MADISON, Wis., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CountAbout is a personal finance website that automates transaction downloading from more than 18,000 financial institutions and allows downloads of investment balances, such as from a 401k. The financial platform now allows customers to create custom tags. The tags allow the customer to specify who and where transactions apply. For instance, a customer can track personal and business transactions just by creating specific tags. This allows customers greater flexibility and the ability to more readily find specific transactions.
This is particularly important for customers who utilize accounts for multiple purposes such as those running a business or who might have investment properties. A customer can tag transactions specific to individual properties. Repair costs, utilities or purchases transactions can be applied and tracked to each property with simple tagging. This can be relevant for business accounting purposes or for tax records. Tags can also be named, renamed and deleted as needed. For personal spending, tags can be created to track grocery expense, clothing purchases, restaurant spending, utilities and more.
"CountAbout is the Quicken and Mint alternative, and now we are offering even greater flexibility for creating custom tags to track transactions," says Joseph Carpenter, co-founder of CountAbout. "Tags make transaction tracking simple. Now users have greater control how they utilize this financial platform."
CountAbout is fully customizable. In addition to tags, the platform offers standard categories for income and expenses and also allows customers to add a category or delete built-in categories that aren't needed. To help users looking for an alternative to Quicken and Mint, CountAbout allows seamless imports from their Quicken or Mint accounts, categories and transactions. Users can easily pick up with CountAbout where they left off with these other services.
Other online personal finance websites exist today but nothing that compares to the features offered through CountAbout. Other systems cannot import Quicken and Mint data, or offer complete privacy with no advertising. Few offer running register balances. CountAbout offers all these features and more. Keeping track of financial data no longer requires being tied to a desktop. With CountAbout, users can keep track of their finances and manage their money from anywhere with an internet connection. CountAbout's iOS and Android app lets users track information from home, work or on the go. No matter where the data is entered, it's synced automatically.
CountAbout is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of its customers' personal information, and utilizes the widely respected third-party service Intuit to connect subscribers with their financial institutions. CountAbout is subscription-based in order to ensure that financial and personal information can be kept private. CountAbout's premium subscription is $29.99 for the year.
