Portaltech, a UK eCommerce systems integrator and consultancy, has announced that it has enhanced its iPhone app with the official release of StripeyLines V1.0. StripeyLines is a shopping companion for bargain and info hungry shoppers who want to ensure they are getting the best deal, and allows shoppers to instantly scan the barcode of goods in-store to compare pricing, or to check product and customer reviews. Shoppers can also use the app to create wishlists of products they want to buy at a later date, or share their new finds on Facebook and Twitter with friends and family.
Shoppers can even use StripeyLines to instantly link a scanned CD to iTunes and listen to that CD whilst in store. The customer then has the option to choose to buy in store, download straight to their iPhone from iTunes, or go to Amazon or Google to check pricing and customer ratings.
With StripeyLines 1.0, shoppers can synchronise everything scanned on their app, with http://stripeylines.com, allowing them to continue their research or buying frenzy at home, or over a cup of coffee in a local cafe.
Portaltech is now trying to get major UK retailers to come onboard and provide price and product data for StripeyLines. The company is keen to ensure that users of the application have all the latest retailer data, barcodes and pricing to inform their decision making process, turning browsers into purchasers.
