Ara is a chatbot to help you track your spending. Ara makes it simple to enter transactions as they happen. For example, you can input a transaction by texting Ara, ‘I spent 100 on dinner at Delaneys”. To see a summary of your transactions simply text Ara, “What did I spend this month?”. Simple. Easy. Quick. There are financial bots emerging that use financial aggregators to automatically retrieve data from your bank account. The problem is that these aggregators store your banking credentials on their servers. We didn't feel comfortable doing this and built Ara to offer an alternative way to track your spending.
