Hearst's Manilla Introduces Document Upload Feature

Manilla Users Can Now Upload Important Documents to Manilla Web Service for Free

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2014) - Manilla, the leading, free and secure digital mailbox service that allows consumers to manage their bills and other personal accounts on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, today announced the introduction of Document Upload, a new feature that allows Manilla users to upload important documents to the Manilla service on the Web.

"Manilla's organizational features were built to help busy people save time and money," said Jim Schinella, CEO of Manilla. "The new Document Upload tool is a logical feature for the Manilla service, which is already storing a wide variety of bills and financial and brokerage statements. Our users have been asking to manage more of their critical information on Manilla, which is becoming the essential go-to service for staying on top of bills, travel programs, health records and all services that require people to track information online. We are excited to provide this utility to our users because we know they will use it."

Manilla users can already use the free and secure Manilla service to:

  • Manage everything in one place; customers can choose from more than 4,000 companies available on the service
  • Set automatic bill reminders to avoid paying late fees
  • Use one password to automatically log into accounts, rather than having to remember multiple usernames and passwords
  • Store bills and statements for free to reduce paper clutter
  • Use Bill Share to securely collaborate on bill and account management with parents, roommates, accountants and spouses
  • New Document Upload feature allows users to upload .jpg, .png, .gif, .pdf and .txt files through the Web interface; mobile photo upload coming soon

Businesses value the opportunities and benefits that come with partnering with Manilla. Data and recent user surveys have consistently shown that Manilla users have higher advertising click-through rates and they more frequently visit businesses they have added to their Manilla account. These customers also buy more and engage more often with the brand.

The Manilla service provides partner companies with new opportunities for customer engagement, increased up-sell opportunities, and increased online account registrations in a highly targeted, paperless environment that is protected from competitive advertising.
