Alas US-only at the moment, but worth a blog post all the same. Geezeo is an application that makes it easy for anyone check their balances and available credit from their mobile phone. Once you’ve registered for the free service, you just text ‘geezeo update’ to 41411 – and a few seconds later you’ll get a text with updated balances of the accounts you’ve registered.
The service works with almost 6000 financial institutions, and is part of a much larger financial manager product that’s soon to be released. The biggest concern with something like this is security – and having your sensitive financial information floating around the ether. Geezeo have written a useful explanation of how the service works, and how they make sure your personal information is not misused or exposed.
Here in the UK finance company Egg have something sort of similar – ableit web-only – called Egg Money Manager. This too allows you to aggregate your credit card, bank account, loan account, etc information in one place. Maybe Geezeo should talk to Egg and sort out something similar for the UK?
