FinanceWorks is an Online Financial Management application developed by Digital Insight, the financial institution division of Intuit, and is offered to consumers through their bank or credit union Website. FinanceWorks is designed to allow consumers to manage their financial accounts such as checking, savings, credit cards, loans, and investments they have at multiple financial institutions all within their current bank or credit union's online banking site.
Account Aggregation: FinanceWorks utilizes proprietary account aggregation technology to pull consumer account information from different financial institutions and presents that data within FinanceWorks to the user. Currently, FinanceWorks can aggregate from over 16,000 financial institutions  and credit card sites, on their bank or credit union’s Website.
Organization: Consumers can organize their financial information to provide simplified budgeting, expense categorization, and other services. Key benefits include the ability to see where they are spending money so they can find ways to cut back and save more; manage all their bills regardless of the method of payment; track tax deductible expenses; and the ability to set reminders and alerts for timely account updates.
Planning for the future: By allowing users to categorize expenses and see where their money is going, FinanceWorks facilitates planning for future spending and saving, including long-term financial goals.
Security: FinanceWorks is hosted within the online banking Websites of participating financial institutions and is protected by the strict security and privacy measures required of the banking industry by governmental regulations. (FinanceWorks is not downloaded onto an individual user’s computer.)
Economy: Banks and credit unions that offer FinanceWorks typically provide it free of charge to customers.
Powered by Quicken: FinanceWorks is powered by Quicken, a personal finance management tool from Intuit that has been on the market since 1983.
Benefits for financial institutions
Customer retention: Nearly 80% of FinanceWorks users say they’re more likely to stay with their bank or credit union and recommend it to others, based solely on their FinanceWorks experience.
More profitable customers: Because they tend to use more products and services from their financial institution, FinanceWorks users are up to four times more profitable than the average customer.
Low deployment cost: FinanceWorks is aggressively priced to permit small institutions to deploy with very little upfront costs and no software licensing costs for the first year. .
