Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 12, 2009
myInvo provides an easy, secure, and cost-effective way to manage personal inventory online from any device with a web browser. This unique subscription service fills a vastly underserved need for consumers who recognize the importance of keeping detailed records but lack a set of reliable, secure, user-friendly and cost-effective organizational tools to make it happen.
myInvo's new subscription based service allows consumers to make a secure electronic inventory of all their personal belongings and important documents. Users may upload pictures of their belongings, copies of receipts, full descriptions and other relevant information, such as serial numbers, cost, appraisal value, warranty information and insurance information.
The service does not require the purchase or installation of software. Records can be accessed, changed, and printed from any computer or device with web access. All records are password protected and accessible only to registered users.
"From online banking and bill payment services to online shopping, consumers have rapidly embraced a variety of internet-based internet tools, but have lacked a comprehensive, convenient solution to manage assets and personal inventory," said Max Coebergh, President and CEO of myInvo. "We created myInvo to answer that need, and feel that there is a huge growth opportunity present in this market segment."
Keeping comprehensive records of personal property is crucial, as is fast and secure access to important personal information. Despite its importance, keeping track of valuables, whether sentimental or monetary in nature, poses a host of issues for the average consumer.
After the unthinkable occurs - fire, natural disaster, theft, accidental loss - one of the most difficult challenges to face is figuring out what's gone, what's left, and determining value. Even the most carefully-kept records can be lost or destroyed; keeping inventory on a computer or PDA is convenient -- until that device is lost, stolen, or damaged. It makes sense to keep a backup copy of the inventory at a separate location, such as a safety deposit box, but updates require trips to that site, and the information kept under lock and key isn't quickly and easily accessible.
"According to the company's Senior Vice President of Marketing, Alphonse DePalma, myInvo fills a void in secure personal asset protection. "When you document your belongings, you can actually see how much you actually own. The ability to accurately and reliably record and track your personal assets may also give you an opportunity to take a second look at your insurance coverage," he notes. "In the event of a loss, myInvo provides a clear, detailed record of your assets that can be used much more effectively than a list drawn from memory. myInvo makes settling for insurance companies' estimated values a thing of the past."
Important documents like wills and deeds can be scanned and stored in the electronic vault for safekeeping and be viewed at any time, anywhere.
With the unique myWallet function, registered users of the myInvo service can also securely store all their credit and debit card details and in case of a loss or theft, easily access their card details and relevant contact information.
In addition to the asset protection service, myInvo lets its subscribers print unique identification labels to be put on the items of value they carry with them. Labeling of mobile phones, digital cameras or iPods through the IfFound service, greatly enhance the chance of the return of lost items. The finder of a lost item can report a lost item they found on the myInvo web site (http://www.myinvo.com) or by calling the myInvo customer service.
"It is astounding to learn how many mobile phones and other valuables are being lost each day. People today carry many more items of value on them and we believe that putting an IfFound label on each item, will give our users greater peace of mind" said Max Coebergh, President and CEO of myInvo."
