2019 is Here. Let’s Get Financially Fit.
Updated: Aug 2, 2019
2018 was a big year for FloatMe. Our developer team ran two successful beta tests of our digital app which provides employees with early access to their wages. Our Financial Education team created some great tools, guides, and articles about how to stay financially healthy during the holiday season. Most importantly, we received overwhelmingly supportive and constructive feedback from our users, mentors, and business owners about our product and mission. So what do we have planned for 2019?
More Guides and Financial Wellness Tools
We already have two calculators on our website: A Car Loan Calculator and a Budget Calculator. We’re planning to expand that number significantly throughout early 2019, since many of our readers have asked for more!
We’re also excited to announce that we’ll be rolling out new budget and finance worksheets and guides each month throughout 2019. Among our most popular resources in 2018 was our Credit Management Workbook and our guide on How (and Why) to Raise Your Credit Limit. Some of our upcoming worksheets include:
· A Budget Builder Sheet
· Spending Analyzer
· Insurance Planning
· Housing Cost Workbook
· Net Worth Calculator
We hope that all these tools will help employees enter 2019 with a firm financial footing!
More “Fast Content”
Many of the employees we’ve worked with love our long-form articles and in-depth analysis. However, we only have so many hours in a day and what breaks we do have are often short ones spent waiting for the coffee machine, walking to the car, or a moment of quiet when the kids are doing homework. That’s why we’re committing to providing you more “Fast Content”: Short (<250 word) articles, quick tidbits of knowledge on platforms like twitter and Instagram, and introducing additional mediums to provide content.
More Resources and Partners
We’re big fans of not reinventing the wheel. The biggest problem we’ve heard from many of our users isn’t that they don’t want to learn or haven’t tried to learn how to become financially fit, the problem is sorting good advice and tools from the overwhelming amount of predatory sharks and finance-gurus trying to peddle their plan. We’re committing to building a growing resource library of not only our own guides & resources, but also of fantastic partners and non-profits so we can be you one-stop-shop for your financial health.
An Improved FloatMe App
Our app is live on both the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. Although we’ve temporarily paused adding users to our currently active beta, our developers are hard at work improving the FloatMe app so employees have the best experience possible! Looking to 2019, we expect to see new features, integrations, and access to our resource library & financial wellness tools directly in-app.
We hope you have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
