[prMac.com] Ottawa, Canada - Itemtopia Inc. is helping consumers get instant recall notifications on the things they own with a cross-platform app for iOS and Android. This simple application is designed to replace their shoebox full of receipts and warranty information and put this information at a users fingertips.
Itemtopia is free, because the company sees the larger opportunity in helping consumers get a handle on tracking things about their items. Its interface makes it easy to select a category for an item such as vehicles, appliances, electronics, collectibles, services and more. After adding an item, consumers are able to snap a photo of their receipt and instantly attach it to their item's profile. Rather than display a list of all receipts, the photos are attached to a specific item - making the information organized and easily accessible. Beyond receipts, consumers have the ability to attach their warranty information, service records or even instructional videos.
If you're at the hardware store and need to know which filter fits your fridge, Itemtopia knows the answer.
Most importantly however is recalls. This major safety issue has been front and center in the press recently, and no solution has tackled the problem of notification the same simple way as Itemtopia. Just add an item, and Itemtopia scans all of its sources, and presents notifications if it finds any matches. It's powerful, instant and could well save your life - or at the very least allow you to bring it in for service.
In one great example, a user added a new ATV by Arctic Cat, and the system was able to immediately pinpoint a gas line issue under recall, before the dealer told them to have it repaired.
