"BillNag - pay your bills on time"
BillNag is a bill paying reminder program that can be used completely separately to using something like Microsoft Money, Quicken, a spreadsheet or a paper-based financial system.
Whilst the reminder systems inside a money program can be useful, they are not always as feature-packed as one might like. BillNag aims to fix that. It can remind about upcoming bills and shows the bills all in the same place so they are easier to scan through the list to see all the bills that are coming up over the next few days, weeks and months.
Any bills that have been missed previously can also be reminded to the user. This is helpful for people who either still receive paper bills in the mail or receive email notifications. Sometimes mail goes unopened or opened and forgotten, and email can easily be routed into a junk mail folder by mistake. This reminder service can prompt that a bill should have arrived which helps the user to watch out for it and chase it up if it's not been received to ensure if doesn't go unpaid where charges could be incurred.
The software can also help to calculate the total amount of money needed to cover upcoming bills over the next 7, 14 or 30 days.
