Shoeboxed.com, an online service for Receipt organization has re-launched with improved, intuitive design and a basket of new features. Apart from improvements in its receipt tracking function the service has also ventured into the Social shopping segment.
The social shopping feature keeps a track on buying habits of users and also allows them to compare their purchased items with that of friends. Essentially, that’s what Social shopping is all about. Leveraging the collective wisdom of crowds to make shopping decisions.
The core functionality of Shoeboxed is that it enables users to organize their e-mail and paper receipts, which displays their average expenditures in a professional manner. Although, it doesn’t match a thorough accounting package, the functionality of Shoeboxed does fit the basic requirements for a non-accounting geek. Its functions have become more efficient for e.g. users can now add photos and even share their items with the entire shopping community (flaunting what you’ve with others in the community ) Amongst other additions, users can share their experience of a particular product with others and recommend it to others.
The home-page now displays popular items being bought by other users. Users can simply click on listed items to make the purchases. To make receipt scanning easy for the site users, Shoeboxed is also offering a paper scanner at a special price of less than $100.
Headed by Taylor Mingos, Shoeboxed has come a long way since its launch, last year. Post its site-launch, Shoeboxed has moved to Berlin, before hopping back to North Carolina.
