iTaggit Welcomes Collectors of All Kinds to Explore New Collection Management Web site iTaggit helps people discover and unlock the value of all their collectibles with tools designed for research, organization, and community. The site has just opened up its beta testing to the public.
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - iTaggit.com, a new, free Web site that aims to change the way people collect, organize, and enjoy their belongings, today announced that it is opening its virtual doors for public beta-testing. Its diverse, growing community, which has already exceeded 2,300 members, uses iTaggit as a display case, as a secure, online storage vault, and as a set of tools to organize and unlock value in the things they own.
iTaggit provides an online environment for cataloging, managing, and sharing collections of items, while preserving user and data privacy. The site features community resources, where users can connect and interact with friends, like-minded collectors, and knowledgeable experts.
iTaggit’s features available during the public beta-testing phase include:
• Organization. iTaggit provides a secure, central place to quickly catalog items and share the information with those they trust. iTaggit stores receipts, digital photos, audio and video files, and other user-added information about possessions. Items and collections can be tagged and grouped in a number of useful ways — such as by year or country-of-origin — whatever criteria is important to the user.
•Tools to digitize and catalog valuables. iTaggit helps move collections from the closet or garage to the Web. Its multi-add function allows users to instantly and easily create a collection. Data stored in spreadsheets or database format can be imported into iTaggit without re-typing. Additionally, iTaggit can automatically generate a number of reports about a collection to help users determine the value of their things.
•Privacy and security. iTaggit users control what information is shared with the iTaggit community. Each item’s “Lockbox” keeps any private information, receipts, records, or notes out of public view. Everything on the system is protected by industry-standard secure tools, including firewalls, virus scanning, and authentication services.
•Community resources. iTaggit users can share collections with the public or with select family and friends. They can connect and interact with like-minded collectors and knowledgeable experts through forums, blogs, and user-created contact lists. Additionally, users can connect with other iTaggit community members interested in trading items from their collections.
•Research resources. iTaggit includes tools to research items through automated Web searches. Additional one-click links carry users to auction and shopping Web sites to facilitate selling, trading, and purchasing of items.
