SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/11/12 -- Billeo, Inc. announced today that its ShopSmart iPad app was named a Finalist in the Apps category in The 2012 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.

For the first time, The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Monday, June 18 in New York, and a new tech awards event on Monday, September 17 in San Francisco.
More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. Billeo's ShopSmart iPad app is nominated for best Shopping App.
Billeo, Inc. creates free apps that save people time and money while shopping and paying bills online. Billeo also provides banks, credit card companies, credit unions, airlines and loyalty providers with context-aware shopping and bill pay technologies that help them better interact with their customers online.
Billeo's latest app, ShopSmart, is a free iPad app built to make shopping from an iPad easier and more rewarding, saving the average user 10 percent on each purchase. ShopSmart includes a secure eWallet and form-fill features, which take the work out of shopping from an iPad. The app also instantly alerts users about deals from their loyalty and rewards programs, favorite merchants and daily deal services. Recently, ShopSmart was updated with a more intuitive look and feel to make shopping from the app even easier.
"We're thrilled to have our work recognized by The American Business Awards," said Murali Subbarao, CEO of Billeo, Inc. "This further validates that our consumer-centric approach to designing and developing apps is a win-win -- consumers save money while financial institutions build brand loyalty."
