That’s precisely the thinking behind OnTrees – a financial management tool that gives you sight of all your bank and credit card accounts with a single log-in so you can check your balances, monitor your spending and set up budgets and alerts to help you manage your money more effectively.
Here at MoneySuperMarket we were so impressed by the functionality and potential of OnTrees – which is available FREE online and from Apple’s App Store, with an Android version in the pipeline – that we’ve bought the company.
By providing a breakdown of your income and expenditure and grouping transactions into categories (such as mortgage or rent, restaurants and travel), OnTrees shows you where you’re spending most, and where you might be able to make savings.
The tool is completely secure to use. It’s a ‘read only’ service, which means it cannot be used to move money into or out of any account, not even by you.
OnTrees uses bank-grade security at all times, across all platforms, to ensure your data is safe. You enter your account details via a secure socket layer which creates a coded connection between you and the OnTrees servers, so that your data is always encrypted.
You can read more about the app on the OnTrees website. It has been consistently highly rated in the UK App Store and ranked #1 for Finance several times last year. It was also voted Financial Website of the Year in the Good Web Guide Awards 2013.
