Shopitize, www.shopitize.com, is a UK start-up determined to better connect consumers with the brands they love the most.
Shopitize members use a smartphone app to simply snap photos of paper shopping receipts, which are then automatically uploaded to their personal space on Shopitize’s secure servers.
Currently, the Shopitize site offers free and unlimited digital receipt storage on the web where UK shoppers can monitor their daily spending, offering them valuable insight into their personal shopping habits.
But the best is yet to come: the new Shopitize shopping experience will continue to evolve, putting consumers in charge of the data collected on them, for the very first time.
This means that as more people join the Shopitize revolution, more brands will provide them with unbeatable personal rewards and offers, turning the Shopitize smartphone app into the ultimate 21st Century shopping assistant.
“When we told people about the innovation, they asked: Wow! Can this really be done? We were delighted to say yes!’ said Dr Alexey Andriyanenko, a Shopitize director and co-founder.
“What’s more, we were thrilled to be able to develop this in the UK which has one of, if not the most dynamic retail markets in the world.
“Our web platform and apps will enable consumers to shop smarter, stretching and managing their shopping budgets like never before.
“Shopitize offers a unique and seamless integration between the iOS app and web platform providing users access to all their key shopping history, even while on the go. The app makes it easy to upload receipts, to view spending history and to manage shopping using smart, timely shopping lists.
“For laptop/PC/MAC users, the website provides a rich data experience offering detailed personal insights into an individual's own shopping behaviour.
“Over time, the Shopitize system will learn to interact individually with each member, making it even easier for shoppers to manage their purchases. More importantly, as the number of shoppers increases, so too will the type of rewards they will receive.”
Shopitize was established in 2010 by a highly-experienced, talented team of entrepreneurs and raised £1m from global investors in August 2011.
