Boise, ID (PRWEB) August 11, 2004
Does balancing your familyÂs needs and work demands leave you feeling stressed? Do you find squeezing in time to shop for gifts, let alone yourself, almost impossible? Just in time for back to school and the holiday shopping season, thereÂs help. Introducing Personal ShopperÂ: a new, free personal shopping software and service designed to save you time and money by bringing you great deals on the items you need -and want Â and tailored gift ideas for each occasion.
Personal ShopperÂ selects products tailored to your unique interests, style and brand preferences, as well as gift ideas customized for each recipient and upcoming occasion. All this is delivered to your computer desktop in a gallery-like, easy to use shopping toolbar. The software and service is available at no cost to the user from the companyÂs website at http://www.personalshopper.com.
ÂThis new service offers everyone the luxury of having their own personal shopper with Âround the clock serviceÂ,Â says Julie Edelman, The Smart ÂN Savvy Mom and noted lifestyle expert. ÂItÂs like having someone who knows you well go out and scour your favorite stores to bring back a selection of Âjust what I wantedÂ items for yourself, your home, and your family and takes the work out of finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list.Â
Millions of Products
Personal Shopper selects from millions of products from thousands of trusted brands such as: Gucci, KitchenAid, Sony, Fisher Price, Cuisinart, Dell, DKNY, and more. The service eliminates the need to run from store to store or search multiple web sites. Users can now shop when it is most convenient for them Â even when they are not online Â and easily initiate their purchase directly from their desktop. If they are not yet ready to buy, they can save the item to My Gift Ideas, noting the specific recipient and occasion and then return later to select the best gift from the items they saved.
Personal Shopper, Inc. developed its patented technology over the course of more than four years with extensive input from focus groups and a consumer advisory panel. ÂWe are dedicated to providing everyone with an unparalleled personal shopping experience that will help simplify the lives of busy, time-starved people,Â says Laura Silsby, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Personal Shopper, Inc.
In just a few minutes, new users can quickly customize their Personal Shopper, by sharing some of their interests, brand and style preferences, and a calendar of upcoming gift occasions. They can later use the My Gift Planner, if desired, to share recipientsÂ unique interests or specify their gift budget for a specific occasion. Just like a personal assistant, Personal Shopper keeps track of all upcoming gift occasions and sends great gift ideas in plenty of time to select and purchase the right gift. With ongoing use, Personal Shopper intuitively refines and tailors the product selection to more closely align with the userÂs expressed, demonstrated and inferred interests and preferences.
According to Edelman, the real benefit of Personal Shopper is that you decide how to put it to work for you. CanÂt resist another pair of fabulous shoes? Maybe youÂre into home dÃ©cor and gardening. Or perhaps youÂre wrestling with finding the perfect gift for an upcoming occasion. ÂNo need to stress over it: let Personal Shopper take the ÂsearchÂ out of finding the right gift, great deals, as well as the latest products from your favorite brands, fashion passions and lifestyle interests.Â
