MyWebGrocer brings grocery shopping to Google phone

first_imgMyWebGrocer of Colchester, Vermont, and Big in Japan have partnered to bring timely and relevant product data and advertising to the Google Android Platform. ShopSavvy, Big in Japan s popular price comparison application, utilizes MyWebGrocer s grocery data to help consumers find relevant products and pricing at their local grocery retailers.Using any Google Android phone, shoppers can scan a barcode found on any grocery product and are instantly shown product results from ShopSavvy. These results include prices on the web and at local stores, consumer reviews, an option to save the product to their wish list and to sign up for results when the price changes on the item. As consumers are grocery shopping, from the palm of their hand they will be able to see information that they traditionally had to get from newspaper circulars or direct mail. We re thrilled to be partnering with a mobile leader like Big in Japan, said Alec Newcomb, MyWebGrocer s Vice Presdient. Customer response to ShopSavvy in the US has been incredible, and we are excited about being able to provide relevant and timely information on the 800,000 branded products across our 95 Grocery Retailers. Grocery data has been a challenge for ShopSavvy from the very start. More than 25% of ShopSavvy users have scanned more than a million grocery items with limited success over the past year, said Alexander Muse co-founder of Big in Japan.
