Cozi software provides the tools for busy families to share schedules, track shopping and to-do lists, organize household chores and stay in communication. A recent consumer survey about family management found more than 50 percent of consumers would like solutions to help create weekly shopping lists, a family calendar and a message center.

The Whirlpool brand edition of Cozi includes a full set of easy-to-use features:

  • Calendar – A centralized calendar to manage everyone’s schedules in one location and accessible by the entire family. Activities and appointments (home, school, work, etc.) are coordinated through a shared, color-coded family calendar. Cozi also syncs with Outlook – a feature to use at work to prevent double-booking and keep track of family activities.
  • Shopping and Task List – Customized shopping lists help families keep track of items to purchase in one location. Users on the go can call a toll-free number from any mobile phone to receive lists by text message or have lists read to them.
  • Messages – Using the Cozi software, messages may be sent individually or to the whole family via text message or e-mail; intended for quick reminders or updates.
  • Photo Collage Screen Saver – Cozi can automatically display all the family photos downloaded from vacations, birthdays, sports events and other family activities into photo collages.
  • The Cozi Whirlpool Edition is accessible from any computer with an Internet connection at home or work, or from any mobile phone, keeping the entire family up to speed. Families can activate their own account and download the software on multiple computers for free at www.whirlpool.com/cozi.
