Shopping site Shopsavvy announced an update to its mobile app this week that adds functionality for users who are looking for the right price on the product they want.
The update increased the number of participating retail outlets from fewer than 40,000 to about 500,000. Additionally, products can be tracked by their barcodes using the app’s built-in scanner.
“We don’t just aggregate deals on the store level but down the product SKU level to help users who check for sales and deals daily,” ShopSavvy CEO John Boyd said. “We make it possible for consumers to get the information they want on just the items they want, with all the sales in one place.”
By tracking a product, users don’t have to check emails and promotions for when better prices become available, but get a notification from the app.
“Using ShopSavvy to follow those brands or a particular SKU, the shopper can be notified when any store is having a sale, without having to check all the stores that sell those brands” Boyd said.
The revamped app also includes a new product page, where users can see prices from nearby and online sellers, read reviews, and see photos of the products. It also supports full-screen photos and shows related products.
“ShopSavvy will remain the leading app for in store price savings, but we’ve also evolved into a complete and customized service for consumers to save time and money,” Boyd said.
