How to Get Totally Organized – Once and For All
Free Online Tool Finally Organizes All Your Bills and Paperwork
Did you know that Americans paid more than $22 billion in late fees and penalty fees last year? This is especially bad news, considering paying bills on time is a primary factor in credit scoring. Bills arrive on different days and are due at different times of the month, and most of us just get busy and forget a due date, which can hurt in more ways than one.
So what can you do?
If you’re like most people, you go through your bills one at a time. The process can take hours every month, not to mention the valuable space it takes up in your home.
For many people, the process is not that different from what our parents did, apart from writing so many checks. So, where are the incredible new efficiencies promised by technology?
Some people have started taking advantage of online banking and bill payment services now offered by their banks, and this is definitely an improvement. But this piece-meal approach can be problematic. Consumers still have to interact separately with each company, which means unique usernames and passwords to remember for each one. And, there is still a mass of paper from companies that needs to be filed — like investment statements, health insurance summaries and policy information.
One password — one secure place
A free service called Manilla.com tackles this problem head-on. It provides consumers with a single login and secure online location to manage and share their bills and other important accounts. It connects directly to all of the businesses you work with — your telephone company, electric company, cable or satellite provider, credit card, bank account, and even your healthcare accounts, entertainment accounts, daily deals, travel and rewards programs, 401(k)s, and subscriptions.
No more hopping around different websites, worrying where to find important documents or missing payments, and incurring late charges or finance penalties. It can work wonders for your credit score.
Data safety is also one of the top priorities of Manilla.com. Its system delivers a level of safety and security that beats that of paper documents, hands down. Records are encrypted, redundant, and remotely stored — always safe from hackers or a natural disaster. And you never have to worry about someone stealing important documents in your mailbox. That’s important, because 90 percent of information and identity theft is related to physical mail.
Convenient, easy bill sharing
Manilla just launched a new feature called Bill Share, which allows customers to securely collaborate with their family and friends to manage their bills or accounts. Now you can invite a spouse, child, roommate, parent, accountant and anyone else to manage expenses together with shared account summaries and details. Bill Share also provides a conversation platform to comment on or discuss a bill or account.
Best of all, it's completely free
Manilla.com is subsidized by the utilities, banks, and other companies that benefit from the savings it provides them, so it’s completely free to consumers. Setting up your account takes just minutes and you’ll start seeing the benefits immediately.
