Manilla Introduces Email Integration Feature for Customers to Automatically Add Online Accounts and Reduce Late Fees

New Tool Further Demonstrates Manilla's Mission to Simplify and Organize Consumers' Daily Lives by Reducing the Hassle of Having to Remember Dozens of Online Accounts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2013) - Manilla (, the leading, free and secure service that allows consumers to manage their bills and other personal accounts on desktop, tablet and mobile devices today announced the launch of its email integration feature. The new, free element of the service makes it faster and more convenient than ever for consumers to add their bills and accounts and reduce paying late fees. The feature can be accessed on Manilla's "Add Account" page.

The email integration feature helps Manilla customers avoid the pain of remembering the dozens of companies that they need to manage by letting Manilla do the work for them. With the customer's permission, the email integration feature scans the customer's Gmail, Yahoo! or AOL email inbox to intelligently identify service providers that the customer has a relationship with and then automatically suggests companies that the customer may want to link on Manilla, such as AT&T Wireless, DIRECTV and Citibank.

Once Manilla has seamlessly and securely retrieved and populated the customer's likely account providers, the customer can then link each of them to Manilla. The new email integration feature saves the time that would otherwise be spent trying to remember and then manually search for accounts. All information gathered with the email integration feature is used solely by Manilla for the purpose of adding applicable accounts and is not shared with any additional parties.

"At Manilla, we've learned that one of the biggest pain points for our customers is not just having to remember all of the usernames and passwords associated with managing their bills and accounts, but also remembering the accounts themselves and what is owed," said Jim Schinella, CEO of Manilla. "A large portion of our customers are managing 20 or more accounts. With the new email integration feature, customers will no longer have to deal with the hassle of figuring out where they have accounts and what they owe because Manilla will do it for them."

In addition to helping customers remember which companies they use online, the search email feature will also help customers learn about the other household and personal accounts they may not have even known were available on Manilla. These types of accounts include entertainment accounts, daily deals, restaurants, travel rewards, retail credit cards, and even magazine subscriptions in addition to smaller, lesser-known bank accounts, utilities and credit cards.

"We are always looking for ways to help our users get the most out of Manilla," said Aaron Zitzer, Manilla's vice president of product. "Our new email search feature makes it easier than ever for new users to get organized with Manilla. Existing users benefit too by discovering accounts that they didn't remember they had or didn't know they could manage on Manilla."

Manilla's platform provides convenient, secure online access to all household accounts and services for more than 3,500 businesses. The free service helps consumers manage all of their household accounts, including financial accounts, utilities, subscriptions, daily deals and travel rewards programs, all through or via the highly rated Manilla Android or iOS mobile apps.
