The Benefits of FileThis
- Ultra secure
To establish the connection between your financial institution, you must use your financial institution’s encrypted log-in portal. All communication takes place via the same encrypted channels, minimizing risk.
- Easy organization
FileThis will store PDF statements wherever you instruct it to. In this way, you can quickly and easily organize all of your statements, retaining as much manual control as you want while still leveraging the labor-saving benefits of automation.
- Effective tax records
Financial institutions often make historical statements available through their portal, but these often only go back about three years. Unfortunately, this is not enough for your tax records, and you will need statements that go back longer than three years. FileThis makes it possible to build a long and comprehensive chain of statements that can be used to produce effective tax records.
- Convenient notifications
Users receive email notifications whenever they have a bill that needs attention, or another urgent message. FileThis makes sure that users do not get left in the dark when it comes to important actions.
- Lots of advantages in the free version of the program
Users can register six connections for free, which can be set to check different accounts once a week. For example, if you want your savings and credit card statements checked, you can set these up under separate connections. If you want each connection to have its own log-in, you can set it up this way.
Users can register up to 12 connections on the paid version, with plans starting at only $2 per month.
