Kia ora, we’re PocketSmith

Hello! We craft online money management software loved by people all over the world. We're a team of 19, and like many of you, we're currently in lockdown too. We're doing our best to adjust to what is the new normal - at least for the time being.

The PocketSmith team

We're still in business and at work thanks to the support of our customers, but we feel for the many who aren't as fortunate, as lockdowns worldwide are causing people to lose their jobs.

Our community has told us that their biggest concern is a change in income, and the stress and uncertainty that comes with it. This is where we can help. We've put our heads together and written a series of guides to help you continually plan up to six months ahead, just by using the free version of our software.

Each guide takes at least 15 minutes to complete, but please take all the time you need as we know you'll find the insights valuable. If you have friends or family who could benefit from this, please pass it on!

One of the best things about working at PocketSmith is getting to know our customers well and being a part of their lives. Over the years, we've come to learn how our personal finances reflect our stories, and that ultimately, we all have a lot in common. As such, we've considered it a privilege to have been a part of every life journey.

The free subscription is yours to keep, forever. We hope this helps, and if you'd like to give us any feedback, or just to tell us how you're going, please drop us a line.

Stay safe, with love from New Zealand,

Jason Leong
CEO and co-founder
