With the beginning of each month it’s time for you to settle debts, pay the monthly bills, watch your expenses, monitor your accounts and the list goes on and on. But the changing priorities, bill dates and varying debts cannot just be time consuming and confusing to understand but may also be a reason you ended up paying late fee a couple of times each month.
Manilla can make financial life much easier with its flawless integration with a rich variety of service providers which including household utilities providers, banking and finance related services, travel and reward programs, and also other subscription based services that you could be using on daily basis. Some of the most useful services that can be managed from Manilla’s interface include popular cell phone operators, T.V operators, Internet subscriptions, gas and electric, insurance services, banking and credit card and even subscription to digital content like magazines and media.
Pretty easy to get started with, you just choose the service you use and enter your credentials to access the information in a consolidated format. During our test we ran through each and every section of the app, added a credit card, Netflix account of a team mate, our Verizon billing account, the PayPal account which has its own monthly subscriptions, an JetBlue reward program and even a Groupon account we have been using to save big on new deals and purchases.
Not the first question that came to our mind was “whether Manilla is secure and trustworthy to share sensitive details like bank logins and other private details?”. But after a little research and speaking to the tech department, comes the sign of relief because Manilla manages and transmits your private information very securely without saving it on the device and is verified by TRUSTe.
After you have configured all your accounts, the accounts screen displays details like credit card outstanding, minimum dues on credit card, your cell phone bill amount, travel rewards and any other information associated with the accounts in use. While the reminder panel takes an even more task oriented approach where it has clear deadlines mentioned for your bill payment of each service and an additional red highlight makes the dues look like a high priority tasks. The reminders are integrated with device and help you get an overview of the reminders or rather the pending tasks.
Manilla has documents folder which is an interestingly useful feature to have in a bill payments and account management app like this. You can save your e-bills in this folder to keep a record of all your previous spends.
