Manilla Launches Bill Share to Make Managing Family Finances Easier

Sometimes the only thing more important than having a safe place for “your stuff” is a having a way – when you want to – to safely and easily share your stuff.

To that end, Manilla is announcing Bill Share, the latest addition to their free, cloud-based bill-management service.

“Whether you’re co-managing finances with your spouse, overseeing a college student’s accounts, helping elderly parents with their money or sharing information with your account, money management often involves more than one person, and that can become complicated,” said Manilla CEO Jim Schinella. Bill Share provides the sort of “shared finances” functionality that a number of personal finance management apps have begun to feature (such as Yodlee’s Best of Show winning app, Tandem).

How so? Manilla users can take advantage of Bill Share simply by granting selected Manilla users access to their account. Users can then jointly manage finances, share information with financial professionals, and leave comments for others.
The Manilla app with Bill Share is available for free from the iOS, Android, and Amazon Kindle Fire app stores. The app is not yet available online at Manilla.com.
Founded in 2011 and headquartered in New York, Manila provides safe and secure cloud-based access to bills and personal finances. The company demoed its AOL Bill Manager technology at FinovateFall 2013. See Manilla’s presentation here.
