Manilla Surpasses 1 Million Consumer Accounts

Customers Can Add More Than 2,000 National and Regional Businesses to Their Manilla Accounts, Allowing Them to Manage Their Bills, Store and Retrieve Digital Documents, and Manage Their Daily Lives

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 9, 2012) - Manilla, the award-winning, free and secure service that allows consumers to manage their bills and other personal accounts on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, announced today that Manilla customers have added more than one million accounts to Manilla. This milestone establishes Manilla, which emerged from beta in February, as the nation's leading digital mailbox service.

"Surpassing one million accounts so quickly demonstrates that consumers enjoy having a single place to access bills, data and documents from the businesses that they interact with most often. Our consumers have told us that they want Manilla to manage a wide breadth of businesses and this is why today, Manilla provides consumers the ability to add more than 2,000 businesses, ranging from banks to travel rewards programs," said Jim Schinella, chief operating officer of Manilla. "This milestone validates a change in the way consumers perceive secure online account management. Our users save time, avoid late fees, become more organized and receive more complete documents by managing their accounts with Manilla."

Manilla is a personal bill and account management service that automatically aggregates customers' balances, bills, statements and other documents from all of their household service providers using a single password. Manilla organizes and simplifies its customers' lives by reminding them to pay their bills, renew their subscriptions, and use their expiring coupons and airline miles. Manilla also replaces its customers' filing cabinets by offering lifetime storage of all of their account documents for free.

Manilla's business partners also benefit from their customers receiving their bills and statements through Manilla. U.S. businesses spend 70 cents to $1 to print, collate, and mail every bill and statement. The cumulative annual cost for banks, utilities and other service providers to send paper mail to their U.S. customers is more than $30 billion, not to mention the unmeasured environmental impact.

In addition to making online account access easy and saving its consumers time, Manilla has solved the issues that have previously kept customers from agreeing to go paperless by providing a secure environment with single sign-on and consistent user navigation, reminders to pay bills and use daily deal coupons and travel rewards, and free lifetime storage of all account-related mail. Today, Manilla supports more than 2,000 service providers, including almost every national and regional financial institution and biller.
