Heaps! Close Down By Kiwibank

I got an email today from Kiwibank about closing of heaps!. I’ve been using this software since I came here in NZ. This was provided by Kiwibank for free. I actually thought that its features are awesome! It helped me organise my finances by linking my bank transactions automatically into categories e.g. Food, Rent, Transportation etc. Though after a few months of usage, I noticed that some transactions were not synced. I asked for help from their support team, but didn’t get a resolution from them so I went back to using a manual finance tracker in my Android phone.

Here is the email I got from Kiwibank. They just confirmed that they had stability and functionality issues with the software, thus will close it.

 

Hi there

heaps! is closing 1 July 2016

A few years ago we brought you heaps!, an online tool to manage your money and reach your financial goals faster.

heaps! started well, but in the last few years it’s had issues with stability and functionality and it hasn’t delivered the experience we want you to have.

We’ve decided to close heaps! on 1 July and put our efforts into bringing you a better tool. You can get answers to any questions about the closure at heaps.co.nz. The website will stay live until 30 September 2016.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closure of heaps!

 

Kind regards

Coincidentally, ANZ has also announced its discontinuation of MoneyManager on July 2016.
