At MoneyBrilliant we are passionate about helping people make better decisions about their money because we think it helps people live better lives.
So from early November we are making some exciting changes.
First, we are standardising functionality across the web, iOS and Android apps so you can do almost everything almost everywhere. No more having to use the web for things like setting budgets. You can do virtually everything on your phone!
Second, we have done a massive upgrade on the budget functionality. It is now simpler to use and more sophisticated. If you already use our budget functionality we will do our best to migrate your existing budget to our new budget functionality. If you haven’t used our budget functionality you will definitely want to have a look at this when it becomes available.
Third, the new budget functionality links to our new Safe Spending functionality that will now be even better at helping you see how much cash you have available, what money is committed to upcoming expenditure and what you can therefore safely spend without going into the red.
Fourth, we will release new functionality to help people optimise their banking structures. This functionality will look at the banking products you have and help you align them with our ideal banking structures. We want everyone to be able to bank like a professional, get access to the features they need and pay as little as possible in fees and charges.
Fifth, we’ve added another new piece of functionality called the Activity Feed. The activity feed is where we will send you insights, recommendations, tasks and information that relate to your money. It’s an easy way to stay on top of what is happening. You can also configure whether activity feed items just stay in your activity feed or are sent to you by email or push notification.
Finally, we’ve updated and redesigned the look and feel of our applications to make them more intuitive and incorporate the new functionality. We think you’ll love the new look and feel.
You’ll be pleased to know that this is just the start! We have big plans to roll out more functionality later this year and throughout 2017, including modules for saving and investing and managing debt.
Stay tuned for more information about these changes.
