CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2012) - ZigMail, a privately-held provider of software applications that simplify your transactional life, today unveiled ZigMail, a web solution to combat personal email overload.

Studies confirm the majority of us (74 percent) prefer email for commercial communication and most (63 percent) check our email accounts at least daily1, yet consumers lose time and money keeping up with the avalanche of email -- such as daily deals, receipts, account updates and other communication that is transactional in nature.

With ZigMail, you can "zig" right to the important messages you want to act on immediately, like a limited time offer, or those you want to file away, like a receipt or a shipping notification. ZigMail captures and sorts these messages and delivers them to your computer, smartphone or tablet device as a summarized daily ZigDigest.
