Announcing Lumi Labs Holiday Helper

Just in time for the holiday season!  Today, we are excited to release Lumi Labs’ first offering: Lumi Labs Holiday Helper.

If you send holiday cards or packages, you know that it’s hard to keep mailing addresses accurate and up-to-date year after year.  For many, the effort required to even put a mailing list together is a reason not to send a holiday card.

Lumi Labs Holiday Helper makes getting updated mailing addresses easy and organized.

If you sent a holiday card last year, you upload your list and Holiday Helper will email your contacts for updated information.  We will also remove duplicates, organize your list, and prepare a simple format for you to use this year.

If you haven’t sent a card in the past, you can upload a list of names and emails and we will email people and get their mailing address, as well as their updated emails, phone numbers, and birthdays.

With just a few minutes of your time, Lumi Labs Holiday Helper can take an existing list of contacts or a new list of emails and help you get the latest contact information.

This is Lumi Labs’ first experiment, but it won’t be the last.  It’s a glimpse into some bigger ideas and products we’re working on (more on that soon!).  In the meantime, we hope that this offering can help people share some holiday cheer with their family and friends.

Cheers,

Marissa, Enrique, and the Lumi Labs team

About Lumi Labs

At Lumi Labs, we see a tremendous opportunity to apply artificial intelligence to everyday, mundane problems: keeping contact information up-to-date, scheduling, making plans, forming groups for communication and sharing. All of these tasks are important, but they are tedious, repetitive, and error-prone when done manually — the perfect types of tasks for which to use AI.

We are working on a series of products and experiments that focus on how to make these everyday tasks smarter and more efficient. Our first experiment is Lumi Labs Holiday Helper. Just in time for the holidays, our Holiday Helper takes a list of contacts or even your holiday card mailing list from last year and updates it. It contacts people to ask for updated information, removes duplicates, organizes the list, and produces easy-to-use file formats — a .csv to upload to a holiday card mailing service or a .pdf that prints on popular off-the-shelf 1” x 2 ⅝” labels. And, it does all this while taking as little as 5 minutes of your time.

At Lumi Labs we want technology to get better at helping people spend less time on their devices. We’re building products that get the job done and get out of the way, so people can go and spend their time in ways they find more valuable. And we’re just at the beginning, which makes now a great time to join us. So if you’re interested in trying our products, following our news, or even working with us, we’d love to hear from you.

Welcome to Lumi Labs!
