within the latest version of Yahoo! Mail, “All My Purchases” is available to Yahoo! Mail users under “Applications.” To upgrade an existing Yahoo! Mail account or create a new Yahoo! Mail account, go to overview.mail.yahoo.com and click on the “Upgrade Now” button. To find out more about Project Slice, please visit www.projectslice.com.
