Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
Sightful Software Inc. announced that http://www.FinanSavvy.com, a web based personal and family financial planning application, is available to the public for a limited time while it conducts Beta testing. FinanSavvy.com is a Personal Financial Planning application made to be used by people without financial planning expertise. It includes online budgets with templates that drive forecasts of available money over the long term. Plans include lifelong spending, saving, investing, salary growth, major purchase and retirement goals and expectations, treating this all like the single topic that it really is.
“What we are offering right now includes two of the key components that make up the complete solution that we ultimately envision delivering,” said Greg Rice, President of Sightful Software. “Feedback during the private Alpha test showed us that the product is valuable and can greatly improve people’s financial acumen to their benefit right now, so we decided to put it out to the public. We're not going to charge for access while we run our beta test to collect feedback and we haven’t set a specific time yet for when that will end. Eventually we will charge a modest fee for use of the product so that we can retain our independence from advertisers in the financial products industry and stay completely focused on serving our customers' interests.”
Registering for FinanSavvy is fast and easy requiring only an e-mail address and user selected password. Current capabilities of the system include the following:
Create copy and save online budgets. Enter spending as weekly, monthly or yearly and the system shows you the weekly, monthly and annual run rates by line item and in total.
